Job-Seeker Follow-Up After Job Interview and Rejection Sample Letter

7 Apple Court
Eugene, OR 97401

Ms. Gwen Nesson
Director of Programming
Xerox, Inc.
Stamford, CT 06902

Dear Ms. Neeson:

Thank you for letting me know you had decided to hire someone else for the programming position I interviewed for. I was disappointed that I did not get the position, but I very much appreciate the time and concern you and your staff took to talk with me and show me around your headquarters.

I hope you’ll keep my materials on file and consider me for future vacancies. I know yours is a growing company, so I’m convinced a position will turn up before long for which I am a perfect fit. If any other departments or regional offices have openings, I would appreciate hearing about them.

Again, Ms. Neeson, I thank you so much for all the time and thought you put into considering me for this position.
