A follow-up letter or email is sometimes required to find out the status of a particular job application if there has been a delay in response.
These letters have the standard format of a cover letter with the content being a little different in essence. Let us have a look at what a good follow-up letter looks like.

Dear Ms. Quinn:
This letter is in reference to my job application for the position of a Communications Coordinator with WWF America. I would like to inquire the status of my application as I was informed that it will be notified within three weeks and it has been much over that.
I would like to take this prospect to reiterate my enthusiasm and interest for a Communications Coordinator position. I possess the right capabilities and skills in being able to carry out the essential tasks of this job perfectly. I have worked in a similar capacity for Green Earth for more than six years and have been commended many times for my excellent communication skills with NGOs and funding committees. I have had the opportunity to bring in funding from European organizations which contributed to the 52% of the annual funds for the year 2008.
I am very interested in acquiring this job as I am positive in my capability to become an integral part of your company. For your reference, I am resending a copy of my resume and other application materials. I can be reached at (872) 222-2222 if you would like to contact me. I look forward to hear from you soon.
