How To Write A Follow Up Letter After Applying For A Job (Teacher Edition)

published on 05 October 2023

As an educator, 

I struggled in formatting things just right.

I knew that customizing your resume to fit every job you apply for was wise, but I didn't INITIALLY know that you ought to be doing the same when you are writing a follow up letter after applying for a job.

Today, I'm just giving you a format.

I don't want you to struggle bus like I had at first when I lef the schools... for good.

The letter you write should be sent to that company via email and it ought to look something like this:

To Whom It May Concern: (However, if you can find the hiring manager's name, that's 10 points for Gryfindor in a sense; I'll write another blog about that later I think).

*Next paragraph should be short; written something like this, stating something specific that you like about the company such as an initiative. Thank the hiring manager for their time.*

I hope all is well with you. I wanted to follow up on my application for the [Job Title] position at [Company Name], which I submitted on [date] [time of day helps too]. I am very excited about the opportunity to contribute my skills and expertise to [specific aspect of the job or company, especially if this skill is in the job description].

* Show more interest in the company by writing something like this in the next paragraph showing that you have done your research on the company you want to work for and the position itself*

 I am particularly impressed by [mention a specific project or initiative that resonates with you that the company has done through research that has been done]. My background in [relevant skills or experience that should be on your resume] would help [Company Name] thrive and add value to your team.

*Keep the communication door open,offer to provide additional information or references if needed.*

Please let me know if there is any additional information I can provide or if you require references to support my application. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications further in an interview and learn more about how I can contribute to the success of [Company Name].

*Thank the hiring manager one more time. Be professional and polite.*

Thank you for considering my application, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Your Name

That's all for today.

With that Being Said,

Make the Most of Your Day!
