A well-constructed thank you email to a recruiter can help you land a job. Imagine there are 3 to 4 great candidates after an interview and the recruiter is in a dilemma and your thank you email pops up, trust me it will surely influence his or her decision.
I have gotten two job offers just because I sent out an email thanking them after the interview. Your aim of sending such mail is to:
1. Appreciate them for their time and consideration.
2. Shade more light on something that was discussed during the interview and also use the opportunity to highlight some things you forgot or didn’t mention. You can also use the mail to correct an impression about you or about something that went a bit wrong during the interview.
3. Showcase keen interest and desire to join and great value. Just ensure you don’t sound desperate and boastful.
Here is an example:
