How do you write a thank-you letter after an interview?

Thank You LetterDirect the letter to the person who interviewed you, if possible.
Keep it short. Send the letter the day of the interview or the next day. DO NOT WAIT! You want to hit them while they are still deciding who to hire!
Say something like, "I wanted to thank you for the opportunity of speaking to me regarding the __________ position. I truly feel that I am the best candidate for the job because ___________________________________.
Thanks again for your time and consideration,
Your name
Here is more advice:
  • I would always follow-up with a thank you letter when I am interested in the position. As a matter of fact, not many candidates do, and this is to your benefit. You can also use it to reemphasize why you are qualified i.e. "...after speaking to you, I feel even more confident in my ability to do the job..." Use the thank you letter as a tool that reinforces or clears up any doubts the employer might had have of you. And don't forget to actually thank them for their time. Of the skills are actually what is going to get you the job, but I've been in situations where I was one of two applicants, and my thank you letter tipped the scale my way.
  • I would always send a thank you letter, even if you are not interested in that specific position. You never know when you may be back before that person for a different position or interviewing at that company with a different person who consults the other person for an opinion on you.
  • Always send it within 48 hrs. after the interview. It should be in the same format as the cover letter. Yet, the thank you letter should be more concise than the cover letter. Make it enthusiastic and positive by all means.


Here is a template to use as main suggested paragraphs by order:
  1. Start with gratitude towards the opportunity/time the employer gave you.
  2. Continue with expressing your interest in the job.
  3. Enclose documents if required.
  4. Reiterate your thanks and hope for future interaction/interviews.

How can you write your address on a postcard?

The more common approach is to use a pen, however, pencils are also acceptable. A more unorhodox method is to use a crayon, which is frowned upon. For the actual writing of the address, you should write the street name, followed by the town name, followed by your county/state. If you are in a foreign contry, you will also need to put the country on. However, why anyone would want to send a post card to themselves is beyond me.

Where can you find a sample hardship letter to help you write to a creditor who has repossessed your vehicle?


Go to for answers to most everyday legal questions, including sample letters.

You will get more out of it if you find a book you like there and either buy it, or get it at your library. It has a great step by step manual WITH ALL FORMS (!!) to file for bankruptcy, for instance.


Here's a link to one I found:


Debtors who STAY in contact with Lenders dont usually need this. The lenders are AWARE of your payment records to them and others. Their confidence in you is built by CONTACT and exchange of info. Telling a lender of your hardship will do little if anything good AFTER they have repossessed your collateral. Money TALKS and Everyone else WALKS. Good Luck with your letters.

You could have a girlfriend help you decorate for the baby shower and then plan on what time you want the shower and prepare a menu for the guests. Generally the beverages are wine; non alcoholic punch; coffee and tea with the a vegetable; fruit and cheese platter and for dessert a cake for the baby shower and a few cookies.
