A resume may get you an interview, but a strong interview can get you an offer. Use the resources on this page to learn about interview etiquette and how to present yourself as a strong candidate.

Saying “thank you” and following up

Send a “Thank You” email within 24 hours of your interview to each person you interviewed with.  Show appreciation, reiterate your interest, personalize the note by writing about one or two things you learned, and remind them of your qualifications.  Remember to proofread before sending!
