When an interview is over, it is appropriate to send a thank you note or letter to the person(s) who interviewed you. This shows some form of courtesy.
A thank you note provides an opportunity for you to show forth your expectations and positive anticipations in correlation with your abilities that makes you the right candidate for that position.

After the interview, be sure to get a business card or contacts from everyone involved in the interview or orientation processes so you can send a thank you note. Depending on the level of formality between you and the interviewers you can send a thank you note by e-mail or postal mail.
Write or type your note on a blank card or a high quality paper.

In your thank you note, thank each interviewer for the time spent meeting and speaking with them. Include at least one positive unique experience that occurred during the interview and then end with short conclusion.
