After a job interview, take the time to relay your thanks to everyone you met with. In addition to thanking the hiring manager, spend a few minutes sending a thank you email or note to others you met with at the company.

Here's an example of an interview thank you note to send to employees you would be managing if you were hired for the job. Also, see below for a sample of a thank you note to send to a prospective co-worker.

Take the time to send individual messages to each person if you met with several members of the team. The basic message can be the same, just vary it enough so you aren't sending the exact same message to each person you met with.

Depending on timing, you could send it as an email message or a handwritten thank you note. If you expect a decision to be made fast, send an email. Otherwise, a mailed note can make a good impression.
