How to Write a Professional, Dignified Thank-you Letter

Here is an example of a business thank-you letter you can edit to fit your circumstances. A thank-you is the proper, courteous type of communication to send, whether you have just interviewed for a job or whether you want to show your appreciation for a job well done.

Sending a thank-you letter to a service provider can have a profound impact on the quality of future service that provider renders. A thank-you letter to a service provider also can be used to increase business for that business.

On the other hand, a letter to say "thank you" to an interviewer for a job you want has the potential to translate into a job offer. Employers say they appreciate the time that candidates spend capturing important aspects of the interview and expressing a connection between your qualifications and the employer's needs, which is an essential part of your post-interview letter -- making the connection.

If you email the thank-you letter, your subject line can simply say: Thank You. But if you email a post-interview thank-you letter, you should include the job title, followed by "Thank you."

Dear Jessica,

Thank you very much for your help during our recent store renovation. Your design experience and organizational skills really made a difference in how quickly we were able to re-open, and the new layout already seems to be increasing sales of some items!

We are planning a similar renovation of our satellite store on the West side, and I would like to contact you for your expertise on that project as well, as the time comes closer.

I have given your name to several executives who inquired about the new look. I hope that this will help you to grow your business as well.

Thank you again, and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Regards,

Kathy
