Portland Job Seekers: The Post-Job Interview Thank You Letter


Getting that thank you letter written is your top priority in the post-interview process. Here, we will be expanding on what exactly those letters should entail and how they should be written. While you are applying for Portland jobs, here is how you should go about putting together your post-interview thank you.

1. Keep it professional: while thank you letters tend to be more personalized than cover letters, still try to keep them formal and professional as possible. Thank yous written in this way are more likely to impress.

2. Send one to each person you interviewed with: if you interviewed with more than one person, it is a good idea to send a thank you to each interviewer. If this is the case, it is best to customize each thank you, and have them address the topics that came up during your conversations with them.

3. Email it: you want to send your thank you letter right away (within 48 hours), so email it. Emailing thank you letters is an acceptable and common practice. It doesn’t even have to be an attached document. You could have your thank you in the body of the email, so long as it is concise and well written.

4. Send one even if you don’t get the job: if you get turned down, you should still send a letter thanking them for your time. This will end your interaction with the company on a positive note, and they may remember you down the line for it.
