You just interviewed for a job that you think would be a perfect fit. You sent in a great resume with experience that matched the qualifications for the position. Your cover letter was on point and helped get you through the door. You had a couple of interviews — one with the recruiter and one with a hiring manager. They gave you positive feedback and you sent thank you notes to them.
