Sample Thank You Note After a Poor Job Interview

<< Index of Thank You Letters

Wyatt left his job interview for a customer service representative with the feeling it hadn't gone all that well. He was nervous and didn't answer some of the job interview questions well.

After having some time to reflect, he went to his computer and composed the following email, which he sent to his interviewer. Although this is a thank-you email, it is also an attempt at amending his responses during the interview. Hopefully this will give him a second chance at the job.

Here's the thank-you email Wyatt sent:

Subject: Thank you for the customer service job interview, Wyatt Brighton

Dear Mr. Ralston,
Our meeting last Monday left me feeling enthusiastic about the possibility of working for you as a customer service representative. Thank you for so carefully explaining the position’s requirements.

I believe I could have been a little less modest and told you a very important reason for my success in customer service: I am an attentive listener. I have always found my patience to be a valuable asset, especially when dealing with customers who have a complaint.

At Fraternal Clothiers, I achieved an exceptionally high rate of customer satisfaction, simply because I allowed clients to vent; then I was able to offer them—and have them accept—very simple solutions.

I would very much like to use this talent to help cut the losses you mentioned at Brand New for Men.

I will call your office in a few days for news of your selection. Thanks again!
Sincerely yours,
Wyatt Brighton
