You just had a successful interview where you were able to display your knowledge, skills, and abilities in an awe-inspiring fashion to the interview panel. You confidently built solid rapport, had a great discussion about the position and talked about how you align with the role and the company. You asked great thought-provoking questions based on the information provided to you during the interview. As the interview concluded, you summarized why you’re the best candidate for the position. All signs point to greatness, but there are likely other candidates in consideration feeling the exact same way. So, what can you do to help separate yourself after the interview?
Send a thank you note in the mail – yes, the USPS mail. Send a thank you note to everyone who was part of the interview. If you interviewed with the hiring manager, another person on the team and a recruiter – then send 3 thank you cards.
Send a thank you email – If electronic correspondence is more your style, send a thank you email to everyone that you spoke with during the interview. Try to send the email on the same day as the interview.
