Interview Thank You Letters
Plan on writing a short thank you note after every interview. Obtain a business card to be sure that you have the correct name spelling and title. Thank the interviewer for their time and the opportunity to meet with them. If you feel capable of highlighting the areas discussed and how that meshes with your skills and experience, go ahead. The important thing is: don't let your fear of not sending the "perfect" letter stop you from sending it! An immediate, personal "thank you" is far more effective than a late-arriving, over-written, template-based recitation of skills.
And while you're jotting off that letter to the employer, write another one to any of your contacts who were nice enough to steer you in the right direction.
