Sample Interview Thank You Letters

Dear Mr. Bugate:

     I appreciate the time you took out of your demanding schedule yesterday to meet with me and introduce me to the rest of your staff. Habitat for Humanity of Michigan has a challenging mission in these tough economic times.

     I believe that your newly created position of Gift-in-Kind Manager will provide a more dependable source of donations for Habitat affiliates throughout the state. As we discussed in my interview, I further envision the Gift-in-Kind Manager as a business resource for affiliate directors. I am confident that my retail and non-profit experience, both in procurement and marketing, give me the leadership skills necessary to attain this ambitious goal.

     If you have any additional questions for me, please don’t hesitate to call me on my cell, 555-7845.



Dear Ms. McGraff:

     Thank you for taking time this afternoon to interview me for the position of customer service representative at your new call center. I can only imagine the demands such an expansion requires of you, yet you gave me your full attention.

     I know it will take some time for me to get up to speed on the services at Keep it Green Appliances, but working in customer service at Meijer’s during my college summers taught me the value of keeping a cool head while addressing customer concerns. I had the highest customer-satisfaction rating in my department; I can bring that same satisfaction to your customers.

     Thanks again for your consideration.
