Preparing for Work
Saying “Thanks” After an Interview
A thank-you email is a positive, non-intrusive way to stay on an employer’s radar. It might be the key to getting a job offer or making the employer reconsider your candidature, giving you a chance for a second interview if it didn’t go so well the first time.
A thank-you email also provides an opportunity to confirm your interest in the job you interviewed for as well as clarify any of your answers from the interview. You can also use it to mention any additional skills and abilities related to the job.
