Good business practice suggest that after an interview with potential employer, a candidate is supposed to send post interview thank you letter. In this letter a candidate is supposed to express his gratitude to the employer for investing time in consideration of his application, and additional time to conduct an interview with the candidate. Post interview thank you letter could be send both as a thank you email note, and as a formal letter. The structure should follow the usual formal business letter, with a trivial personal note at the end. Post interview thank you letter should follow the interview, and preferably is to be send by the end of the day when interview is held, which will help the employer to remember you better, and potentially increase you employability for the post for which you have been considered.
In the text below you can see a sample of formal post interview thank you letter, which you can use and adjust according to your needs.
