Why would you send a sample thank you letter after your phone contact? Some people when looking for a job will call to see if they can talk to someone in HR. This actually gets them some inside information on what if any job openings are available. Companies will promote from within most of the time for the non technical positions.

Once they find out any positions they are immediately hiring for, well they have a slight advantage. Why? Well now this person can taylor their resume to fit the job opening. This gives them a slight advantage.

Dear Mr. or Ms.__________________________,

I wanted to personally send out this thank you for our phone conversation yesterday at (John Doe Inc.). You graciously provided me with some very useable information regarding your customer service job opportunity.

As you can see, my resume is enclosed, as I’ve looked forward to applying for this position for quite a while now. I also took the liberty to supply my references. As you will see on my resume, I have many years experience.

If you could grant me the opportunity to go over with you in detail my qualifications, you will notice my best strengths are in this area. Please contact me at _____ or send me an email at _____. I'll be following up in several business days. I would really like the opportunity to talk with you in person.

Your Name


Do your homework:

Check the company website to see what they do there. That way when you make phone contact you will have an idea of the type of jobs are performed there. It helps to write down some questions for the phone contact. Use these in your phone call to advance the conversation so you can find out what job openings they have or that are on the horizon.

Follow Up Again:

Again, you should contact the person again in a week. They may have more information by then and want to put you through at least their testing process first.

Be prepared for testing:

• Most companies look at your resume then call you in for testing if they decide your skills fit.
• You might prepare for this by trying to look some up online.
• Once you get this far and feel confident you have passed the testing phase, then start practicing for the interview, because that will be the next step.
