Sample follow-up letter after a phone call
Keep the conversation going after a successful phone interview by sending a personal letter.
An introductory phone call or interview is extremely common in today's job market. But just because the process may seem less formal than a face-to-face interview, the protocol is just as serious. So you should treat the follow up the same way you would with a traditional interview and send a well-written personal letter. Below is our sample follow-up letter to use as a template.

Director/Counselor for Students with Disabilities

Dear Ms. Sunners:
It was a pleasure speaking with you regarding employment opportunities at the University of Omaha. As we discussed, I am interested in providing Orientation and Mobility (O&M) or liaison services to students with disabilities. Please consider my qualifications if a suitable opening becomes available. I have enclosed several copies of my résumé, so feel free to give them to colleagues who may be interested.
Throughout my career, I have learned that the availability of Orientation and Mobility services can mean the difference between success or failure for students with disabilities. It often determines whether a student travels safely to and from school or work. I have dedicated my career to giving students the opportunity for success through Orientation and Mobility and Gross Motor training. I offer:
- 20 years of progressive experience in the field of Orientation and Mobility.
- Experience as a published writer and speaker on Orientation and Mobility topics.
- Lifelong commitment to helping individuals with physical challenges and multiple disabilities.
- The ability to provide thorough assessment of Orientation and Mobility needs and development of plans to help students achieve their goals.
At this point in my career, I am exploring new professional challenges at college campuses. I am eager to relocate for the right opportunity. Since the University of Omaha has approximately 500 registered students with disabilities, I am confident that my services would be beneficial to the students.
If you are interested in a dedicated professional with strong credentials, please call me at (555) 555-5555. I am available for a telephone interview or in-person meeting at your convenience. Thanks again for your time and assistance.
