 Marta Gongos- Ad Culture By Marta Gongos

So you just completed an interview with a potential employer. Great! Show your appreciation by sending a thank you email.

When you write a thank you email after an interview, make sure that you send it within 24 hours while the interviewer can still clearly recall your name and your conversation. Make it short, thoughtful, and professional. This is also an opportunity to include any additional information the employer requested during the interview.

Not sure how to go about it? Here are some post-interview thank you email samples to help you compose your own.

Post-Interview Thank You Email Templates 

Whether you prefer to send actual mail, a card, or an email, you can use the following templates to create a more personalized thank you letter.

1. Make it Short and Direct

Even the busiest hiring managers will appreciate a thank you letter. Often, you only need to keep it short and succinct. The following example shows your appreciation to a hiring manager without taking too much of their precious time.

Hi [Interviewer’s Name],

Thank you very much again for taking the time to meet with me [today/yesterday] regarding the [role title] position. 

I truly enjoyed our conversation and appreciate your effort in explaining the role and expectations for the position. It was a pleasure learning more about your team’s goals, and I am very excited about the opportunity to use my experience to help the team achieve those targets.

I look forward to hearing your feedback and potentially working with you.

Best regards,

[Your Name]

2. Be Concise and Specific

Sometimes, mentioning something specific about the role or the company can help you gain a leg up on the competition. This shows your genuine interest in growing with a company that aligns with your values and professional goals. The template below is an example of a candidate mentioning a key project that could be vital for the role.

Hi [Interviewer’s Name],

Thank you very much for meeting with me [today/yesterday] regarding the [role title] position with [company name].

It was such a pleasure learning more about the company and the role. From our conversation, I can say that it would be a very rewarding experience to be working on [name of the project or task], and I want to offer a few ideas that might be beneficial as you move forward with your project. I would be glad to briefly discuss them further with you if you’re interested.

I look forward to hearing about the next steps in the hiring process!

Best regards,

3. Offer Actionable Insights

Hiring managers want to hear something unique. If you think you are fit for the role, but the interview fell short of showing your competence, you can offer some insights that could help them decide in your favour.

Hi [Interviewer’s Name],

Thank you very much for considering me for the [role title] position. It was great meeting you and learning more about the company and the role.

You mentioned during the interview that you need [something specific] for [project/task/problem], and it got me thinking. I came up with a few ideas, and I’ve attached here a short [mock/draft] for your consideration. I’d be very happy to discuss them in more detail with you should you find them helpful! 

It would be such a privilege to be a part of your team and work alongside you on this project. I included a link to my previous projects as well to give you some insights into how I work and could possibly meet the expectations for the role. 

I am sincerely looking forward to hearing more from you. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out. 

Best regards,
