The Benefits Of Sending A Thank After Interview EmailBy BenOni | January 26, 2023
By doing so, you create the opportunity to:
-reiterate your interest in the job and company
-highlight your qualifications
-thank the interviewer for their time
-strengthen the relationship between you and the interviewer
-make a lasting impression
Sending a thank you email after an interview is always a good idea. In fact, some employers think less of those interviewees who fail to follow-up promptly. It’s best to send a thank you email within 24 hours of your interview. If you interviewed on a Friday, you have the entire weekend to write and send your email.
But what do you say in a thank you email after an interview?
Your thank you email should be brief, concise, and to the point. You don’t need to write a novel, but you do want to express your appreciation for the interviewer’s time, reiterate your interest in the job, and leave the door open for further communication.
Here’s a sample thank you email after an interview:
Subject: Thank you, [Interviewer’s Name]
Hello [Interviewer’s Name],
