What You Should Do

Before During After

Thank you note

Sending a hand-written thank you note or an email after the interview is a great way to remind the employer who you are. You can also share skills and experiences that you weren't able to discuss during the interview. Ideally, you'd want to send your thank you note within 24 to 48 hours after your interview.
