Always Follow Up Aviation Job Interviews, Always

Always follow up an interview. Sometimes you may have not been the applicant they would choose first, but your ambition and determination of a follow up telephone call, thank you note, or even a surprise visit could make them see you in a whole new light!

Always Follow Up Aviation Job Interviews, Always

Always follow up an interview. Sometimes you may have not been the applicant they would choose first, but your ambition and determination of a follow up telephone call, thank you note, or even a surprise visit could make them see you in a whole new light!

During your conversation, ask questions that follow up with a previous conversation, proving your interest, and good memory.

Remember

"Familiar Faces Attract Attention"

Thank you follow up letters

Thank you letters are critical to your job search success, and interviews are not the only occasions to send thank you and follow up letters. If you've ever experienced helping or doing something for someone, and not receiving a thank you, you understand how employers view this lack of courtesy on the part of job seekers. They may also gauge your motivation on the level of your follow up activities.

On this page:

When to write thank you letters:

A thank you letter should be written after:

  • An interview; (See interview follow up / thank you letters)
  • A contact is helpful to you in a telephone conversation or email;
  • Someone provides / sends information to you at your request;
  • A contact was particularly helpful to you at a career fair;
  • You visit a contact at their work site; and
  • Any other contact for which you want to express thanks and develop a good relationship
Hard copy, handwritten or email:

Thank you letters can be hard copy typed, handwritten or emailed. Hard copy are most formal and are always appropriate after an interview. Handwritten are more personal, and can be appropriate for brief notes to a variety of individuals you may have met during on on-site interview or who may have helped you in other ways. Email is appropriate when that has been your means of contact with the person you want to thank, or if your contact has expressed a preference for email, or if you want to send a quick thank you to be followed up by hard copy.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

Thank you for talking with me on Wednesday in response to my inquiry about the open [Job Title] position in the [City name] area. After speaking with you and some of the Career Counselors at Avjobs, I think I am much better prepared to pursue this opportunity.

Thank you for inviting me to visit your office. I will be in [City] during the week of [Date Range], so I will call your office two weeks prior to see if it would be convenient to schedule a visit.
