Thank you notes are an important part of the job search. By sending a thank you note, you will stand out from other candidates.
     
  • Send a thank you note immediately after the interview. If you interviewed with multiple people, send each one a personalized thank you note—do not send the same note to each person.

  • Generate the thank you note on your word processor—do not hand write.

  • Emailing thank you notes is an accepted practice.

  • Confirm the spelling of all names and exact titles.

  • Spell check and proofread for typos and grammar.

  • Reiterate your interest in the position, your qualifications, how you can benefit the company and why you are the one for the job.

  • Be enthusiastic and to the point.
