“Thanks for the Interview”… Then What?!

“Thanks for the Interview”… Then What?!

Our office is in the middle of On Campus Recruiting, which makes it easier for students and employers to connect.  We talk with our students about what to wear and how to prepare for the questions they may be asked during their interviews.  We also stress the importance of following up with the employer after the interview- by email, snail mail, or both.  Many students know that they should thank the interviewer for coming to campus and taking the time to meet with them but what to say and how to say it can sometimes be a struggle.

 

This article from Careerealism addresses some of the things you can include in your thank you note.  You don’t want to send the same generic note to everyone, so these suggestions are perfect for ways you can tailor each note to each interviewer.  The interview doesn’t end when you walk out the door!  Your thank you note is a perfect opportunity to re-affirm that you are the perfect candidate for the job.  Plus, it’s a strong lasting impression to show you are serious and committed to the position by taking the time and paying attention to the details.
