Following up with a potential employer may just make the difference between hired and not hired. Networking is a great tool to expand your arsenal and to grow connections but you have to follow up with your connections.
A job follow up later should be formatted on a typed personal letter head.
Clarify how the position was found and how you came into knowledge about it.
Attach a proofread and fail proof resume that impresses even you.
Highlight any key experience that you deem necessary.
Ask for an interview and try to set a date.
We previously talked this morning on the phone and I have sent over a copy of my resume for your consideration via fax.
I would like to express my interest in any available data entry jobs whether they’re temporary or permanent. I have a very strong background in basic computing skills, excel management skills and writing.
I would very much so like to schedule a meeting with you in person so that I may discuss the qualifications which I feel would suite me for the job.
