Is it appropriate to send a thank-you letter for a phone interview?
The Career Doctor responds:
Yes yes yes.
Anytime you have any contact with a prospective employer if you want to
stand out from the crowd you should always send a thank-you letter or note.
Always. Do so after a phone interview job fair interview panel interview on-campus interview and even after a chance encounter at a professional
meeting. Any time any situation.
A thank-you letter can never hurt your chances (unless it is just poorly written)
and can give you just enough of a boost to push you toward the front of the line.
All you need to do is thank the person for their time — and express your interest
in the organization and your enthusiasm for the position you are seeking.
