Writing a Thank You Email After a Job Interview
A thank you email gives you a chance to thank the interviewer for considering you for the job. The email will show that that you are really interested in the company and the job and to put in writing reasons why you're a good fit for the position. It will also help you to look more professional and courteous which are good qualities for any position. If you're the only candidate to send a thank you email, you will definitely stand out.


Thank You Email Format
The thank you email should be be concise, only 3-4 paragraphs. It should express your gratitude, your interest in the position and reiterates why you're qualified for the position.

Start the first paragraph of your email by thanking the interviewer for interviewing you. You can remind him/her as to when the interview was and for what position. (e.g. "Thank you for taking the time to interviewing me for the Senior Engineer of Blue Widgets position on March 3.") You can also include your positive impressions of the company as well. (e.g. "I was really impressed with your long history of innovation.")

In the next 1-2 paragraphs you can reiterate your strengths that you already communicated during the interview (e.g. "I feel like my 10 years of experience in engineering red widgets would make me an ideal candidate."), expand on points that were or were not made during the interview (e.g. "In our interview, I forgot to mention that I've written over 12 patents related to widgets."), and/or clarify any potential misunderstandings (e.g. "I wanted make it clear that I left my prior company on good terms, but due to my wife's health, I needed to relocate to a warmer climate")

The closing paragraph should let the interviewer know that you are interested in the position, that you're available to communicate further, and hope to hear from them soon. (e.g. "I look forward to hearing from you soon about your decision on the Senior Engineer of Blue Widgets position. You can contact me through this email address or by calling me at 555-555-5555") End the letter by thanking them again. (e.g. "Thanks again for allowing me the opportunity to interview with Best Widgets Inc.")

When to Send a Thank You Email
Try to send your thank you email within 24 hours but no more than 48 hours after the interview.


Thank You for Job Interview Email Sample
Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. Last Name of Interviewer:

Thank you for the opportunity to tour the Grand Fiesta facilities yesterday. I found Grand Fiesta's operating procedures to be highly impressive. I enjoyed both the tour and the interview immensely.

Your operating procedures are very similar to the ones that I researched and studied while I was in school and worked with for 3 years in my prior company. I feel like I would need minimal training and could really add value in this area.

Now that I have personally seen your company in action, I am even more enthusiastic about the position at Grand Fiesta. I am looking forward to hearing your final decision; feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I would like to thank you again for arranging the interview and for the warm welcome I received during my visit.

Sincerely,

Your name
