Thank you letters are usually sent after an interview for a job, but in other situations as well.
The most important part of a thank you letter is reinforcing your position, your interest and your commitment.
If you are writing a thank you letter after an interview, repeat your skills and the facts that make you the best candidate. Send a thank you letter no later than 24 hours after meeting the person you want to say thanks to.
It is relevant to send a thank you letter after you have had an interview. It raises your chances to get hired. In the same time, it will make your potential employer notice you more easily. Show of gratitude will make any employer like you and appreciate you, which is the first step towards getting hired.
Another great thing about thank you letters that you should know is that they offer a chance to mention anything extra that you perhaps forgot to say during the interview. After you have applied for a job and went to an interview, remember to send a thank you note to the manager and the interviewer as well that you have met.
