SUGGESTED SUBJECT: Appreciate your time and advice. Do you need anything else from me?

Dear Mrs. Lincoln,

I write to reiterate my interest in the position of Marine Engineer, which I was interviewed for on 25th October 2014. Also, your perspective on the value of an engineer was motivating for me.

After the interview, I was highly motivated to widen my intellectual prowess in the field through thorough research. The research has made me engage in personal training, which will make my services highly effective if eventually considered for this position.

Also, I met with some experts in the field who boosted my interest and made me happier at the thought of joining your company.

I will gladly provide more information about myself if the need arises. Thank you for the privilege.  I hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

SUGGESTED SUBJECT: Great speaking with you!

Dear Mr. Edwards,

I was genuinely happy at the opportunity to be interviewed on 9th January 2014. My interest in this position was significantly sparked during the interview. This had a positive impact on me by motivating me to take a week’s course on business communication.

This course has opened me to ways to administer sales skills effectively. I believe this skill will enhance my services if eventually considered for this position.

I look forward to a positive response from you soon. Thank you again for the interview.

SUGGESTED SUBJECT: Regarding my application…

Dear Mr. Richard,

It was a pleasant time for me during the interview for the position of Product Development Manager in your company. After you explained your current marketing practices to me in the interview, a new idea came to my mind.

The idea is about creating social platforms for the promotion of your company’s products individually. I have discussed and fine-tuned the approach with some of my colleagues in school, and I believe this plan will be very valuable for your company.

I will like to be allowed to share this idea as part of my responsibility if I am selected for the position.

Can I come by your office next week Monday to discuss the execution of this idea?

SUGGESTED SUBJECT: Great talking with you on Wednesday. I have got a plan to improve sales!

Dear Mr. Ron,

I am greatly impressed at your disposition towards me during the interview on 12th August 2015.

I have been very concerned about the problem of poor sales which you mentioned during the interview.

I have a great plan to solve this problem. We encountered a similar challenge at Lebanon Trades Limited during my internship in 2009, and I am very confident that this plan will significantly help recover your sales.

Can I come to your office later today to discuss the implementation process?

Thank you for the time and opportunity.
