Thank-You Letter

There are three basic types of follow-up or thank-you letters. While each of these letters is written after the interview, each has a different purpose and its use must be selected accordingly.

The Recall (used to remid the employer of the interview and the qualifications you possess which are especially significant).
The Accent (to emphasize a specific point which was well received by the employer during the interview).
The Afterthought (to supply important information which was left out of the interview).
