Whether you graduated from school with all of your tuition covered by an academic scholarship or you took out student loans, you will most likely need to find a job soon after classes are over. This means that you’ll be on the job hunt right when you graduate (if not before).
Let’s say you land an interview for a dream job. You do all you can to prepare for it – you study up on the company and the position and you do practice interviews.

The day of your interview, you’re nervous but prepared. You go in looking as polished and professional as possible….and YOU NAIL IT. You’re charming, you answer questions thoughtfully, and you ask your own great questions of your interviewers.
You will obviously get a job offer, right? Right?
What you do after an interview matters a lot. Sending thank you notes to everyone you interviewed with can make a huge difference in the way potential employers view you. Showing them that you value their time and consideration with a thank you is crucial, and demonstrates your respect for the interviewer, the position, and the company.
MPOWER Pro-tip 2
Don’t know what to write? Forbes has some great examples of interview thank you notes to follow.
Make sure to send a thank you email within 24 to 72 hours of the interview and to personalize it to the discussion you had with each interviewer as well as to your relevant skills. Your potential employer may have interviewed several candidates, and including specific details reminds them why you’re the best person for the job.
