Thank You Letter Help
by - The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service

In this tight job market, with countless candidates vying for the same position, to be called in for an interview is a success not many jobseekers experience.

To make the most of the after-interview stage, always send a personalized thank you letter to the hiring authority. Not only does this indicate unusual and continued interest in the position, but it also shows follow-through and a professionalism that simply can’t be beat.

Make sure that your thank you letter uses the same heading as your resume and initial cover letter, as this maintains consistency. Keep the content brief, mentioning only the highlights of your meeting with the hiring manager. This will serve to remind that person of the skills and qualifications you can bring to the opening.

If there were some matters that you forgot to mention during the interview, such as your ability to work extra hours and take on extra responsibilities, a thank you letter is the perfect way to introduce this.

Ms. Dana Smith
Laurel Manor Care Center
1234 S. Chelton Road
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80910

Dear Dana:

I very much enjoyed having the opportunity to meet you and to tour Laurel Manor recently. I would like to thank you for taking the time to show me around and answer a few questions. Your facility impressed me as a warm, caring place for families to bring their loved ones and a pleasant working environment for employees.

I am very interested in interviewing for the Rehab Manager position you have advertised. I have had more than 12 years of experience as a speech-language pathologist and have spent the past year working in long-term care. I have worked very closely with our rehab director and have a working knowledge of OBRA, Medicare guidelines, and documentation, as well as managed care contracts, which greatly affect how and what we do in therapy!

Enclosed is a copy of my résumé, which should give you a broader picture of my clinical and supervisory experience. I look forward to hearing from you.
