Dear Ms. Wright:
I enjoyed interviewing with you during your recruiting visit to Virginia Tech on October 25. The
management trainee program you outlined sounds both challenging and rewarding and I look forward to
your decision concerning an on-site visit.
As mentioned during the interview, I will be graduating in December with a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion
Merchandising. Through my education and experience I’ve gained many skills, as well as an
understanding of retailing concepts and dealing with the general public. I have worked seven years in the
retail industry in various positions from Salesclerk to Assistant Department Manager. I think my education
and work experience would complement Fashion’s management trainee program.
I have enclosed a copy of my college transcript and a list of references that you requested.
Thank you again for the opportunity to interview with Fashion Department Store. The interview served to
reinforce my strong interest in becoming a part of your management team. I can be reached at (540) 555-
