Sample: Thank You Letter

The thank you letter should be mailed within two days after an interview, even if you feel there is no immediate job opportunity for you at that company. Thank the interviewer for his or her time, and refer to the topics discussed along with your ideas and qualifications. If you are certain that you would not accept an offer, ask to be kept in mind for a more appropriate position. If you interviewed with more than one person, send a thank you letter to each individual. Also send a letter to anyone who informed you about the job opportunity. Each letter should be written with an individual person in mind and make specific reference to subjects discussed. As always, provide contact information, type the letter, and double check spelling and grammar.

Chris Thompson
American Literature Monthly
55 Elm Street
Hartford, CT 06106

Dear Ms. Thompson,

I enjoyed our discussion on Tuesday regarding the American Literature Monthly's history and future along with the role of the Writing Assistant position. Your plans to expand coverage on modern literature and poetry will certainly add a new dynamic to the magazine, and thereby increase its audience. Such growth can be accelerated with innovative marketing research and materials.

As we discussed during the interview, I have exceptional skills and experience in creating marketing materials that would be valuable in this new venture. For example, my marketing decisions increased sales at Quiet Corner Book Store by 30% in two months. Combined with my knowledge of American Literature, I feel confident in fulfilling the requirements of the Writing Assistant position.

Thank you for the opportunity to meet with you. I am very interested in working for American Literature Monthly, and look forward to future discussions.
