Thank You Follow Up Letter- Is It Necessary?

Now that you have succeeded with a phone interview/email interview/ or face to face are you wondering if you should send a thank you letter? YES...YES..YES....

The number one reason that you should send one immediately within 48 hours of the interview is because it BRINGS YOUR NAME and qualifications back in the frontline of the hiring manager!
Writing a thank you follow up letter also gives you an opportunity to clarify anything that you discussed and highlight any useful detals that you may have forgotten to mention.
It shows that YOU WANT THE JOB and it also puts you one step ahead of anyone who does not send one.

Sending a thank you letters shows initiative, follow through and professionalism- everything a hiring manager and organization want to see!
