Need Interviews? A Sample Letter For Following-Up Your Resume Submission - Articles Surfing

A sample letter to use as a guide when preparing your follow up letters can assist your job search, save you time, and make you look very professional. Take a look at the following, and use it as a guide when preparing your own follow up letters.

SAMPLE FOLLOW UP LETTER

Date
Decision Maker, Position
Company
Address
City
State, Zip code

Dear (use name),

I wanted to touch base with you concerning my recent application with your company. Knowing you are busy I've enclosed another copy of my resume for your review.

My interests and work experience are in the areas of sales and sales management. Having worked with Xyz company for the past seven years as a sales representative, I have strong experience and believe I could be a strong asset to your organization.

I would appreciate the opportunity to visit with you in person, and will call next week to check on your availability.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

John Doe

Resume enclosed

Use this sample as a template, and change the relevant portions of it to fit your own skills, experience and interests. Customize it, and send it out a week or ten days after you send out every resume, to each company that you've applied to. Following up is a skill that many people fail to learn, and it can make all the difference in getting an interview. Experiment with it, put sentences and paragraphs into your own words, and make it read like you wrote it. Don't get the impression that the letter must be used 'as is' without changes. It is a sample, or a template if you will, and is designed to be a guide for you to follow, not the end result itself.

This sample letter can also be used when applying online through the various job bank services on the Internet. They all have a place for a resume and cover letter. A week or ten days after applying, it doesn't hurt to apply again, using the sample as a guide in the space normally reserved for a cover letter for your second application.

In addition to the follow up letter, your personal marketing toolbox should include other essentials. These should include a well written resume, plenty of copies on good quality paper, a sample cover letter you can use for customization, copies of your reference sheet, a salary history, plain paper photo copies of letters of recommendation from previous employers, a sample thank you letter to use after the interview, and a job acceptance letter template you can use when you get hired. You'll also need to practice your interviewing skills. So you can see that while the follow up letter is valuable, there are many other things you need to have when job hunting if you want to look like the professional that you are.
