Executive Assistant Thank You Letter after Interview

Updated September 2, 2022
Tags: , ,

Many executive assistants make one very obvious job hunting mistake, that is, not sending a thank you letter after an interview.

With growing competition and less time on employers’ hands, a thank you letter has become the thing to do.

Why would you write a thank you letter after an executive assistant interview?

A thank you letter serves two purposes:

  1. Show the interviewer that you are a proactive and friendly individual.
  2. Present yourself as a well-qualified person once again.

Just saying thank you does not cover the length of a cover letter.

That said, mention your enthusiasm to work for the employer and meet the hiring manager in the second interview.

You need to write what you learned from the interview and how you feel that you fit into the role that the interviewer explained during the interview process.

Here is a sample interview thank you follow-up letter for an executive assistant:

Mr. Herbert Muniz
Human Resource Manager
Telsa Motors
6 Sentry Road
Oxon Hill, MD 59870

Dear Mr. Munaz:

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to interview me yesterday. I genuinely enjoyed this informative meeting.

As you mentioned during the interview, Telsa Motors is looking for an individual who not only handles an executive unit’s day-to-day operations but also provides input into projects. I mentioned that my research skills are exceptionally well-honed which is evident from the information booklet that I created for General Dynamics – a copy was handed to you during the interview. Additionally, you will discover that I am considerably adept at conserving executives’ time by handling correspondence, routing information, and collecting and analyzing essential data.

I am hopeful of a second interview with you and to eventually become part of Telsa Motors’ administrative team. Thank you once again for your time and effort in interviewing me. I anticipate joining your team soon.
