WRITING A THANK YOU LETTER THAT SELLS

Thank you letters serve many purposes: They reinforce your interest in a specific position, correct a first impression and build on the relationship you’ve already established with the interviewer. Your thank you letter should be emailed, faxed, mailed or dropped off within 24 hours of your interview. The letter should be in a professional business format. Below is a four-part structure to help you get more mileage from your message:

  1. Tell the interviewer how much you enjoyed meeting him or her.
  2. Express your enthusiasm for the company and position.
  3. Reiterate a specific selling point that was discussed in the interview.
  4. Establish your next point of contact.

Remember, it is very important to sound genuine and sincere, and that requires a personal touch. Below is a sample thank you letter:
