Interview Thank You Letter

It is always appropriate to thank an interviewer after the interview, and a well crafted thank you letter may tip the scales in your favour. It is completely appropriate to send a thank you letter by email.


  • Be concise – don’t reiterate everything that happened in the interview.

  • Send within 24 hours.

  • Write to the lead person you met during the interview process.  Make sure to mention others that were involved in the interview process.

  • Be professional, yet personal – express your desire for the position, yet avoid being overzealous.

  • Reiterate your suitability for the position – briefly summarize your qualifications.  If there was something that was missed in the interview, here might be a good opportunity to make mention of it.

  • Check spelling and grammar – ensure perfection.
