Thank You for Applying Email Example

A friend of mine applied to this company in NYC and forwarded me the ‘thank you for applying‘ email within a few minutes of submitting their resume. I thought it was a great example of how to write one that helps set the expectations of the candidate and paints a positive first impression.

The email reinforces the company mission and helps the candidate learn more. The ATS it comes from is Greenhouse. Note the embedded videos at the bottom.

Thank you for your interest in Compass and for your application. Our mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. Talented individuals like you, inspire us and we appreciate the time and effort that you put into the application process.

Compass is building the infrastructure, data and technology on which the future of the real estate industry will operate. Investors are recognizing Compass’ place in this multi-trillion dollar industry, as we recently received $450M in VC backing with a $2.2B valuation.

You can learn more about us, and our plans for Compass to be everywhere, on our website and YouTube channel.

If your application and experience align with what we are looking for to fill this role, a recruiter will be in touch with you soon.

Thanks again for your interest in a career at Compass.
