I know this is preached over and over– “Send a thank-you note after an interview.” But it is more than that. Although thank you notes have lost their way in our society, they can leave a lasting impression on the person you are trying to impress.
- Length– our thank you note does not have to be long. On a regular folded card or postcard, it may be only 4-5 sentences.
- What to say– Start out with who you are. Continue with thanking them for their time, expertise, or consideration. Then, try to stand out to your reader. Mention something specific in your letter. For example, if you are sending a thank-you note to a classroom speaker, mention something that intrigued your interest. If you were being interviewed for a position, mention something specific that you would love to work on that would be one of your responsibilities.
