I wanted to write you a note and let you know that I have landed a job! My first day is tomorrow. I am very excited and looking forward to getting back to work doing what I love. It was a lengthy interview process, to say the least. I spent extra time negotiating salary and other benefits but I got what I wanted. I want to personally thank you for being such a valuable resource to me throughout this process. I really learned so much from you. Your program truly works for those who invest the time and stay committed!”
