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)


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 :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
