Interview thank you letters - what should you write in your job interview thank you letter?

You should write your job interview thank you letters soon after you have had your interviews. This will make you stand out from everyone else who has been interviewed, because very few people (if any) will actually bother to write a letter to say thank you.

In this letter you should personally thank the interviewer for meeting you and if possible provide some additional information about yourself, perhaps positioning yourself as an expert that can solve a particular problem that the company needs a solution to.

Sample interview thank you letter (solving an employer's problem)

In this sample interview thank you letter, we remind the interviewer that we faced a similar problem to the one that they are currently facing and offer to provide a solution. This tells the interviewer that you are someone that knows how to get the job done - which should move you to the top of the pile for the second interview or even help you secure a job offer.

Dear Mr Brown,

Re. Interview on 7 January, 2014

Thank you for interviewing me last week. I enjoyed meeting you and your team and discussing the possibility of joining your company.

I have been thinking about the problem that you are currently having with your new system. As I said to you during the interview we had a similar problem at Dairy Foods Limited. I have spoken to my colleague Tim Bruce about this and will call you next week when he has come back to me with the solution we implemented.

Yours sincerely,

Christopher Jones

Sample job interview thank you letter (implementing new systems)

For this sample interview thank you letter we have focused on the introduction of new systems, which was the major challenge that this employer is facing at the moment. We have told the employer that we are an expert in introducing new systems successfully. This should mean that they are far more interested in having a second interview and then hopefully offering you the job.

Dear Mr Brown,

Re. Interview on 7 January, 2014

It was a great pleasure to meet you last week to discuss the future needs of your department.

Your planned expansion of the department sounds like a real challenge, plus you mention that you were thinking of introducing new systems. During my time at Dairy Foods Limited, I implemented a number of similar systems to those that you are considering. I was responsible for specifying the systems, selecting suppliers, and overseeing installations and the training of company employees.

This experience in the introduction of new systems would tie in well with your specific needs. I would be very interested in the new role that you are creating and will call you next week to discuss the possibility of coming for a second interview as we discussed.

Yours sincerely,

Christopher Jones

Christopher Jones.
