The reasons I wrote this letter in this style had a lot to do with the way the ad was written. It was obvious that the company owner had a sense of humor (they were looking for a marketing god/goddess) so I wanted to show them my humorous side. I’ve had jobs where it wasn’t a good fit culturally, and really didn’t want to do that again. As for my line about “I know what you’re thinking…” I totally agree that it was cheesy and I couldn’t believe I wrote it myself. But I had a feeling that he was looking for someone not afraid to show confidence – and I was right.
Letters to human resources are letters written to the personnel or department that deals with administration, training, and hiring of employees in an organization. The role of human resources personnel is to handle everything from payroll to policy issues and legal grievances. If you have a policy or legal question, a personal issue that affects your work, or a serious problem with a colleague, the first person you may want to contact is a human resources representative. The best way to begin this conversation is by drafting a letter stating your specific problem.
When writing letters to human resources, make sure to follow all the rules of a formal letter. Start by addressing your letter to the right person. Write a clear subject line communicating your problem and indicating that action is needed. Set a formal and professional tone early in the conversation. Keep your sentences short and clear and avoid providing more information than is necessary. Describe the issue precisely giving a timeline of when it started. Explain what you have done or think can be done to address the issue. Request for an in-person meeting. Close on a note of anticipation to seeing the issue resolved.
