Didn’t Get Job, What Should Go in Thank-You Note?

0

Dear Experts,

I had an interview one day and the other candidates were all interviewed within 2 days, so I found out I didn’t get the job right before I was going to write the thank you note. Are there any particular details that should be included in a thank you note/follow up even after you’ve been rejected?

Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:
