Thank You Letters
- A thank you letter should be written immediately after you complete a job interview.
- You will want to be brief but yet touch upon some of the most pertinent facts form the interview.
- You will want to reinforce your interest in the position and your ability to do the job.
- You may want to write a conventional letter to send through the US mail. You may also opt to send a "Thank You email", (this is becoming more popular), or even send a thank you card. Whichever method you choose, sending a "thank you follow-up" shows that you are a professional.
