I'm always thrilled when someone thanks me for helping them or for giving them advice. I'm not the only one who likes being appreciated - employers like being thanked, too.
The job applicants who make the best impression are the candidates who take the time to say thank you after a job interview. It doesn't take much time to send a quick thank you letter, thank you note, or email. In addition to being polite, a thank you letter 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.
If you're not sure what to write, review a sample thank you letter or two to get some ideas and suggestions.
