Dear Marina:

I want to thank you for the time you have spent interviewing with various members of management, touring our facilities, and going through our testing procedures. You have come through this process with the highest of marks—we were especially impressed with your professionalism. At this time, however, we have decided upon a candidate who has had experience with shipping and receiving logistics.

We are currently looking for candidates to fill several positions similar to the one you had applied for, and have enclosed a listing of them. We would welcome the opportunity to consider you for one of these openings.

Yours Truly,
