Sample Damage Control Cover Letter

Cover Letter for Students

Sample cover letter for damage control during the Interview will aid you in correcting any mistakes that you made during the interview or any other uncomfortable situations that arouse during interview.

Damage control letter can be written when during any circumstances of the interview you had faced a very uncomfortable situation that lead to some misunderstanding.

For example:

  • They wanted the candidate to have experience in a particular domain

  • They stressed on willingness to work in odd timings or relocate, which you were not comfortable with

  • You started to cough and could not stop

  • You sneezed like hell

  • Your phone rang and you took a long time to find it and turn it off

  • They asked you your credentials and you were dumb felled

  • They were interested to look at your certificate of excellence and you had not taken it with you

  • The interviewers were pronouncing your name wrong and you did not correct them.

These ridiculous and inconvenient circumstances are not a big sin. You can write a damage control letter to the recruiters after the interview to help them understand your stance. By writing this letter, you are giving yourself a chance to explain what was wrong with you at that time.

Date: May 1, 2005.

Mr. Toby Jackson,
45, Yuti Street,
Lipidoram Building,
NY 7998-679889.

Dear Mr. Jackson,

Thank you for the time you took to interview me for the seminar leader position. After our interview, I am convinced that I have the three ingredients you're looking for in your workshop/seminar leaders. I know you expressed some concern in our meeting that I have not worked in a personnel department. I want to stress, however, that I have participated significantly in the hiring process for my sorority and have a solid record of achievement in my human-resources classes.

As for your requirement for public-speaking experience, my having been leader of new-student orientation groups at my college for three years, along with outstanding grades in my public-speaking classes, qualify me nicely.

Finally, I have enclosed some writing samples to further demonstrate the third ingredient, my communications skills.

Thank you again, Mr. Smith, for this wonderful opportunity of interview for the seminar leader position. I promise you I will not let you down if you give me the chance to show what I can do. I eagerly await the next step in the process.

Cover Letter for Damage Control during the Interview

Date: September 5, 2011.

Mr. Barry Thomas,
45, Dolas Street,
NY 7889990.

Dear Thomas,

I am very sorry that the interview did not go well. I am allergic to roses, therefore I started to sneeze very badly. I was not aware of this. I tried to explain this to you, but I could not owing to the profuse sneezing. I am also sorry for breaking the glass when Mr. Ronald offered me water. I felt well after I left the room. The recruiter then asked me if I was allergic to any plants, after which I checked with a physician and got to know.

Please accept my apologies. If possible, could you please reschedule the interview to another date.

Thanking you,


Roland Theivs
