DRAFTING THE POST-INTERVIEW
Start by thanking the recruiter; you will be demonstrating your professionalism and courtesy. Use a traditional formula to do this and re-state the date of the interview and the job title, for example: "I wanted to thank you for your welcome and for your time at my interview on (...) for the job of (...)."
Then reiterate your interest in the job, citing the 2/3 elements of the job you find the most motivating and significant. This means showing that you have understood the job offered by illustrating your capacity for analysis and summary. For example, write: “Our discussion strengthened my interest in the job of (...). This is a job with diverse tasks (...) which will then help me develop towards (...), which fits in very well with my career plans. “
If the job in the end is not of interest to you, this is also the time to say so: you will make a good impression with the recruiter you saw, and he may think about you for other jobs. You may be able to provide additional information or emphasise a key skill: “Thanks to my x years’ experience as a (...), I learnt (...), qualities which I consider vital for success”.
To conclude, you can ask the recruiter for feedback on your application: this demonstrates your constructive and humble attitude. For example, you could write “I would be very happy to hear your opinion of this interview, and any tips you may have, so that I can improve”.
