You can ace the interview, but what often
separates an impressive candidate from the one who gets the job is
the post-interview thank-you note. Following are some tips from
Maynard, Mass.-based job search website, Monster.com.
E-mail vs. snail mail. If you already have
corresponded with the firm via e-mail, an e-mail thank-you note
sent immediately after an interview is appropriate. Make sure to
follow it up with a typed note sent via traditional mail.
First paragraph. Thank the interviewer for his
or her time in the opening paragraph.
Second paragraph. Reiterate points you made
during your interview, further emphasize a certain skill or
experience you have, or bring up any points you forgot to make in
Third paragraph. Close your message with a
brief recap of how your skills are well matched to the position.
Before sending the note, make sure to check that spelling and
grammar are correct.
