Websites like Monster.com and Berkeley Law offer sample business thank you letter templates that are free to the public. A business thank you letter shows the recipient that the sender appreciates his or her time, efforts or consideration for employment.
It is appropriate to send business thank you letters to prospective employers, future employers, deserving employees and business partners. Letters should be short and to-the-point, but should specify the reason for the letter. Additionally, thank you letters to prospective employers might elaborate on the candidate's suitability for the desired position. Email thank you letters are now preferable to "snail mail" letters, according to Berkeley Law.
