Dear Ms. Stephens:

It was a pleasure meeting with you today.  Thank you for taking the time to discuss with me your opening for a Staff Analyst.  After our discussion, I’m convinced that we have a match in the position and my qualifications.

I enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the goals and future plans of Multimedia.  I especially enjoyed our discussion of the new developments in process at your firm and the role of the staff analyst in those developments.

As we discussed during the interview, I will call you next week so we may further review the position and the progress toward selecting a candidate.  I believe my selection as that candidate could prove beneficial to both of us.

Sincerely,
Always sign letters

Joseph Berkenstock
