After Ron Szweda interviewed with CareerLab for a consulting job, he sent us a superb post-interview follow-up letter.
Unfortunately, we weren't able to hire Ron. He was an excellent candidate, but our workload did not warrant additional staff. When Ron heard the disappointing news, he wrote this upbeat follow-up letter. In the letter he continued to compliment us--and himself, which is important--and his marvelous attitude certainly kept the door open to him in the future.

I wanted to let you know I received your message on my recorder recently, regarding the fact that your needs are minimal at this time. Making internal improvements, I'm sure, will keep you quite busy over the next year. It's disappointing that you are planning on not bringing anyone on board at this time. But there is always the future.
Things still look bright for making the move to Chicago sometime in January. I'll be talking to them in Chicago next week and will know more soon.
Last Wednesday, December 1, I gave my presentation / seminar, as I mentioned to you in one of my letters, for AT&T in Westminster. It lasted from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm and was quite a lot of fun. Find enclosed letter commenting on the presentation.
In addition, the new publications you gave me have been quite helpful and informative. I can see that I am only the tip of the iceberg as far as the number of professionals that have been approaching CareerLab over the years. That's terrific. It only intensifies my desire to keep trying to become a contributing constituent of the CareerLab team sometime in the future.
Thanks again, for your professionalism and consideration on my behalf My best to you for a happy holiday season. Look for my next article in the Rocky Mountain News within a week or two, concerning the subject of, "Tell me about yourself."
