  • Thank the applicant for his or her interest in working for your company, being specific about the time and effort spent in interviewing, travel to your site, and references or other information furnished for your evaluation.
  • Thank you for giving us an opportunity to consider your experience in filling the plant manager position. We especially appreciate your time in making the special trip to Dallas for the interview.
  • Thank you for forwarding your résumé to us; we appreciate the opportunity to look at so qualified a candidate for our clinic.
  • We want you to know first of all how grateful we are for your willingness to interview with us when such a great distance was involved. Your travel here made it so much easier on all our staff to talk with you firsthand about their expectations for this position.
  • Thank you, Marilyn, for visiting with us about the job we have available in Clinton. We also very much appreciate the time you took in supplying us with such a complete portfolio.

  • Frank, we so much appreciate the time you’ve spent with us during this past month while we have been outlining plans for the European expansion.

  • Thank you for taking the time to interview with us. We realize time is one commodity graduate students have in short supply, and we appreciate the interest you’ve shown in Wellesey.

  • With your telecommunication expertise and your management experience, we certainly wanted to be able to bring you aboard in this position. However, as we discussed among ourselves in evaluating your résumé, budget has always been a thorn in our side here. We find we just can’t come up with the money to meet your salary expectations.
  • We were very impressed with your achievements at Belview–the two service awards this past year particularly. But after re-evaluating our needs here, we just do not feel we can justify the salary requirements you outlined for us.

Dear Mr. Terciametz:

Thank you for taking the time to talk with us about the engineering position in our Montana location. After visiting with you last week, we were impressed with your investment results in the last few years and particularly intrigued with the new investment strategy you outlined for us.

As we discussed, however, in a new fund such as ours, budget decisions aren’t changed lightly. We have established what we feel is a reasonable salary for the position and have determined to stay within that range. Although you no doubt could contribute greatly to our efforts here, we regret we can’t meet your salary expectations.

You have our best wishes in your job search as you seek a position with a more seasoned organization than ours. We’ll be hoping to hear good things from you in the future.

Sincerely,

Dear Roger:

I want you to know how much I enjoyed our recent interview together. I truly feel that you would be an outstanding addition to our team. Your financial abilities are well documented, and your theories concerning innovations in finance management were intriguing.

Unfortunately, your salary requirements exceed the amount we were authorized for this position’s salary. Given your exceptional credentials and talents I think that I could convince the committee to authorize an additional $10,000 a year, but I know that would be as high as we could go. If you are interested in the position at that price, please contact me.

I’m sorry we could not meet your salary requirements. If you do not wish to re-negotiate, please accept my sincere good wishes on your job search.

Regards,

Dear Ms. McBride:

I was impressed with your technical writing qualifications, and the portfolio samples you submitted during our interview. The flight from Maine to Alaska must have been quite exhausting, and we appreciate the time you took from your current job to fly to our Fairbanks office.

Unfortunately, we are unable to meet the salary requirements you requested. We are extremely sorry about this—we feel you would have been a valuable addition to our team.

We wish you luck in securing employment.

Sincerely,

Dear Max:

I would like to thank you for the time you committed to going through three rounds of interviews with our company for the position of General Manager. I realize that these interviews were quite intense, and I was impressed with the sense of ease and professionalism you exhibited—two qualities that we prize in our managers. Unfortunately, the salary you are requesting exceeds the amount that we are able to offer at this time.

I wish you success in finding a company that can offer you a salary equal to your abilities.

Regards,
