Dear [recipient's name]:
Thank you for your letter dated October 22, 2010, which notified me regarding your decision about the technical consultant specialist job within our company for which I applied but was not hired. During my interview for the job, I was informed of the job requirements and necessary qualifications. I do believe that I am highly qualified for this position and would thus like to ask that you reconsider your decision. I would be happy to provide additional information on my background or meet for an additional interview.
Feel free to contact me via email or phone so we can discuss this further. Thank you in advance for considering my appeal, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
