There are few things more impactful than a sincere thank you. Below, I’m sharing my tips on how to write the perfect note so you can continue to shine even after your interview.
Timing Is Everything
When writing a thank you note, the sooner you send, the better. That way the conversation will still be fresh in your mind, and you’ll easily demonstrate your professionalism and respect.
Free Up Your Format
While a hand-written thank you is necessary for gifts, an email is perfectly appropriate for after an interview. Again, timing is everything, so speed in this case is more important than style (which I rarely say!).
Aside from thanking the person for their time, be sure to bring up details of what you both discussed. Mention a new initiative you were excited to learn about, what resonated with you about the company culture, or why you’d love to join a particular department.
State why you’re uniquely qualified for the job. You don’t need to go as in-depth as you would on your resume, but I’m always impressed by people who are clear about, and confident in, their skill set.
Show Your Personality
Use this space to demonstrate how you’d communicate in the workplace. This is a time where you can let your personality come through—but best to save the emojis for inter-office chats.
