Dear Ms Gates,

I want to thank you for your interest in the Research Analyst position in Heath and Co. and appreciate the time you have put in the job application and interview process.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer you the research analyst position. Although your academic record and your educational qualifications are quite impressive and as demanded by the job, there were other applicants who possess a hands-on experience and we have chosen a candidate among them. I hope that after you have acquired some professional experience, you will apply for other job openings that Heath and Co. has to offer in the future. We will surely keep your resume on file and will let you know if any requirement suiting your credentials comes up.

On behalf of Heath and Co., I thank you for the time, interest, and effort you have shown in our company and I wish you the best in your future career endeavours.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me at 560067 during office hours.

Wishing you all the best for your future.


Peter Fleming

Human Resources Manager
