A follow up letter helps you to keep track of current happenings. The follow up letter after an interview helps you to convey that you are still interested in the position in the company, you will contribute in the growth of the company with help of your skills and expertise and you are eager to get some news from the company.
You can write a follow up letter if you don't get any news from the company as discussed in the interview. You have to be prompt in sending this sort of letter. The letter has to clearly state the purpose of writing; you need to specify the date of interview and the position interviewed for. This type of letter is used as a reminder call to employers, clients and customers.
A Sample Follow up Letter
November 18, 2009
Dear Ms. Scott:
I'm writing this letter to let you know that I am very much interested in the position of a Sub Editor in your esteemed Publishing house. We had discussed my interests and goals in an interview that we had on November 08, 2009.
As I had mentioned in our meeting that I have been in the field of editing for last three years, my expertise will help you in the launch of a new magazine "New Era". I have handled the editing responsibilities of two magazines till date. I have good knowledge of the reader's requirements and know how to create a name for the magazine in the market. The brand image of your publishing house and my experience together will help the magazine to enter successfully in the market. The target audience of the magazine is the youth. This class of society is unexplored by the magazine world. That will help us in making inroads in the young generation.
I have studied the market very well. I'm ready to use my skills for your organization. Contact me on my phone number or email address for further discussion about this position. Waiting for a positive reply.
