Here's how you should write a thank you letter of this nature:
- Start by thanking the employer for their consideration, letting them know you value their time. Mention the job you applied for and the date you applied. Address the hiring manager if possible.
- Use the second paragraph to mention your disappointment with not getting the job, ensuring your tone is neutral, like so: "While I was disappointed to learn I didn’t get the job, I appreciate the chance to learn more about the company and any future job opportunities that my skills might align with."
- The final paragraph is your opportunity to ask for a chance in the future. For instance, "I hope you’ll keep me in mind for future opportunities on your team. I’d love the chance to work with such an innovative and dedicated group."
- Close your letter with a standard closing such as "Best regards" or "Thank you."
