Use this short thank you email template to thank your applicants for coming to an interview.

Sending a short thank you email after an interview is a good way to continue a positive relationship with applicants. In your email, include the date and time of the interview as well as the job title and company name.

The applicant may be interviewing for multiple positions in their job search and you want to be sure they remember who is reaching out to thank them. Personalize the thank you email with a detail about the applicant’s qualifications that was discussed at the interview.

If you can, inform the applicant about what to expect in the hiring process. If you are still interviewing applicants, let them know. If you are going to be reviewing applications and making a decision soon, let the candidate know when they should expect to hear from you.
