Dear Ms. Ramos,

I am writing to see if you would be willing to meet with me for 30 minutes. I would enjoying hearing about your experience as an Audit Associate at Moss Adams.

I am in the process of researching prospective employers and would love to get your advice. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Dear Mr. Doe:

Thank you for the opportunity to meet with you yesterday to discuss the requirements of the Staff Accountant position at your firm. I enjoyed the tour and the other members of your team made me feel especially welcome.

The interview strengthened my enthusiasm for the position and interest in working for Ernst & Young. I was impressed with the varied duties of the job, the up-to-date technology being used, opportunities for advancement and the services the company offers. My education and internship experiences closely match the job requirements for this position, and I am certain I could make a significant contribution to the firm over time.

Again, I enjoyed the interview and found it very informative. As you requested, I am having my college transcripts sent to you from Golden Gate University. If I can provide any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me at 415-555-6789. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Alexander Yerzov
