Executive Chef Thank You Follow-up Letter after Interview

Updated on: December 4, 2015


Thank you / follow-up letters are typically written after an interview has been conducted and the candidate is confident that he is the likely choice. This letter provides the candidate with a chance to reconnect with a prospective employer. This way, they can reiterate their interest in the job, while thanking the interviewer. It also provides the employer with another glimpse into the candidate’s personality.

So, what is it exactly that one writes in a thank you follow-up letter after executive chef interview? Simple. You address the person who interviewed you, say that you are thankful that they took out the time for you and show your interest in working for the organization once more. As we mentioned earlier, it is a foolproof way of making your presence obvious once more.

Dear Mr. Rivera:

The interview yesterday for executive chef position was insightful indeed. While I was very interested in working for Ritz-Carlton, I am even more so now after I heard your stance on how an executive chef needs to perform in a busy environment.

As we both agree, there is a reputation to uphold and a lot of work to be done! Owing to extensive experience in managing kitchen staff, maintaining food safety and hygiene, quality maintenance of culinary dishes and productivity maximization, I am positive that you will not find a better choice other than me. As discussed, I am looking forward to a trial on Monday to acquaint you with the two sides of my professional profile i.e. culinary excellence and kitchen management.

Thank you for taking time out from a busy schedule to interview me. I realize that you keep a busy schedule and to give an hour to an interview must have been quite difficult. Please accept my gratitude. I look forward to meeting with you soon and to eventually work as an executive chef at Ritz-Carlton.
