Dear Mr. Bennett:
I have received your letter of November 18 informing me of your inability to offer me a summer position with Bennett, Cantor and Barron.
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the consideration you extended. Your insights and expertise have been of tremendous value to me. Should your circumstances change, please let me know, as my strong interest in Bennett, Cantor and Barron continues.
Please extend my best of the members of your firm. I wish you all continued success.
Note the brief but gracious acknowledgment of the rejection. This small effort will establish in the minds of the employer your professional attitude, and may just cause them to keep you in mind should circumstances change for them. They might even be so impressed to reconsider right now!
