In the competitive world that we live in, many people apply for the same
job openings and hope that they have made a positive lasting impression
with their interviewer. It was fortunate enough that the person was able
to land an interview and get a chance to obtain the position. What some
people tend to overlook after an interview is the follow up.

Obtaining an interview from an employer is big. It means that an employer
has screened through a pile of applications and resumes and have selected
possible candidates that he/she feels is qualified enough to handle the
tasks involved in the job. But it does not end after the interview. A
good common practice is to follow up with the company. One way to follow
up is to send a Thank You letter to your interviewer. Thank the
interviewer for giving you a chance to interview with him/her and for
taking time out of his/her day to meet with you. Let him/her know what
you felt about the interview and that you will be following up with
him/her within a few days to check on the status of the position whether
or not it has been filled.

It is good practice to keep the Thank You letter brief and straight to
the point. Mention within the letter the highlights of the interview and
any possible skills, qualifications, or availability that you forgot to
mention during the interview. By doing this, the hiring manager will be
able to recall who you are and what you had to say. Remember, a good
resume leads to an interview, but a simple Thank You letter and follow up
may just be the professionalism the hiring manager is looking for that
can land you the job.
