Always Send a Thank You Note

 

Sending a thoughtful thank-you letter to a hiring manager, after an interview, costs no more than a little time and the price of a stamp. And sending a well-worded e-mail costs even less. To help you with this important task, we’ve included some sample letters, below:

COMPANY CONTACT NAME
