Writing Post-Interview Thank-You Letters Is Smart Business Etiquette

It is crucial and courteous to send thank-you letters after your interview is over. Not many do. Reports show that only 5 percent understand the importance of the post-interview letter and actually send it.

The question is how do you write one and what is the right way to go about it?

Some job applicants feel that it could be perceived as a sign of desperation or that they are trying to molly coddle the interviewer. Far from it, most employers are happy to receive a thank-you note. It is common courtesy and good manners to do so.



There is no ideal format for a thank-you note. Just tailor it to the culture of the company and the type of rapport you developed with the person who interviewed you. If the person was reserved and formal, send a formal typed letter, on the other hand if the person was jovial, cordial and exuded warmth and kindness add a personal touch to the letter and send him a handwritten one.

However, just make sure that your letter is not shoddy and full of typos, badly spelt words and grammatical mistakes. Spell check and proof read your letters.

I am posting a sample letter, but be careful that you use just the basic structure and not copy it verbatim. Just keep in mind, that through your letter you are showing your appreciation for the interviewer's time and effort.

Dear Dr. Jeremiah:

I would like to express my deep appreciation for the opportunity to interview for the marketing position. It was a privilege that I feel fortunate to have availed of.

I appreciate your hospitality and your warm and cordial nature quelled my nervousness and created an atmosphere of friendliness and camaraderie.

Your work environment and the interview convinced me that my skills and knowledge are in consonance with your company and I will be able to contribute to its growth and success.

My earlier experiences will empower me, to ensure that I can show a positive growth in revenue for the company within a couple of years of my joining.

You are welcome to contact my former employer Mr. Charles Peter at 202/826-0456 for any information that you may want to clarify.

I look forward to seeing you again and working for your company

Sincerely yours,

John Daniel
