Post-Interview Thank You Note Samples for Potential Employers

Did you know that a post-interview thank you note can give you an edge

over competing job-seekers?

It can. And here's how:

It will remind the interviewer of two important things:

Your sincere interest in the position

Your related skills and qualifications

You should also

send a post-interview thank you note when

you've decided to decline an offer. If you ever interview with the same employer again for a different position, you'll be glad you did!

Feel free to modify

any post-interview thank you note below to suit your needs.

Happy Interviewing!

for Headhunters:

This kind of post-interview note is often neglected.

Most efforts are spent on wooing the potential employer.

Never forget, however, that recruiters often have a number of great contacts. He or she can steer you to opportunities that you never knew existed.

When a recruiter does take a chance on you and recommends you to one of his or her coveted contacts, count yourself blessed. And acknowledge his or her kindness and hard work by sending a great thank you note.


Dear Ms. Bickham:

You have truly outdone yourself this time! Silar, Webb and Associates is a great law firm, and I thank you for the referral.

The first interview went well. I should be hearing from them soon regarding a second interview with one of the partners. I know that you worked hard to make this happen, and I really appreciate it.

Thanks again, for such a wonderful opportunity.
