Saying “Thank you” and Following Up

Be sure to always 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!
