Follow Up Letter after Resume


A Follow-Up letter after Resume is written by a job seeker who has submitted a resume to an organization to be considered for a job at the company. When the applicant does not hear from the company, he is compelled to write a follow-up letter to inquire about the status of his job application. Usually, after the resume is sent to the employing company if they are interested they call for an interview otherwise they send a reply stating that they do not require the applicant’s services in their company. There is very little chances for an employer not to send any reply, but in case that happens, the applicant should not just assume that he is not selected for the interview. He should send a letter inquiring for the same

This is an official letter, and so it is mandatory that the correct format is followed and no inform words are used. The letter should be written in a polite tone, and you should not blame anything on your employers.

Dear Sir / Madam

Ref: Follow up on resume

This is a follow-up letter on the copy of my resume which I handed in personally to your receptionist last week on, DD/MM/YYYY, at 4 pm. Ms. Kelly, at the reception, was kind enough to take my resume as she could not locate the Personnel Manager at that time to meet up with me.

I have not heard from your esteemed organization since then; I would like to inquire if you have received my resume for a kind consideration of my job request.

I have work experience in the medical field, having done volunteer work at a nursing home for ten months. I am familiar with medical terms and products, and I believe I can be of service to MediCare, should I be given an opportunity to prove myself.

Thank you for your kind attention on my letter, and I hope to hear favorably from you soon.

Yours Sincerely,

Alfred Peterson
