Thank You Letter Help
- The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service
According to a recent survey, less
than 20% of applicants write a thank you note after an interview.
Of the recruiters surveyed, 94% said that a thank you letter would
increase the applicant's chances of getting the job, or at least
help him/her stay in the running, provided the applicant is otherwise
qualified. Fifteen minutes of your time and a first class postage
stamp are very inexpensive investments in your career!
Thank you letters simply thank the
interviewer for his or her time and reiterate some of the important
things you learned about the company in the interview. Add some
key qualifications that you forgot to mention in the interview,
or emphasize some of the more important things you discussed. If
the interviewer shared some information that gave you an insight
into the company and its culture, mention how much you appreciated
A thank you letter should be short
-- three paragraphs at the most. Don't try for the hard sell.
You had your chance in the interview. The thank you letter just
reinforces what you have already said.
