Thank-You Letters

by ResumeEdge.com - The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service

To be called in for an interview is a success in and of itself — but the application process isn’t over yet.

To make the most of the after-interview stage, always send a personalized thank-you letter to the hiring manager. Not only does this indicate your continued interest in the position, but it also shows follow-through and a level of professionalism that can’t be beat.

Make sure that your letter uses the same heading as your resume and initial cover letter, as this maintains consistency. Also, keep it brief, mentioning only the highlights of your meeting with the hiring manager. This will serve to remind that person of the skills and qualifications you can bring to the opening.

If there were some matters that you forgot to mention during the interview, such as your ability to work extra hours and take on extra responsibilities, a thank-you letter is the perfect way to introduce this.
