Chapter III. The Successful Interview
Sample Follow-up Letter
Follow-up after an employment interview can be very important in getting a job. Very few people follow up their interviews with written correspondence. A thank you letter or note of appreciation can be very effective in reinforcing your strengths and skills for the particular position. Always refer to the position discussed. Below is a sample of a follow-up letter.

Laura re-emphasizes how she sees herself fitting in. She also projects a very confident and mature attitude.

Dear Mr. Peterson,

I would like to thank you for making the time to meet with me today. I was delighted to be able to share with you my vision for how I would fit into the team at Jackson Industries.

We did discuss that you had several other candidates to interview. In addition, we agreed that I could call you next week to see where you are in the hiring process.

I feel confident I could make a significant contribution to Jackson Industries. I look forward to speaking with you again next week. Please feel free to call me if any additional questions come to mind regarding my qualifications.
