It gave me immense pleasure to receive your call yesterday. Though I tried to contact you two three times, your secretary could not put me through as you were busy with some meetings. But I am really glad that you took the effort to call me yesterday. I wanted to solve some doubts regarding the responsibilities and the duties that are associated with the post. I thank you for answering my queries yesterday.
I could also get a clear idea about the goals that I should set if I am selected for the post. I have updated my resume and I am attaching a copy of the same for your reference, along with this cover letter.
I contacted some people, whose reference you had given me and I got to know a lot more about the profile. I am now well assured that my decision in applying for the post was not wrong. The profile is exactly what I wanted and is very much suitable to my skills and qualification.
