Weekly Tip #41: How to Stand Out With a Thank You Note
Chances are, your interviewer has met with 10, 20, or even more job candidates. Remind them why you should be their top pick by sending a brief, personalized thank you note. Remember, less is more. Be succinct – 3 or 4 sentences are perfect.
Touch on these important points:
- Thank them for their time
- Express the top reason you’re right for the job, based on their most important need
- If possible, make a brief reference to the interviewer (did they mention a hobby, pet, or recent vacation?)
Finish off your note with a sincere appreciation of their time and how you’re looking forward to continuing the process. For more tips about thank you notes, and how to optimize your job search, visit our website.
