Should I send a thank you note after an interview?

After an interview, it’s always a nice touch to say thank you in writing. Formal letters sent through the mail aren’t necessary, although if that’s your cup of tea, go for it. In this day and age, sending a thank you email is fine.

Thank you emails need to be short and concise – no more than two or three sentences at the most.  This is not an opportunity to sell yourself or further convince them to hire you, just a chance to express gratitude for the opportunity.


Dear Hiring Manager [ USE THEIR NAME ],

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me yesterday. I am excited about the opportunity to work with [ COMPANY NAME] as [ JOB TITLE ] and look forward to discussing it with you further. Please let me know if you need any additional information.



If you feel like you left some stone unturned during the interview process you can suggest a follow-up conversation, but only if you really feel the need. Be concise and gracious!
