Sample Thank You Letter Text

(follow the same formatting on a cover letter):

Dear..,
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.

Sincerely,

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.

Additional Follow-Up:

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.
