Follow Up after an Interview

Thank your interviewers for the opportunity to talk to them.


After the interview:

  • Send a thank you note either the same day or the next day after your interview. The note should be basic and professional.
  • In the event that multiple people interviewed you, each individual should receive a thank you note.
  • Thank you notes should be hand-written.
  • Depending on the timeframe the employer has told you in which they will make a decision, a follow-up call inquiring about the status of the position may be appropriate.

Here's a sample thank you note:

Dear Mr./Ms. Interviewer,
