What do you think of this email? Do you think it is too much?

Thanks so much for your help!!

Hi xxxx,

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to me about the Project Management position with xxxxxx. ( I might get rid if this next sentence cause you already thanked them for time in the opening sentence) I appreciate your time and consideration in interviewing me for this position.

After speaking with you, (----get rid of that) I believe that I would be a perfect candidate for this position, offering the quick learning and adaptability that is needed for a diversified position. In addition to my enthusiasm for performing well, I would bring the technical and analytical skills necessary to get the job done.

I am very interested in working for ( I would say the company name. Ex: I am interested in becoming a part of AT&T's growing team and look forward to hearing from you...etc) you and look forward to hearing from you once the final decisions are made regarding this position.


(I would change this to .. I can be reached at xxx-xx-xxx if further information is needed.) Feel free to contact me at anytime if further information is needed. My cell phone number is (xxx) xxx-xxxx

Thank you again for your time and consideration. ( I would cut this out and just do your closing)

Sincerely,
xxxxxx

I hope I didn't change too much. I thought this might help it sound more assertive and professional. It took away a little of the "hire me please! and may help it feel more like "i'm the right person for your team." I think it's a good thank you note but I also agree that you should add something personalized from your conversation so that the interviewer might also recall something specific about you. If you want a opinion on 2nd draft -post! I hope it helps... and good luck I hope you get the job!

Do most people do hand written thank you's now?

Good luck with this job!
I've done both handwritten and email Thank You's and have been successful with both when interviewing for jobs.

On the other hand, working as a Recruiter in HR, I love to receive a handwritten Thank You. I receive tons of emails daily, so it's tough to make your Thank You email stand out, but I definitely notice a Thank You card in my mailbox. I make sure to include them with the employee's file. We live in such a fast-paced society now that it speaks volumes when individuals take the time to write a personal note.

I always send a personal thank you card - I think it makes you stand out from the others. With that being said, I am a program manager, and hire project managers, and I thnk the email is great. If you ever would consider moving to San Antonio, let me know :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
