Follow-Up Letter After Sending a Resume

When you reply to an ad and the employer is unknown, generally you will be asked to send your resume and cover letter to a post office box. You won't have a phone number and therefore will not be able to call the company to follow up on your resume and cover letter. You must do so in writing. Send a follow-up letter about a week after you mail your resume. Reiterate your interest in the job and your qualifications for it. Always enclose another copy of your resume and don't forget to ask for an interview.

Dear Hiring Manager:

On February 6th I replied to your advertisement for a financial analyst that appeared in the Bangor Daily News. I want to confirm that you have received my letter and resume. I am enclosing another copy of my resume.

To reiterate what I said in my prior letter, I am a 2004 graduate of the University of Maine's Graduate School of Business and have more than six years of business and financial analysis experience. This includes two years of domestic and international travel as an internal auditor for Botanee Bay Foods, Inc., two years of credit analysis at Millbury, and a treasury internship at Envirlab.

I think I would be a perfect fit for the financial analyst position at your company. Here, again, are highlights of some of my achievements:

  • Participated in the due diligence and/or post-acquisition reviews of five acquisitions

  • Planned, coordinated, and/or participated in the compliance and productivity audits of forty-one independent business units

  • Participated in the fraud review of a major business unit

Please call me at (207) 555-5555 to set up an appointment for an interview. I look forward to discussing my qualifications in further detail.

Yours truly,

(Signature)

David Goff
