interview thank you letter

Dear Mr. smith,

I greatly enjoyed our conversation about KPMG's assurance associate position today. Speaking with you has reinforced my perception of KPMG's outstanding employees. It is always a great opportunity to be able to speak with a partner, especially one as well traveled and engaged with his career as you are. I especially liked hearing about your insight into your firm's ongoing efforts in maintaining the consistency and the quality in the service provided from each office. You told me that the constantly changing nature of the accounting profession continues to keep you interested in your work. This dynamic work environment is also one of my reasons for pursing the assurance position with KPMG.

During the interview, you asked me about a skill I could improve upon and about any regrets I have during my time at UCSC. Unfortunately, my answers left little time for me to tell you about my strengths. I am convinced I have all the qualities you are looking for in a candidate. I am a very dedicated and detail-oriented worker with verbal and written communication skills to match. If you could spare some time, I would like to provide specific examples from my educational and work experience. Many of my peers would make great candidates, however, I feel that my previous work experience in SOX Section 404 compliance and in the client-oriented contracting industry set me apart.

With six clients to manage, you must be extremely busy. I appreciate the time you have taken out of your schedule to interview me and I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you.

Wayne Kerr,

Nice try buddy! Seriously, trying to scrape some credibility back after some terrible question responses ain't gonna win no brownie points with me. I've never read a message that leaves me with such an intrusive feeling that I've been rimmed before.

On the other hand though, I could use a few yes men. It's hard enough constantly arguing with those around me to convince them that my approach is the best, so if you can promise me that you'll agree with everything I say, in any circumstances, we may be able to take this further.

Think about it.
