Using English for business purposes can be challenging. Typically speaking business English is more formal than the language used in everyday situations. However you need to consider not only the use of the language, but also the culture when using English in a business environment.

A common business tradition in North America is to send a potential employer a “Thank You” card after an interview. This is normally done one or two days following the actual interview.

The purpose of the “Thank You” card is to show your appreciation for the interviewer’s time, and also to serve as a reminder of you. This is considered to be a polite way to indicate your interest in the job and the company that you have applied to.
