With the economy gaining momentum and college graduation season upon us, several of you will be going out on interviews over the next few months. While preparing for an interview is very important, I wanted to offer a valuable post interview etiquette tip that will leave a lasting impression – sending an interview thank you letter.
Writing a letter is more than just a common courtesy to express your appreciation for being considered for a position. Above and beyond this, it is part of the selling process. Use the letter as an opportunity to reiterate your interest in the position, remind the employer about your strengths and qualifications, provide any follow up information requested and improve upon an answer you gave during the interview. Going beyond the standard letter will certainly give you an edge over other job candidates.
