Thank You Letters

Thank you letters should be sent via email or hardcopy as soon as possible following each interview. During the Fall OCI season, a thank you letter is not typically expected after a screening interview, but students should consider sending one to their top-choice employers. Thank you letters, like cover letters and resumes, must be error free. If you interviewed with more than one person, it is best to send each one an individual thank you letter. Try to make each letter distinctive by mentioning one thing specific to that interview(er) and reiterate your interest in that position. If for some reason you are unable to send a letter to each interviewer, you may send one letter to the primary interviewer and ask that s/he share your thanks with the others.
