a short and sweet sample thank you email you could send after an interview

this one is concise and to the point, perfect if you’re looking for a quick follow-up after a phone interview or first round and want to use the template more or less to the fullest.

Hi Jimmy,

thank you very much for chatting with me today. It was a great pleasure learning more about the Marketing Manager role, and I’m really excited about the opportunity to join the news team and help your team reach a new audience with your amazing content.

I look forward to hearing from you about the next steps, but please feel free to contact me if I can provide you with additional information.

a sample interview thank you email that gets a bit more specific

Our template is just a starting point. You can always be more specific with your thank you note. Show that you were paying attention in the interview and reiterate that you would be a great fit for the job with an email that looks more like this:

hello mrs. bernard,

I just wanted to thank you for inviting me into your office today. it was great to hear about 4apps’ goals to optimize their software and put an emphasis on quality ux design, as well as how they see the engineering department playing a role in these initiatives.

4apps sounds like a wonderful place to work, and not just because you mentioned some great summer outings! I really admire the mission that drives your business and I look forward to helping your team implement some of the ideas I mentioned about the home page redesign.

please let me know if there is anything else you need from me to move the process forward.

have a great rest of your week,

kyle chang

a sample interview thank you note that goes above and beyond

While the template above is all you need, if you really want to wow a hiring manager, add a few more lines before “I look forward to…” with any ideas you have on how you could add value. think: a quick mockup of something you discussed in the interview if you’re in a creative role, taglines if you’re in branding, or some slides or potential partners if you’re in business development or sales.

hi jamaal,

thank you so much for meeting me today. I really enjoyed learning more about your career path at carruns (and hearing what it was like to join as the fifth employee – how awesome!) and where you think the company will be headed in the next two years.

To follow up on our conversation about customers who have left, I’ve attached a short presentation simulating my initial ideas for increasing renewals. happy to discuss further if you see it as a useful resource.

I can say that carruns is a special place to work, and I would love to join a team of such innovative, hard-working and passionate people. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide to make your hiring decision easier.

Best regards,

Another way to go the extra mile, especially if your interviewer is more traditional or has a feeling they’d appreciate a handwritten note, is to mail a card as well. To connect the two, you can simply add a line to your email like:

p.s. Just because I appreciate handwritten thank you notes, you should get a letter in the mail/I left a letter at the front desk too!

(And yes, even if you send a note by mail, you’ll want to send the thank you email to cover your needs, in case your interviewer doesn’t get the letter right away.)
