Writing thank you letters
Sagen Sie "danke"!

Formal thank yous

There might be occasions when a more formal note is required, either a typed letter or a card. This could be when you are writing to a group, a company, when the occasion you are thanking for was formal or if you are not sure that an email is appropriate. In this case, try to address the person concerned as if you were giving a speech with an audience watching you - this gives an indication of the right kind of tone.

Strategic thank yous

There are some occasions where you are expected to write a thank you letter for more strategic purposes, for example, after a job interview. This serves several purposes: it takes the trouble to thank your prospective employer for interviewing you, shows your writing skills and business awareness, reiterates your skills, qualifications and interest in the position and keeps you firmly in that person's mind. Employers, after all, are just like any other people - they appreciate being acknowledged for their work.

On the other hand, it reflects the kind of employee you will be in the future. In a recent survey, 74 percent of employers said that they felt more positive towards an interview candidate who sent a written letter of thanks to him after the interview but only 3 percent of those interviewed bothered to do so.
