How to Set Up an Interview Letter

Save

Writing a letter asking to set up an interview with a company is an appropriate accompaniment with sending in your resume. An interview letter can help you express your specific skills and qualifications, along with the reason for your interest in a particular position. An interview letter can also help you set up an informational interview with a company that has not stated they are hiring at which you are interested in working. Taking the time to write a decent interview letter will put you at an advantage when the company decides who to follow-up with in the interviewing process.

  • Type your greeting such as "Dear" using the addressee's formal name instead of title. Skip one line and begin the first paragraph. The first paragraph should express your interest in a particular position that is available and state you are interested in interviewing for this position. If you are unsure if the company has a particular position available within a certain field, you can express your interest and ask to set up an informational interview with the company.

  • Skip one line and begin the second paragraph. In this paragraph, state your specific qualifications, skills and interests for the position you are interested in interviewing for. If you are asking for an informational interview, state your qualifications and indicate why you are interested in learning more about the company. You have the option to include a third paragraph stating any details you think are relevant to the position you are interested in.

  • Skip one line and begin the final paragraph. This paragraph should restate your interest in the position and setting up an interview. Tell the addressee you look forward to hearing from him or her in the near future. Be positive in this statement, expecting that you will get an interview with this company.

  • Skip one line and type your closing statement such as "sincerely" or "best regards." Skip four lines and type your name. When you print your letter, sign it directly above your typed name.
