Thank You Notes

Basic Rules

Email a thank you note within 24 hours of the interview.

  • Thank You emails should be sent to each person who interviews you. If you have met several people, you can either write each person (if you have names, titles, etc.) or write the search committee chair.
  • Be certain to have the correct name and address for the recipient. Remember that spelling and grammar count. If you did not get a business card from the interviewer, call the organization (or check the website) to get the proper spelling and title.
  • Thank the person for their time and interest in interviewing you for the position. Mention something very specific that came up in your meeting so that the Interviewer knows that you paid attention and will more easily remember your conversation. Then be certain to thank them again for their time and interest.
  • Keep it short. A thank you note should be just a few well-written sentences.
  • Do a basic Google search for Sample Thank You letters.
  • An additional mailed thank you note is optional. Note paper can be purchased at most stationary stores. Use “Thank You Notes” that have Thank You printed on the front flap or those that are blank.
