In our Revolution Marketing & Management office, we stress that it is important to show appreciation, especially following a meeting. Letter writing is a lost art. At the same time, many interviewers indicate that applicants who take the time to write a thank-you note after an interview have a decided edge. Here are some tips to write an effective thank-you note:
” Be Prompt: One of our key Revolution Marketing & Management values is promptness. With an interview thank you, the best practice is to email one within 24 hours of the meeting. This timing is essential. Within the first day, interviewers will still remember a candidate and the conversation. Any longer, and the meeting details might not be as clear.
” Make It Personal: In our Revolution Marketing & Management training, we discuss why it is important to tailor our messages to customers. The secret to getting attention is to make it personal. With an interview thank you, a candidate might reflect on positive points about the company that he or she learned. This shows the interviewer that this applicant was paying attention. Keep in mind that sincerity matters here.
” Confirm Your Interest: An effective interview thank-you note ends with a desire to move to the next steps. This statement should indicate an authentic interest in the position.
