Send a "Thank you" note after the interview

It is very important to send thank you letters within 24-48 hours after your interview.  In the thank you, make sure to:

  • Reiterate your interest in the position
  • Mention the qualifications you want to emphasize
  • Genuinely thank the interviewers for their time


Reflect, make notes, and prepare for your next interview

Besides sending a thank you, you may also find it useful to reflect on what you did well and consider what you might do differently at your next interview.


Did you feel some answers you provided were awesome? Jot them down! Were there questions you struggled with? Think about how you can better answer them in the future.


This process will help you continue to grow and enhance your interviewing skills.

Close the deal and get the offer you want and deserve!
