For More Attention
Content provided by ResumeEdge'sCertified Professional Resume Writers
A follow-up letter sent a fewweeks after the initial application is essential in today’s poor job market. Hiring managers are seeing more and more applicants for each position andare generally so swamped that they cannot respond to all of them. Nor will they remember most.
Toensure that your candidacy gets the attention it deserves, use a follow-upletter to again place yourself in front of the hiring manager. Not only will that person take note of your continued interest in theposition, but you will certainly move ahead of those other, similarly qualifiedcandidates who did not send a follow-up letter.
Toensure a professional look for your follow-up letter and to maintainconsistency, use the same heading that was on your resume and initial coverletter.
Withinthe body of the follow-up letter, reiterate your most stellar qualifications asthey relate to this position.
