Sample Follow-Up Letter After Submitting a Resume

Subject Line of Email Message:
Programmer Position - Jane Doe Application

Email Message:

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name: (if you have a name, otherwise omit this line)

I submitted a resume earlier this month for the programmer position advertised in the Times Union.

I am very interested in working at XYZ Company and I believe my skills, especially my C++ experience at ABD company, would be an ideal match for this position.

If necessary, I would be glad to resend my resume or to provide any further information you might need regarding my candidacy. I can be reached at (555) 555-5555 or jdoe@abcd.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your consideration.


Signature (hard copy letter)

Jane Doe
