The candidates for employment that make the best impression are the ones who take the time to say thank you after an interview. It doesn't take much time to send a quick thank you letter, note, or email.
Thank you phone calls work, too. In fact, some employers prefer a follow up phone call to a note or email message.
In addition to being polite, taking the time to say thank you is a good way to reiterate your interest in the job and to remind the hiring manager of why you would be an asset to the company.
It's important to say thank you after a job interview and after a second interview as well. It's also important to thank everyone you interviewed with and everyone who assisted with your job search. Here's information on thank you letters including who you should thank and the best way to thank them.
