After an Interview

Dear Ms. Smith, 

Thank you for providing me the opportunity to interview with you for the Web Designer Summer Intern position at Smith Macro.

As I mentioned during the interview, I gained valuable industry experience last summer during my internship at Excellence Corporation. I believe my experience in leadership and quality assurance would make me a great addition to Smith Marco & Co.  I enjoyed learning about the work culture at Smith Macro & Co., and I especially liked that employees at your company are known for their volunteer efforts in the community. 

Thank you again for your time and consideration. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at (xxx)xxx-xxxx or [email protected].  

Sincerely, Anne Arbor

After a Networking Event

Dear Ms. Smith, 

Thank you for taking time to speak with me yesterday about the production engineer position with Cyberdyne Systems. I enjoyed meeting you and learning more about the role and organization.

After speaking with you, I am confident that my skills and past experiences would make me a good match for the opportunity. As we discussed, I believe my ability to quickly learn how to operate unfamiliar software as well as my past design experience would be great assets in estimating costs and monitoring production.

I am enthusiastic about the exciting opportunity to join your company. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (xxx)xxx-xxxx or [email protected]. if you have any questions or concerns, or need any further information.

Sincerely, Anne Arbor
