Interview Answer :
Suggested format for Follow-up Letter :
First paragraph : Express your appreciation for the interview, for the opportunity to discuss the position and how keen you are on the job.
Second paragraph : Personalise it! For example, mention something that you learnt that enhanced your interest in the position or a skill or experience that you were not able to discuss during your contact. Or, mention a person who was especially helpful and tell your reader why.
Third paragraph : Reaffirm your interest in the position. Tell the employer that you look forward to hearing from them.
Your letter should be sent before the decision is made. Otherwise it will have very little impact.
You must remember that a well-written and well-presented thank-you note is a courtesy that can set you apart from other candidatesand enhance your image with the organisation.
Sample of Follow-up Letter :
15 October 20XX
Mr. John Mathew,
Tea Hind Bank,
Dear Mr. Mathew,
It was a pleasure meeting with you on 3 October 20XX in connection with the position of Managing Director.
I am confident that I will be able to, should I be offered the position, make the bank a significant player in both the East and North of India. My focus would also be on opening new branches and developing new financial products that are cost-effective and competitive.
I look forward to hearing from you.
You must remember that the best-qualified person does not necessarily get the job. It is one who presents himself / herself confidently, speaks well and sells himself / herself at the interview. And this can be despite the fact that others may have better qualifications and more experience. The person who makes the interviewer believes that he has that extra magic and that the company cannot afford not to have him / her, is the one who will get the job. The extra magic is really preparation. Successful persons will tell you that to succeed there is no substitute for hard work. Similarly for a good interview there is no substitute for preparation.
Are you really interested in working for an employer or would you rather set up a business on your own? It is always a good idea to seek advice from career counsellors or an occupational psychologist to find out what is best for you.
