Thank You Letter Advice

Writing a "thank you" letter after your job interview is very important to your job search success. You should absolutely send a thank you letter to anyone who gives you help when searching for a job. Write the letter as soon as possible to have the greatest effect. Always remind the reader of what was discussed and how you plan to act on the information you received. A "thank you" after a job interview may be the difference between getting the job and not.

  • Write a thank you letter as soon as possible after your interview.
  • Always try and include something that you forgot to tell the interviewer that is an additional positive attribute of your skill set.
  • Refer to something you learned about the company or position while on the interview.
  • Reinforce the most important aspects of your qualifications.
  • Restate your interest in the position.
  • Exhibit confidence and enthusiasm.

Dear Mr. Carter,

It was a pleasure meeting with you yesterday to discuss the possible opportunities in Industrial Engineering at Occidental Chemical. Your vision for expansion was very interesting and you shared a lot of good ideas concerning how beneficial new growth can be especially to the surrounding community.

My prior work experience for a plastic manufacturing company has given me insight of what issues can arise when a company starts to quickly grow. As you learned from our conversation, I also worked in quality control and I am very understanding of your commitment to quality during a fast paced growth phase.

I am very interested in the Industrial Engineering position that we discussed. I am very confident that my skill set and prior experience will add a lot of value to your team. I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Best Regards,

Sean Williams
