Follow-Up Letter

Writing a thank you note after an employment interview is an important policy for students to follow. Not only is this a gesture of courtesy, but writing such a note will reaffirm your interest in working with the organization. In addition, a thank you note can be used to instill your name in the interviewer's memory and can serve to reiterate any relevant points you made during the interview. We strongly urge students to practice the policy of writing thank you notes.

A sample thank you letter is shown below.
