Work experience Thank you letter
When you have completed your work experience placement, it will be useful to reflect on the experience and an important part of that is writing a thank you letter (or email). This will help you to think about the positive things you got out of the experience.
You will have thanked your employer on the last day of your work experience placement, but a follow up letter or email is also important, as it is a more formal way to demonstrate you are grateful for the time the employer has put into arranging your placement.
Since the letter is written after the placement, it is also a chance to show you have reflected on the experiences you had and what you have learnt.
