A follow-up letter sent a few
weeks after the initial application is essential in today’s poor job market.
Hiring managers are seeing more and more applicants for each position and
are generally so swamped that they cannot respond to all of them.
Nor will they remember most.
ensure that your candidacy gets the attention it deserves, use a follow-up
letter to again place yourself in front of the hiring manager.
Not only will that person take note of your continued interest in the
position, but you will certainly move ahead of those other, similarly qualified
candidates who did not send a follow-up letter.
ensure a professional look for your follow-up letter and to maintain
consistency, use the same heading that was on your resume and initial cover
the body of the follow-up letter, reiterate your most stellar qualifications as
they relate to this position.
