This thank you letter sample focuses on what a thank you letter should look like and how it should read.
Much like a cover letter introduces you, a thank you letter can often close the deal. A successful thank you letter - or thank you email - is an opportunity to leave a lasting impression and if it's done right, a good impression so please do not leave it to chance.
Let’s look at the following thank you letter sample:
By now you have already completed your resume and the cover letter. Once again copy the layout and formatting, transferring it directly to your thank you letter. Use this thank you letter sample as a guide only.
As mentioned in my explanation of a post interview thank you letter, the following points apply:
Then use the “save as” function in Microsoft Word (or similar) and give it a new name i.e., “Joe Blog’s Thank You Letter”. Keep the heading with your name and contact details, then begin the writing process.
Always add the current date and highlight the exact name of the position being offered.
Start strong using language that compels the recipient to read further. As with the cover letter and resume, use language and keywords used in the job advertisement to pepper your thank you letter. Companies will often use special scanning software to filter your documents for these keywords, weeding out applications that do not fit the role.
Thank them for the interview and highlight briefly any achievements or strengths you feel apply to the role. Mention any relevant points discussed in the interview. And remember to express your keen desire to join their company, closing with a polite call to action.
It’s okay to sell yourself—just don’t go overboard.
