Job Interview, Then What?
from www.womenswallstreet.com (2005)
You had your job interview. It went swimmingly. Now What? Should you send an old-style, thank-you note or is an email now acceptable? What makes sense, or rather cents, in today’s ever-changing business world?
The form your thank-you note takes is not nearly as important as the fact that you’re sending one. If you’re old school and more comfortable with pen and ink, get out the letter box. If you’re an electronic kinda person, get typing. Either way, be sure to include the following in your “thank you for the job interview’ note:
- All the correct information regarding the person who interviewed you. If you left the interview on a first name basis, terrific! But in your letter, revert back to formal titles.
- Keep it simple. Greet the person, mention one or two things that excited you about the job, thank the person for their time and sign your name.
- Include all of your information.
Lick the stamp or hit send and move on. You part is now done — well done!
