Second Interview Thank You Letters
It is an unsaid rule that you must drop in a "Thank You" letter after each interview. Second interviews are no exceptions to that.
An invitation for second interview means that you have successfully impressed the root level hiring managers. Since the company wants to see you as their future employee, they have asked you to appear for the second round as well. While appearing for this interview, pay minute attention to even the smallest area to help you frame a unique Thank You letter, later.
A thank you letter is also called as a follow up letter. While drafting a follow up letter, ensure a few things.
- A thank you letter can be a handwritten one or typed or can be sent through an email. A handwritten letter adds a personal touch. Although make sure it is legible and free of spelling and grammatical errors
- Concise, clear and short letters are much appreciated
- It should express gratitude for the opportunity given by the interviewers
- It should underline the positive factors and main points of the interview
- Inject your interest in the company and the position offered
- The letter should reflect your sincerity
A thank you letter after the second interview should essentially cover these points. You may engage in additional points as per requirement.
However, it is to be noted that thank you letters should not exceed more than 150 to 200 words.
Here is a format that you should follow while writing a follow up letter:
Company Name _______________
Company Address _____________
Main Body ____________________________________________________
