Sample Formal Letter or Email Asking for Interview Result

Once you attend the interview as scheduled with the recruiting company, the next step quite obviously, is to know the outcome of the interview i.e. whether you have been selected or not.

sample letter for inquiring about interview result
In the interview meet, the HR officer will probably inform you about an approximate date by which you can expect the interview result. On or after this date, if the interview outcome is not conveyed to you, then you may write a follow up email or a letter to the company, enquiring about the interview result.

One of the greatest things about qualifying for a job is to stay positive at the interview and at all times after the interview too. So, do not write negatively anywhere in the follow up letter or email or over the phone neither give any ultimatums in it.
