Job Interview Thank You Letter Samples.

Interview Thank You Letter.  Most hiring managers agree that if candidates do not send thank you letters after the job interview, it does not reflect well on them. They don't appear thorough, detail-oriented, or even interested in the job.

Yes, writing that interview thank you letter is an annoying little chore but someone who really wants the job will make sure it gets done. And that's the right person for the job.

Onto the examples:

Dear Lisa:

Thanks for taking the time to meet with me about the accounting position the other day. The job seems like a very good match for my skills and interests. I know I would be an asset to your company.
