Crafting your Thank You message
Thank You Message Example
I just wanted to thank you for inviting me to your office today. It was great to hear about ABC’s goals to streamline your software, the company’s emphasis on human-centred UX design, and how you see the engineering department playing a role in these initiatives. ABC seems like a wonderful place to work in! I really admire the mission that drives your business, and look forward to the opportunity to work with your team to implement some of the ideas I mentioned around redesigning the homepage.
Please let me know if there’s anything else you need from me to move the process forward.
