Follow-Up Letters

After an interview or job fair, a thank you letter is appropriate. In fact, a follow-up letter is appropriate after any contact with an employer (even a rejection letter!). It is not only common courtesy, but follow-up letters are worthwhile for several reasons:

  • If the employer has suggested that you initiate any further contact or provide further information.
  • If the employer seemed really interested in you, and gave you a date/time period when you would be contacted.
  • Sending a thank you will remind the employers who you are, and what you have to offer. On the contrary, neglecting to send a thank you letter may actually lead the employers to overlook you.
