About The Center & Staff Directory

After Your Interview

  • Let the interviewer end the interview. Thank them for the opportunity and try to get business cards from everyone you met with.
  • Take notes immediately after you leave while the information is still fresh–what went well, what did you wish you had mentioned? Did they say anything about decision-making timelines?
  • Follow up with a "thank you" email or letter within 24-48 hours after the interview. If there was a committee or group, you can request the main interviewer to extend your appreciation to the entire interview team.
  • Stay in touch and follow-up in the allotted time frame if you do not hear back.
  • Set up and monitor your voicemail and e-mail regularly (always give your phone number when leaving a voicemail for an employer).

Sample Thank You Note

Both email and handwritten are appropriate. If emailing, use "(Name of Position) Interview Follow-up" as the Subject. If sending a handwritten note, be sure to use your best penmanship and drop it off or address the envelope correctly.

Dear Mr./Ms./Dr. _______________:

Express your thanks for their time during the interview or meeting. Reemphasize one of your strongest qualities and details from your conversation. Draw connections between the position and your skills and experiences. Explain why their organization is a good fit for you.

Reiterate your interest in the position. Provide additional contact information (phone and/or email). Tell the recipient that you are looking forward to hearing from them.

Sincerely,

Your name
