Creative Ways I Say 'Thank You' After An Interview Or Meeting

Workin' Girl

You've nailed your job interview and now you want to put the icing on the cake with a thank you note. Or maybe one of your linked connections helped get you a contact at their company and you want to show your gratitude. Simply taking the time out to thank someone for making time for you goes a long way. It's a quick gesture that's often overlooked by job-seekers. As a recent graduate and job seeker I'm always looking for creative ways to thank mentors, connections and of course interviewers.

Here's a few creative and easy ways to make a lasting impression even after your interview or meeting:

1. An E-Card:

I sent an E-thank you not to my boss after she interviewed me for my current position. I've been an intern long enough to know that handwritten notes addressed to the boss rarely ever reach their desk. It's their interns who sort through their mail. So to avoid your handwritten, mailed thank you letter getting chucked, try an e card. PaperlessPost had great, high quality ones for FREE.99. You can customize many of the designs and best of all, PaperlessPost notifies you when your E-card has been opened by the recipient. Wonder no more!

2. Flowers

This may not be sufficient for an interview, but I love sending a chic bouquet of flowers with a thank you note attached following a beneficial meeting or conversation with someone that may lead to a future job opportunity. I send bouquets to my mentors after a really helpful meeting or to connections that have helped me navigate through my job search. Let the people who have helped you and inspired you know that you appreciate them.

3. A Personalized Card

Did your interviewer mention their a die hard UNC fan? Why not send them a Tar Heel thank you note? Sending a thank you note with a personal touch, as opposed to generic store bought note, shows that you actually listened to them enough to remember something about them. In my experience, most of my professional connections first came about after casual conversation. A common factor: college, a hobby, a favorite team or singer is something that you could highlight when connecting with someone. Play this up when saying thank you.

What are some creative ways that you thank those in your network?
