Here’s an example of a great “Thank You” email.
Good Morning Tom,
Thank you very much for your time yesterday afternoon during my interview. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Accounts Assistant role, and hearing you speak about your experience working on the team. From what you described, I feel that the fast-paced nature of the work is exactly what I am looking for, and I trust in my ability to learn quickly and jump into the role successfully. I especially would enjoy further developing my skills working in different Accounting software, and it would be exciting to learn Oracle with your team.
Please let me know if there is anything additional you need from me at this time. I look forward to hearing from you, and again, thank you very much for your time and for the opportunity to interview.
Overall, a “Thank You” email will set you apart from the other candidates, and will demonstrate that you are serious about the role. It doesn’t take much time to put together – and this simple little act could make be the difference between receiving an offer, or a rejection.
