Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining the HR Department of a large organization such as (name of company. During my research, I was drawn to your vacancy announcement for an HR Assistant, and feel my qualifications are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
I am currently working part time as an HR Assistant for HR Technologies while pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management for College County, expected this coming December. I secured my position with HRT by way of recommendation from my school’s placement center. After volunteering to assist the Dean of Students with diverse administrative activities, he reached out to the placement center to see how he could help me secure a job in human resources offering a flexible schedule and compensation while attending school. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work part time as an HR Assistant, a role I truly enjoy. It is preparing me for my long term goal as an HR Generalist.
In my position as an HR Assistant for HR Technologies, I provide HR administrative support to the VP of Human Resources and his team. Nearly everything that goes through the HR Department crosses my desk on an administrative level – which is a lot!
I manage diverse aspects of the HR function, from preparing W2 Forms for new hires and creating vacancy announcements and job descriptions, to assisting with HRIS projects and coordinating OSHA Safety meetings.
As much as I enjoy my current position and appreciate the opportunity to learn, I would like to work for a company such as (name the organization) with a larger company infrastructure that offers an opportunity to learn more about the HR function. I think now is the best time to explore opportunities so I am ready for more responsibility upon obtaining my degree.
Please refer to my attached resume to see just how much I have done and what I have to bring to an HR Assistant position with your organization.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I hope to speak with you soon.
