Forgot to mention something important during an interview? How to fix this.

Have you ever attended an interview and realised later on that you forgot to mention something important that may help your application, or you felt you gave a poor response to a question?  The “Thank You” email allows you an opportunity to explain something you said in your interview or introduce new information you forgot to share.  Consider the “Thank You letter” your closing argument for why you should be chosen. Below is a sample “Thank You” email to address this.
