Dear Ms. Star:

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me today regarding the research assistant position. I have found the meeting very informative. As I have explained to you, my experiences and background very closely match the requirement for this job. In addition, my two semesters of internship background have given me the opportunity to develop good people skills--attributes which involves extensive one-on-one contact with people in different industries.

Once again, I want to stress my interest in this position. If there is any way I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Helen Zhu
