Dear Ms. Pomona,
It was an honor meeting you this morning. You provided me a better understanding of the position’s day-to-day duties. I am excited by the thought of working for a publication so passionate about social justice. Though you mentioned juggling deadlines will be difficult, I have seen great improvement in my ability to do both through my journalism experience and know a summer internship with you would only see greater improvement. Thank you for your time and consideration. I am still deeply interested in the position and look forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards,

Follow up can be the cherry on top of a great interview or redeem a less-than-stellar one. It is also an excellent way to continue networking relationships after an informational interview. How soon should you send a follow up message? Draft it before you go! After the interview, personalize the note. You can even send it off immediately if you have a smartphone in hand or are near a post office.
