Dear Ms. Clark
Thank you for your time and thoughtfulness during our interview. You went out of your way to make sure I was comfortable and at ease. I will remember your concern for me as a person, and not just an interviewee, for the rest of my career. You demonstrated the qualities you are seeking in your new human resources coordinator. I sincerely hope I have the chance to exhibit the skills you showed me for the benefit of BZT Global.
As you know, I will be graduating from college in two weeks with a Bachelor’s degree in the field of Human Resources. I have researched a number of companies in the area but BZT Global stands out among the rest. BZT Global not only has an outstanding reputation in the industry, but it is also noted among the top 10 places to work. It is my goal to work for a company that truly cares about its employees and the community in which it does business.
If selected, I will dedicate my talents, skills, practical experience and educational knowledge to every task set before me. I am motivated by challenge and always ready to learn new things. During my internship at Smith Global, I learned the value of organization and time management. My internship at Wesley & Ryan helped to sharpen my communication skills and now I am able to speak to large groups with ease and confidence. I work very well with others and as a sole contributor when needed. I am passionate about my work and eager to prove myself worthy in the business world.
Thank you again, Ms. Clark, for making me feel like a valuable asset today. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning my qualifications or experience. You can reach me by telephone at 987-444-9999 or by email at [email] I am confident in my abilities to do well in the position you described. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
