Further things to consider when writing thank you letters to employers
Thank You Letters
Thank-you letters are letters written to politely acknowledge a gift, service, compliment or an offer. Simply put, these are letters you write to express your gratitude and appreciation for someone's thoughtful actions. You can send a thank-you letter after personal events, an interview, networking events, after receiving a gift or donation, etc. A thank-you letter is always special in that it lets the recipient know that what he/she did was greatly valued and appreciated. The letter should be sent promptly and when the events are still fresh so that it can be more meaningful.
Thank-you letters should be warm, personal, and sincere. Begin with the two magical words "Thank you," and address the recipient in a way that feels most natural. Be clear about what you are thanking the person for. Let the recipient know why his/her specific gift or actions are cherished and why they are important to you. Inquire after the recipient's well-being and share some information about your life. Let him/her know that you are thinking about him/her and mention the next time you may want to meet. To wrap things up, thank the recipient again and let him/her know that you value his/her friendship.
Letters to Employers
Letters to employers are letters written to people or organizations that hire or employ people. The sender of such letters could be an employee or a person looking for a job. Letters to employers could be of different types. For example, they could be application and cover letters to apply for jobs or thank-you letters after interviews to show that you are still interested in the interviewed positions. The letters could also be complaint letters to raise complaints at work, apology letters to apologize for wrongdoing at work, or resignation letters to leave currently held positions.
Letters to employers are formal in nature and should, therefore, follow the basic layout of formal letters. The letters must be brief and clear so that the recipients don't spend too much time grasping the content. Use the proper salutation depending on the job position of the recipient. If you know the recipient, address him/her by his/her name. However, in instances where you don't know your recipient, you can call and ask. Mention the reason for your letter and provide all the necessary information. Avoid making offensive comments even if you are raising a complaint. Close the letter on a positive note.
