After you have an interview, send a brief thank you to the recruiter for the
opportunity to be interviewed. This basic courtesy is often overlooked by job-seekers, but it is
one more way of keeping your name fresh in the recruiter's
mind; it shows you have self-initiative, the ability to follow up, and that you remain interested in the position.
Sample Thank You Letter
Two other kinds of letters are important: the letter of acceptance and the
letters informing other employers from whom you received offers that you have reached a decision
and accepted another firm's offer. Both kinds of letters should
be written promptly upon accepting a job offer.
Your reply to your new employer should be brief, personalized and written in
such a way as to reinforce the employer's decision to hire you. Be sure to confirm the date on which
you are to start work so there will be no misunderstanding.
