Sample Job-Seeker Thank You Letter that Mentions Job Interview Afterthoughts

Sometimes job-seekers forget to mention a key piece of information they wanted to stress to prospective employers in a job interview. One way making certain the employer is aware of this information is to include it in your post-interview thank-you letter.

Dear Ms. Bonwit:

I’d like to thank you for the time you spent talking with me about the marketing-research analyst position you have open at Razzle magazine. I am very excited about this position and convinced that my marketing training equips me more than adequately for the job.

I meant to mention during the interview that last summer I attended a three-week intensive seminar on SPSS, the foremost marketing-research software package. I know the job description mentions the ability to use SPSS, and I wanted to make sure you knew that I am extremely well-versed in the use of this software. Please contact me if you have any questions about my ability with this program or about any of my other qualifications.

As you know, my work-study position in the institutional research office here at Rutgers provided an excellent background for marketing- research work.

I look forward to hearing from you soon about the position, and I again thank you for meeting with me.
