I wanted to let you know I started a new job last week as the Director of [ --- ] at the non-profit [ --- ].
This draws on my business operations, sales and marketing and management experience. A seemingly good fit for me. I was offered the job after two interviews that took place one week apart.
It happened quite fast. I hope I will be able to stay and grow here for awhile.
What you did for my resume was key in helping me present my accomplishments and expertise, and I am very grateful. 
Again, many, many thanks! ........"
