    Hello everyone,

    I'm confused between "thank you for thinking of me" and "thank you for thinking about me". The rest of the sentence is "for the position".

    My husband is responding back to a job offer with interview.

    Thanks.

    "thinking of me" would mean that they thought of him when they drafted up the job idea and approached him.
    "thinking about me" would mean they considered him for the job, despite who approached who.

    Thank you for thinking of me sounds more natural. It would even be more natural to say, "thank you for considering me for this position."
