Interview Thank you Card

  1. 1
    How does this sound?

    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?

    If it was me, I would make it less formal. "Dear mr x, I enjoyed getting the chance to interview with you last week. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, X."

    If you had any personal moment during the interview you can add it in. "I hope your daughter won her soccer game" or "I hope your wife is doing well, it was interesting to hear about get career as an ICU nurse."

    A thank you card isn't a resume. It's a chance for the interviewer to remember you and to make a good impression. He has your résumé so just thank him for the opportunity.

    Very true. I was just always taught to restate my interest in the job and touch on something talking about in the interview then about I'm a good candidate.

    Thanks for your advice. I see how it sounds a little like a resume.

    What do you think about my sentence on the management of the floors? We really didn't have any personal moments.

    I think it's good but again if its me, I would make it less formal. "I really like how the units are run together, putting an emphasis on teamwork."

    Again, you already sold yourself so now it's your time to show yourself, show you are caring!!

    I have trouble with putting thoughts on paper. That sounds great actually. Thanks so much. He said I can expect to hear anything by the end of next week because they do backgrounds before they make offers. I think the interview went well save for in the beginning he asked tell me about yourself and I feel like I fell flat :/ its a new grad position so I'm hoping to get it. I really like the hospital.

    When I got an interview...afterwards I got cards for the HR rep and the nurse manager who interviewed me. It was short and sweet...they are busy ppl so I didn't want to keep them I could've written a book. Lol.

    I just said thank you so much for taking the time out to interview me and really look forward to hearing back from you! Ps, I got the job and they LOVED the card! They told me that they rarely if ever get cards?! I was like" what!" Lol. So good vibes are coming your way if your a card getter person good luck!

    I bet they don't to be honest. I only got interviewed by the manager so its easier. I am a card person and they drilled that into me in school as well so I hope it works. Thanks!

    Please keep your card short and professionally polite. Example: last round of interviews, we received a thank you card written on recycled brown paper bag looking card stock (that was ok), but the candidate used fluorescent light green glitter gel pen to write the note (mmm...like a pre-teen would use...not professional and difficult to read as well).

    Ow. I got a very neat but plain card. It's blank inside. I'm going to short my message a little but but what is your opinion of mine?

    Gosh, I've never even heard of a "Interview thank you card." I've only had three nursing jobs that were years in duration, however, been without a job for 2 years now because of BRN diversion program. I have my first job interview next week and hoping it goes well for me. Sounds like a good idea that I show my potential future employer I'm grateful for having been interviewed
