Thank You Notes

Following an interview, promptly write the interviewer a letter expressing appreciation and thanks for the interview.  The thank you note shows your appreciation for the employer’s interest in you; reiterates your interest in the position and organization; reminds the employer about your qualifications; and demonstrates that you have good manners and know how to write a thank you letter.  In addition, you can follow up with any information the employer may have requested.

The Office of Professional Development recommends sending handwritten notes to each individual who interviewed you.  Use professional, blank thank you notes.
