Requesting Opportunity for an Interview Again

Career Letter

Dear …

__(Some time/A short while)__ ago, on __(date)__, I had an interview scheduled with __(you/your organization)__ which I subsequently had cancelled because of an offer from my existing employer. At the time, I was torn between that offer and following through with the interview with __(you/your organization)__. It was a decision that was a very difficult one for me, but in the end I decided to take the offer from my current employer, a company that I was already familiar with.

The new position they offered to me was quite appealing in the beginning. However, having now worked in that position for __(# weeks/months)__, I have realized that this was not the best choice for me after all. It has become evident that it is clearly not a good fit for me, hence, my letter to you today. I am writing to you in hopes that you have kept my resume on file and that there may still be an employment opportunity for me within your organization.

I am asking you to once again consider interviewing me for a position with __(name of company)__. I can assure you that given a chance to prove my abilities, you would not be disappointed with my performance. Any opportunity to discuss this further with you would be greatly appreciated. For your convenience, I have enclosed a copy of my current resume.

Thank you for your consideration of my request for an interview. I ask you to kindly contact me anytime at __(phone #)__ and look forward to hearing from you soon.
