Interviewing Tips/A question about thank-you email


May I ask this question?

After the interview, you are supposed to send a thank-you letter to the interviewers. Iíve just got a telephone interview as we live in different countries. So I think a thank-you email should be fine.
However, in the email subject, what should I write?

Traditionally, a handwritten note when possible has more leverage than an email.  An email can be deleted, overlooked, or pushed though the SPAM filters.  A delivered note is tangible and creates a sense that you took time to craft and send the note of thanks.  

It is your choice; however, a handwritten note when possible is advised, especially if you want the opportunity.

In the subject you may simply put, Thank you-(Insert Your Name), this will draw attention to your name and also indicates the content.  Denise Anne Taylor
