A thank you note for an interview should be mailed no later than two days after the interview, and it does only two things. It puts your name again in front of the person you interviewed with in a different, positive way. And it shows what good manners you have! Be brief, thanking the interviewer for their time, add a line about how interested you are in the position, and leave contact information in case they want to offer you the job!
- Thank you very much for speaking with me about your editorial opening at ABC Publishing Company. I really enjoyed learning about the opportunity, and appreciate being considered for the position. I would love to join your team! Please feel free to contact me anytime at [insert contact info here]. Thanks again!
Regardless of how you share your gratitude, be authentic, be you, and your attitude of gratitude will almost certainly be contagious.
P.S. Thank you for reading!
