There are seldom people who write thank-you emails after giving a job interview. But the ones who do write it are often left feeling blank in the process. If you are that someone, then try not to hesitate in writing a letter. Writing a thank you letter is an accomplishment in itself. You will become prominent in the pile of candidates that have been interviewed but failed to write a letter. If you want to make yourself better in this, then follow the tips mentioned below;

Basics of a Thank you Letter

If you plan to write a thank you letter, you should try to follow a set of rules. Whether you are writing a handwritten letter or using an email, you should write it in the business letter format. That is the most professional form of letters, so it is considered the most appropriate. Subject-line is a must if you write an email. Try to mention that you are thankful that the interviewer took your interview. You should also repeat your job skills and qualifications so that the interviewer is reminded of you and considers how you can be a good fit for the company. After this, write a thank you, and your Letter will be completed.

Timing Is Important

You should never delay while sending a thank you Letter. Try to send a letter on the first business day after the interview. If you promptly send a letter, it highlights that you are interested in the job and want to be a part of that company. Any delay in sending out the thank you letter will not be seen as useful by the interviewer. It could give a wrong impression as well. It might show that you applied to several jobs and now that you have not been accepted there, you want to settle in for this company.

Be Concise

It would help if you tried to keep your Letter short and to the point. If you write within 200 words, then that will be fine. Most of the interviewers do not have the time to read the entire Letter, so focus on writing the essentials and skipping the extra details.

Proofread Your Letter

Another essential thing to do is to read your Letter thoroughly. Sometimes, there are grammatical errors in writing, and the person does not check it while sending. The reader then gets a terrible impression of the person. To make things easier for yourself, you could make your Letter go through a grammar checking site like Grammarly.
