How to Word a Thank You Response for a Job Interview

Designing Your Business Communication

If you have recently had a job interview, it’s important to send a thank you note to the person who interviewed you. This sends the message that you are appreciative of the opportunity to work for the company and that you have integrity.

A thank you response for a job interview can be short and to the point. There is no need to be wordy and write a lengthy thank you response for your job interview. Here is one sample job interview thank you note to give you an idea of how they should be composed:

Interviewer name

Interviewer title

Name of company

Address of company including city, state, zip code

Greeting with a comma (Dear Mr./Ms. Smith,)
