Dear Mrs. Smith,
The enclosed resume and supporting documentation are presented for your review and consideration for acceptance into The Branch Bank’s Human Resources Associates Program. Ideally, this opportunity will develop and strengthen my skills and knowledge while exposing me to a broad spectrum of areas and challenges conducive to professional growth in the field of Human Resources.
I offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and tenure with The Branch Bank since June 2000 in the position of Senior File Clerk, Pre-Arbitration/In-Coming Collections Department. Initially, I joined this department as a temporary employee and proved myself as a team player capable of handling a heavy caseload while significantly improving the quality of office procedures. As a result, my current position was created for me on a permanent basis.
Further, to ensure the continuity of positive changes that I have brought to the department, I provide ongoing training to employees, a role I greatly enjoy. To date, I have been recognized and rewarded for my drive to go above and beyond what is expected of me, with recent contributions that include an interim position as a fully trained Auto Call Directory representative. I am confident that my education, record of excellence (including perfect attendance), and personal attributes (strong organizational, overall communication, and computer skills), combined with a firm aspiration to further my career in Human Resources, qualify me as a suitable candidate.
Although this application, along with my personnel file, illustrates my background well, I feel that a personal interview would better demonstrate my knowledge and abilities. Therefore, I would appreciate an opportunity to interview with you at a convenient time. Thank you for your review and consideration. I will contact you soon regarding the next step in the process.
