Writing a thank-you email to your interviewers shows that you are gracious and thoughtful. Sending one doesn’t guarantee that you will get hired. However, it puts you ahead of your competition. Don’t randomly send them, they need to be personalized.

A thank you note should be written and sent within 24 hours after every interview. Employers will view your thank you email as part of the hiring process. It makes a good impression to your interviewer and demonstrates the kind of employee you would be. Let’s see how you can send the most professional thank you emails.  

Subject line

Begin with a clear and concise subject line. Examples of subject lines can be, “Thank you (interviewer’s name), I enjoyed learning about (company name).” Labelling your subject line ensures that your thank you email gets opened.

Greeting and appreciation

Open with a greeting addressing the hiring manager by name. If you were interviewed with more than one interviewer send a personalized email to each of them (yes, you read that right. I said each of them). Then the next statement is to thank them. For example, “Thank you so much for the meeting today. I enjoyed learning more about the position of Digital Marketer in the company…” Show that you care on the time invested by the recruiters who described details of the position.

Interests

After thanking them, you can show eagerness to join by using a conversation point that was spoken about in the interview. Example, “The conversation we had on customer service made me more excited to join (company name).” Being specific on what was discussed makes it more personalized. Include your skills and explain its relevance to the position.

Additional information

Ending your thank you email by inviting them to ask any additional questions.  It needs to be brief. For example, “In case you need additional information from me, don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.” Then close with a sign off like “sincerely” followed by your name. Below your name, put your contact information and add links to your social media (this is optional).
