Cover Letter for Banking Jobs
Cover letters: a very influential and key term in the modern days. It has become so popular that no one needs to give a definition for it. You can find the presence of cover letters almost everywhere in the corporate world. Cover letters are drafted for all kinds of official purposes. You can find many categories of cover letters that you can use for varied official purposes; from drafting a job acknowledgement letter to drafting a resignation letter. It can prove helpful throughout your career.
One of the categories of cover letters is a follow-up telephone call cover letter. This type of a cover letter helps you to be in contact with the employer or recruiter. As we all know, conversation builds a relationship and further strengthens it. Conversation is the root of a good bond. This type of a cover letter helps you in impressing the reader, irrespective of who he/she is- recruiter or the employer. This letter is written as a response to the call that the recruiter or the employer has made. The phone call may have been made to inform you about the interview schedule for which you have been shortlisted, or it could be to inform you about the various job opportunities in the caller's company. This call can be a response to your resume or to your query mail. While drafting such a cover letter, take care of the situation in which the call was made. You have to respond accordingly and appropriately. Also mark the point that a follow-up cover letter is different from a thank you cover letter, though you thank the reader in both the letters.

Little Rock, AR 72212.
Dear Mr. Chapin,
It gives me great pleasure to write to you today. I am very happy to know that I am shortlisted for an interview for the post of Relationship Manager in your bank. What makes me happier is; this was my first job application and I am shortlisted for the interview in the first attempt. It has really helped in boosting my morale. Your call has set me in high spirits. I am on the ninth cloud today.
So, I take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I really felt very nice talking to you yesterday. I also appreciate the amount of patience that you exhibited in explaining to me the job profile. When I applied for the job I was, honestly, not aware of the many points that you described regarding the job profile.
I am very much excited about the interview that is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. If you prefer, we can also have lunch together, and discuss things over lunch. I would be really very happy to tell you more about myself and my skills.
Once again thank you so much for the precious call of my life. See you soon.
Jeannine J. Moretti.

Ms. Shana T. Straka,
BCD Banking Co.,
3062 Reel Avenue,
Albuquerque, NM 87102.
Dear Ms. Straka,
Thank you so much for giving me a call yesterday. I once again seek your apologies for the network error that caused you trouble two three times. I really appreciate the humbleness that you portrayed in calling me twice. I had drafted you a mail last week regarding the query of job opportunities in your bank, since I was interested in your bank from my college days. I had decided very early that I would start my career with BCD Bank only. Therefore, I wanted the details of the opportunities in your bank.
I am thankful to you for giving me all the relevant details. I sincerely thank you for explaining to me the nature of the position of a Relationship Manager. After you disconnected, I sat down to update my resume. I am sending you a copy of it along with this letter. I hope that you will take it into your consideration and do the needful.
I once again thank you for the call and sincerely wish and hope to hear from you soon.
Richard P. Giltner.
