Thank you note.

Posted

Please I need ideas about what to write in a thank you card for an interview that I had last week. Thanks, I will appreciate. I haven't heard from them yet. Should I call HR or just send the thank you card? Thanks again.

Ummm....you should have filled out the Thank You card immediately after the interview, and mailed it the same day.....NOT a week later. Send the card, expressing your interest/excitement in the position, and also thanking the interviewers for taking the time to meet with you.

Personally, I always send a thank you card when I have an interview, pretty much as soon as I am done with interviewing (I figure it will take a few days to get through the mail). Send the thank you card (independent of your asking about the job). Call a few days after that.

I would just send the thank you card. I sent the ty card to the DON who did my interview. I pretty much said "Dear Ms. ______, I really appreciate you taking the time to meet with me and discuss my possible employment at your agency. I am really excited about the prospect of working here and believe that I would be a great asset to the company." I went on to point out in a nice way WHY I would be a good asset to the company and said, "I look forward to hearing from you." I got the job ;). Good luck!

Sure, the thank you card probably shoudl have gone out ASAP, but just go ahead and write a brief and sincere note such as 1uvakindmom suggested. It may be late, but it still shows good manners.
