Dear Martin:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write the letter of reference. Your words were so glowing I thought the company might believe I walked on water! But good news–I start to work October 15.

This is the job I’ve been waiting for, and I’ll not forget your part in helping me land it. Let me know when I can return the favor.

Best regards,

Dear Earl:

I want to thank you personally for your interest, support, and encouragement in my recent job search. I’ve accepted a position with T.J. Samson and Associates in San Diego.

I’ll be joining their company as vice president of marketing with responsibilities in the five-state western region. Primarily, we sell oil-field engineering and inspection services and related products.

Your advice was particularly helpful in the interviewing process. Let me know if I can help you, your friends, or your associates in any way. I don’t want to get too far away from your network!

Sincerely,

Dear Cheryl,

We did it. And I do mean we. Your comments were apparently exactly what the new marketing director at Perfield wanted to hear. Out of the 200 candidates originally considered for the position, I am one of four who have been invited back for a third interview.

Although that interview is still two weeks away, I didn’t want to let another day go by without thanking you for taking the time to write the letter of reference. Although I can’t imagine how I might help someone of your position in a similar way, I do want you to call on me for any other favor–perhaps some information or special tickets to an event you may want to attend when traveling in New York? I’d love to hear from you for any reason or favor at all.

Thank you for making me look so well qualified for the job.

Cordially,

Dear Ms. Wyatt:

Thank you for supplying a reference for me to Hewett-Martin, Inc. Evidently, you did an excellent job in communicating with them, and your opinion was highly valuable to that company. I began my job as research assistant for Mr. Franks almost immediately.

I still remember the excellent working relationship in your department and count it as extremely beneficial experience that has enabled me to progress in my career.

Thank you again, and please write or phone if I can help you in any way.

Sincerely,
