Sample Thank-You Notes

Whether you type or handwrite your thank-you note depends on how much information you're including. If it's a simple thank-you, then a handwritten note on plain businesslike stationery is fine (avoid colored bunnies or flowers). If you want to write a more detailed letter making several points about your qualifications, type and print it on plain white typing paper or resume-quality bond.

Simple Thank-You:

Dear Ms. Johanssen:

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me yesterday to discuss the accounting position with SooperToober.com. I especially appreciated your insight into common career paths within the accounting department.

Following our conversation, I am even more certain that I can make a valuable contribution to the accounting team at SooperToober.com. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,
Linda Jones

More Detailed Thank-You Letter:

Dear Ms. Johannsen:

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me yesterday to discuss the accounting position with SooperToober.com. I especially appreciated your insight into the additional skills necessary for an employee in the accounting department in order to perform her job successfully.

I have enclosed a copy of a two-page report I wrote for my financial analysis class at Dodkins College. In light of your emphasis on communication skills, I wanted to demonstrate that in addition to being able to perform all the financial elements required of the accounting position, I am also an excellent writer.

I am even more certain after our conversation that I can make a valuable contribution to the accounting team at SooperToober.com. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,
Linda Jones
