A no-response letter after an interview is ideal if you have not heard back from a company or you have another offer on the table. Sending a letter to your previous interviewed companies, asking for a status in their interview process will assist you in making that career decision move. The no-response letter is simple to construct and effective.

Use the standard components of a business letter: date, mailing address of the company/interviewer, salutation, body of letter, salutation and your signature.

State the position you applied for, the date of your interview and some key points you mentioned during the interview.

Gently remind the interviewer of the deadline you were given and ask if the deadline has changed.

Inform the interviewer that you have other opportunities available to you and need to make a decision. Ask the interviewer to contact you as soon as a decision is made.


Be mindful of your tone in the letter.

Keep your letter short and to the point.
