How To Write a Thank You Letter For Promotion

Why send a thank you letter for promotion? After all, you applied for the new role and you deserved it didn't you? So why would you, or should you, even consider sending a letter to show your appreciation when you are successful?

Companies are evolving rapidly today and the art of self promotion is an essential business skill if you want to continue to progress.

It's simply not enough today to accept a promotion without sending a personalised thank you letter to the manager responsible for promoting you.

Your simple letter will mark you out as an employee with excellent manners.

Thank You Note

It's also an easy, subtle way to network, as your manager may share your letter with his / her peer group as an example of best practice.

It doesn't matter if no one in your company has ever sent a thank you letter for promotion before ... you could be the one who sets the new benchmark!

Before You Write Your Thank You Letter

  1. Invest in some good quality stationery to write your letter on

  2. If you will be mailing the letter, make sure you have a stamp ... this is so much more personal and thoughtful than a franked letter

  3. Have a copy of your appointment letter to refer to.

I hope the thank you note examples here will inspire you to create a professional, pleasant and sincere thank you note for promotion that has a positive effect on your professional profile.
