Did you walk out of an interview and realize you forgot to mention a vital fact? If you missed an opportunity to mention relevant work experience or accomplishments during an interview, don't despair. Your thank you note is the perfect place to share additional information or emphasize a point that you wish had come up naturally during the conversation, but didn't. 

You can use phrases such as "I forgot to mention" or "I wanted to follow-up on XYZ from our conversation" as an entry-point to giving follow-up details and elaborating on answers you gave during the interview.


Here is an example of a thank you note to a hiring manager that provides details about your candidacy that you wish you had mentioned at the interview.

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

I very much enjoyed speaking with you about the opportunity to work with your company in the role of sales executive.

My experience in sales and management seem to be a good match for the position you described. The organization of your sales teams is forward thinking, and I believe, one where I could contribute a great deal.

I bring with me to the position an extensive knowledge of the market, and strong communications skills. In addition, my ability to motivate my team while working within our budget will provide your company with an edge over others in the market.

My presentation skills allow me to communicate effectively with directors, as well as keep my team up to date on our progress. During my interview, I neglected to mention the series of classes I took in public speaking at the local university. It was very interesting, and provided me with the confidence I possess now while organizing and presenting a project.

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you about this position.

Best Regards,

Signature (hard copy letter)

Your Name
