Thank You Letter
- 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.

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.
