Dear Mr. Sanders,

With reference to your job advertisement on [website.com] under section [‘Careers’], I would like to apply for the HR Specialist position at [Organization]. Although I have spent the majority of my career in the public-school system, I am convinced that my skills and experience are transferable to the private sector. Therefore, I kindly ask you to consider my career change for the human resource position at your establishment in New York City.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Dwight Fisher] and I have three years of experience as a substitute teacher at [Public school] in [City]. I was pleased when reading the job posting because I am seeking to obtain a new, challenging and growth oriented position that better fits my interpersonal and performance-driven characteristics. The prospect of working at [Organization’s] vibrant ambiance and helping talent achieve their career goals is what makes me apply for this job opportunity.

In my second year at [University] I gained my first teaching experience for third-grade students. During my university years, I developed the ability to communicate complex information and adopt distinctive teaching methodologies. I received recognition for my detailed lesson plans and instructional PowerPoint tutorials (see references). In my current role, I prepare and update student records but also explain the school’s policies and procedures to new students. I am convinced that my communication skills and proven track record of documenting over 3000 cases are sufficient to perform the job duties listed in the vacancy.

While my attached resume provides an outline of my abilities, I welcome the opportunity to discuss [Organization’s] growth and innovative approach to people management in a personal meeting. You can reach me via [Email Address] or [000-000-0000] at any time. Thank you for your interest and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Kind regards, 

Dwight Fisher
