I'm building my own website. I have a form that a visitor can request my CV, and I've added a label showing this line of text: "Thanks for your concern, I'll send you my CV soon." Is this sentence proper? I read on other websites that concern is much used to express empathy or worry. If this is the case, what is the best wording for my situation?

    Replace with "concern" with "interest" and it will sound better. – cobaltduck Jan 15 '16 at 18:36

Your assumption is correct as the OED defines concern as

1 - [mass noun] Anxiety; worry

I would recommend interest:

1 - [mass noun] The feeling of wanting to know or learn about something or someone.

I feel that perfectly sums up what a person requesting your CV wants.
