How you perform in a job interview definitely plays a part in determining if you’ll get the job or not; however, many people forget to send a formal thank you after the interview. Think of it like this, you go on a date, the conversation is flowing, and the food and drinks are good. At the end of the night you’re really looking forward to seeing that person again...only thing is,they never messaged you after the date. Pretty disappointing right?
Sending a thank you email allows you to express your gratitude and let your interviewer know you enjoyed meeting with them. In addition to that, you have the opportunity to reiterate your strengths and clarify anything from the interview.
It’s also a good idea to restate your interest in the position, just be sure not to come off as too desperate. The key is to remain confident in what you can bring to the table. Follow those steps and you’ll have a better chance of landing a second date!
