Interview Thank you Card - Page 2Register Today!
- Feb 5 by five10fevrI went on my first new grad interview today. I want to send a thank you card tomorrow. The only thing is I should find out if I got the job Wed at the latest. Do you think I should email the recruiter tomorrow as I don't have the managers email address.
Any advice on the matter would be great,
- Feb 5 by dah doh@justchill: too long! Keep it short...just a few sentences...look at ChrisRN24's example...succinct and to the point! A personal side note is good or thanking the interview panel by name is nice too.

Good job on sending out thank you letters / cards for interviews.
As someone who has been hired (in part due to the thank you letter) as well as someone who did perform hiring, thank you cards and notes were worth the extra points.
- Feb 5 by justchillThanks. I was short and simple and added a little personal part to it. Hey, it can't hurt my chances.

Dear Mr. .......,
Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to interview me about the registered nurse position at the..........Regional Medical Center. I highly appreciate your time and consideration. After speaking with you, I believe that I am a great candidate for this position, offering adaptability and strong desire to learn. I value how you manage your units in a combined fashion, making teamwork a strong priority.
I am very interested in working for you, this institution and caring for its patients. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Please feel free to contact me at any time if anything further information is need. My phone number is 000-000-0000. Thank you again for your time and consideration.
I changed things for identity purpose. The last line is something specific from the interview to make it more personal. The interviewer is the manager of four units (small hospital) and he told me how he operates them together so they are able to help each other with staffing and such so does that line make sense to any of you?
- Feb 5 by justchillQuote from KelRN215I overhauled the whole thing saying pretty much Thank you for your time and consideration. I enjoyed having the chance to interview with you. I look forward to hearing from you soon and added a sentence about a point we talked about in the interview. I think it was four or five sentences
I think this first sentence sounds awkward. You interview someone about a topic, you interview someone FOR a job.
- Feb 6 by joanna73As someone who has hired for various positions in past roles, I will say that your interview thank you is a great idea, but too long. Keep it short and sweet. Four sentences maximum. As in, "thank you for meeting with me regarding x RN position. I value the way in which your unit makes teamwork a priority. I am very interested in working with you."
- Feb 6 by ♪♫ in my ♥My only comments are:
1) Overall, well done
2) Dump the superlatives: "highly appreciate," "very interested"
3) Consider clearly articulating 'how' you're a great candidate for his 'team-oriented' approach with a concrete example from your life.
