Within 24 hours (sooner is better than later) after an interview, send a follow-up thank you email. Use the email address that is in your contact information section of your resume.
Be brief and include the following:
- Who you are
- Your name and what position you applied for
- When you met
- The time and day of the interview
- Thank them for their time
That’s it. They are busy and do not have a lot of time to spare. This quick reminder shows them that your are serious about the position and your ability to communicate effectively.
If there is something you thought of after the interview that you wished to express, do so. Keep it to a few sentences and keep it professional.
