Amazing Sample Job Interview Thank You Letters

Sample job interview thank you letters can be of some use to job seekers, since most thank you letters are quite simple and similar to one another. Consequently, a good template that gives the basic components of a job interview thank you letter can be of assistance. To customize the thank you letter for yourself, simply cut and paste the body of the letter and substitute the heading. No job candidate should only rely on the sample thank you letter all by itself, though. To do so would be to simply blend in with the rest of the candidates sending in virtually identical thank you letters. What’s more, you would be missing out on an opportunity, probably your last to distinguish yourself and create a slight advantage over your competitors for the position.

A sample job interview thank you note should contain at least three thank you note elements. For starters, the letter should express gratitude for the interview. That is, after all, the point of the thank you letter in the first place. Second, the thank you letter should reiterate interest in the position. Thirdly, the thank you letter should invite the recipient to contact you again for a second interview or more information. A simple way to write all these would look something like this: “Thank you for your time and attention yesterday. I appreciate the chance to learn more about the company and the opportunity. The more I learned about the opening, the more excited I am about the chance to move into such an interesting opportunity. Please feel free to give me a call at your convenience so that we can speak again as the hiring process moves forward.”

More Sample Job Interview Thank You Advice

If your sample job interview thank you letter ended there, that would be enough to do the very minimum. If you would like to do more than just the minimum, you can add an element known as the informational gift to the thank you note. The informational gift is a piece of information that you believe the interviewer will appreciate and find valuable. This information does not have to be elaborate or particularly life-changing either. It could be something as simple as a link to an article online, a list or a contact name and number that you believe the interviewer could use. You pick the content of the informational gift based on your interactions with the interviewer during your talk and the subjects and topics that appeared to be of most interest to him or her.

The way that you add this informational gift to your sample job interview is by prefacing it with an explanation of how you decided to send it. For instance, you might write something like this: “During our talk, you saw that my resume lists marathon running as a topic and said that you’ve always wanted to run one yourself someday. I’ve added the name and contact details for a coach who helped me greatly when I began training for my first long race. He is very good at building up runners slowly and I can highly recommend his professionalism. Good luck and I hope to speak to you soon.”
