After a Job Interview
After a job interview, send a short thank you note on paper or on email to the manager. The note is a way to thank the manager for interviewing you for the job. It will keep your name in the manager’s mind.
Write the thank you note as soon as you get home from the interview. It is important to have the manager read it before he or she forgets who you are.
Keep the thank you note short. One half of a page is enough. First, thank the manager for the interview. Next, write a sentence or two about why you are the best person for the job. Your thank you note may look something like this:
Dear Ms. Potter,
Thank you for meeting with me on Monday to discuss the
cashier job at your grocery store. I know I could do the job
well. I am a hard worker and learn quickly. In my last job,
my manager would ask me to help others learn. I know I
would become a great member of your team.
I look forward to hearing from you.
