Sample Thank You Letter Text
(follow the same formatting on a cover letter):
It was a pleasure meeting with you to speak about the Marketing Representative position at ABC Company. I believe my skills and personality match well with what your organization is looking for in an employee.
A Marketing Representative needs to be creative, organized, and enthusiastic, which are all characteristics I obtained through my internship at XYZ Marketing. In addition to my internship, my Bachelor of Arts in Politics with a Concentration in Marketing has given me knowledge to be successful in the industry.
If given the opportunity, I believe I can make valuable contributions at ABC. I appreciate the time you took to interview me, and I look forward to hearing from you about the position.
Reaffirm Your Interest:
Be specific – explain why you are the right person for the job relating your skills, interests, experience, and knowledge of the job, employer, and industry.
Take no further action until at least one week beyond the date when they said they would contact you. At that time, a phone call to see if a decision has been made is appropriate.
