Follow Up After Interview Email

The main purpose for writing a follow up email after an interview is to remind the employer that you are still waiting for his or her response. This email will give a good impression to the employer regarding your professionalism and the will to prosper in the organisation after getting employment.

You need to be very courteous in the opening paragraph by thanking the employer for conducting your interview and taking out his or her precious time for you. The use of the word ‘thank you’ is recommended here which will actually set the tone of your follow-up email.

In the second paragraph, you need to tell the employer how impressed you were by the professional panel which conducted your interview and just why you now believe that this organisation would be perfect for a professional person like yourself.

Do not be demanding at any time in the email by forcing the employer to take a final decision regarding your hiring. It is important that you keep in mind that if you force the employer into hiring you, he or she might decide otherwise.

In the last paragraph you need to provide your contact number and let the employer know that you are always available in case he or she needs to acquire more information from you. End the email with pleasantries.
