The 3-Paragraph Rule:

The 3-Paragraph Rule Briefly thank them for their time and reiterate your interest in the position. Discuss a couple of your strengths and how the company would benefit if you were hired. Consider using bullet points to break up your text. Include any points of clarifications you might have. Include answers to questions that you weren’t able to answer during the interview, or add new info about yourself that was left out of the interview. But, remember, keep it brief.

Double Check Their Names:

Avoid Follow-up Faux Pas:

Don’t Call Them, They’ll Call You:

Don’t Call Them, They’ll Call You Usually, toward the end of an interview, hiring managers will indicate a general time for when they will contact you. If this was not addressed, be sure to ask them to give you an idea in your initial follow-up e-mail . Only call the employer if that date has passed.
