Getting through an interview process can be a grueling experience. After submitting your resume, speaking with recruiters, and attending interview sessions with multiple departments you might have invested weeks of time and effort getting through the process. 

The good news is there is a simple solution to help you stand out from the rest of the competition after all these formalities: Sending a personalized thank you message to the person who interviewed you. However, merely 24% of HR managers ever receive a thank you message, according reports. This creates an opportunity to create a slight advantage as the applicant. 

However, we understand that finding the right words in this situation can be quite difficult. You want to sound professional, authentic, but not needy in a followup message. Scroll down now to see more than 40 post interview sample thank you message emails. Simply choose the sample that matches your writing style, copy and paste your favorite into an email and hit send.

Pro tip: I suggest personalizing these messages before hitting send to increase the power of this tactic.
