Writing A Thank You Letter After An Interview

When you’ve interviewed you must send a thank you letter! Very few people send one so be the one to stand out. A few things to remember when you do start writing:
  • Don’t start every sentence with “I”. When you say “I” all the time it makes you look self centered. It’s about what you can do for the company, not what they can do for you. Get creative and restructure your sentences to change things up.
  • Watch your grammar and spelling – double check everything.
  • Make sure you pitch (sell) yourself and do it well. You interviewed there and now you know more about the job. Every sentence written should show why you should be working at the company.
  • Keep it short and simple. Never go over a few short paragraphs and never over one page.
