Follow-Up Letter to a Job Application

If you have spent time doing an application form and you are desperate to hear from that company then it is very frustrating. It is also worth noting that some companies despite all the effort you have gone to in submitting your application form, may not hear back from them as to any feedback.

One way to follow up your application form is to send them a follow up letter in which you can reiterate your skills and experiences in line with their job description but also ask them for any feedback and express your interest in the role again.

Please find the below example letter which you can use as a guide when trying to do yours. Use this letter example if you want to follow up on your job application. You should amend it first before using it for yourself.

I appreciate that the closing date was DATE but I wanted to ensure that you had received my application form and also to express my interest in the position of XXXX.

My background is (explain a bit about your relevant experience in line with the role you have applied for. Use the similar wording that they have used in their application and job description to ensure that they pick up on the wording and view it as what they are looking for).

I would be available for an interview or Telephone interview at short notice should you feel that my skills are relevant to this position.
