Dear Mr. Wilson:

I would like to thank you for taking the time to meet with me. I am very interested in the position where I can learn a lot from you and your company.

After hearing from your Project Manager John about the need you have for someone with expertise in Microsoft Access, I would like to reiterate that I in my last position I used Access every day for 3 years and created over 10 databases with hundreds of records in each.

I would like very much to join your team and to learn and grow with the company. I will contact you via email next Tuesday to discuss my status.

Thank You,
Marv Levy
