- Address any concerns or questions: If you have any concerns or questions that were not addressed during the interview, this is a good opportunity to bring them up. This shows that you are thoughtful and proactive in your approach to the job.
- Close with a call to action: Close your email with a call to action, such as a request for a follow-up meeting or an update on the hiring process. This shows that you are eager to move forward and remain engaged in the process.
