A thank you email is part of most people at some point. It doesn’t matter if you just had a job interview or just made a sale. However, many still don’t know how to do it.
Well-crafted thank you email make a great difference when it comes to getting a job, or even make your customers happier and more faithful. It shows your interest and make you seem more friendly to your recipient.
Hiring experts say at least 75% of people feel influenced by a thanks message, it should be brief (around 3-4 paragraphs) and the right timing for them is around 24h after your interview. Why is that? Because your profile will still be fresh in their minds, which will make you more memorable.
Beyond just looking more enthusiastic with your opportunity, saying thanks makes people see you with more acknowledgement.
In order to get all these advantages of a thank you email, you must send an unique message, which should reiterate points discussed during your meeting.
When you’ll start writing your thank you email, remember to have empathy and put yourself in your audience’s shoes. Always mention good points which happened during your meeting and remember them you’re thanking for something because you really want it. Your interest makes your message so much more valuable. Think about connections you have and how you can explore them.
Alright! Now that you already have some tips, it’s time to get some templates of how you can write it down. So let’s get started with a job interview thanks message:
