Dear [Recipients Name],

Good day! I hope that you are doing well.

I would just like to thank you for referring me to XYZ company. I am happy to say that I was offered the job of the full-time graphic designer. I will begin working with them next week.

I have learned so much about design and management by working in your department. I will be sure to use these lessons in my future ventures. Again, I am very grateful.
