A sample thank you letter that you use after an interview, as
guideline or template, will save you a lot of time when
preparing this type of correspondence. Since you’ll prepare it
before the job interview when you are not nervous and have a
clear head, the letter will really increase your chances of
making or reinforcing a good impression.
Try using this for your own uses.
I enjoyed the chance to visit with you in your office today
concerning career opportunities with ABC Company. After
discussing the future of the company I am convinced that I can
make a positive contribution, and believe our association
be mutually beneficial.
I was especially impressed with the information you provided
concerning expansion into other markets and the need for an
invigorated marketing effort. With my background in
and insurance sales and experience as a carnival promoter, I
believe I have a lot to offer.
ABC Company has an outstanding reputation in the field and is
the type of organization I wish to associate myself with. I
pride myself on being an outstanding salesman and promotional
specialist, and look forward to a chance to make a positive
contribution during this period of growth.
If I can provide any more information that would be of
assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to call me at the
phone number listed above, or email me if that is more
convenient. I look forward to hearing from you in the near
Again, thank you for your time.

Using this sample letter will save you time and lead to more
second interviews and more job offers. However, if your field
is not sales or marketing it may not be perfectly suited to
your needs. It should be easy to analyze the thank you letter
and see which sentences and paragraphs can be changed to make
it fit your needs and your profession. With modern word
processing software you can customize one version, and then
copy the file and make another letter geared towards a
different type of job completely. For instance, if there are
three or four types of jobs you would consider then creating a
thank you letter for each is probably a good idea. The same of
course is true with your cover letter and resume. Different
versions for different types of jobs, emphasizing different
aspects of your skills and experience will make you more
versatile. If, however, you are determined to pursue only one
type of job, then you obviously need only one sample letter,
one type of cover letter and one type of resume. This is a
personal choice and you are the only person who knows exactly
what job would be best suited for you and if there is more
one type you’d consider.
