What to Include in a Follow-up Letter

Introductory Paragraph: Thank the employer, re-introduce yourself, state when you were interviewed, and recall something that stood out in the interview.

Second Paragraph: Reiterate your key selling points and mention anything relevant that you forgot or missed during the interview.

Concluding Paragraph: Thank the employer again, offer to provide additional information if needed and tell them that you will call in a few days to find out if there is anything else you can do to get the job.
