RE: HR Generalist Position 

Dear Ms. Houston, 

Your willingness to take time out of your busy day on January 18, 2013 to meet with me is greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed speaking with you about the Human Resources Generalist position. 

I am very interested in the Human Resources Generalist Position. I understand the importance of the job a HR Generalist performs. My previous experience working as Safety Inspector and OSHA Instructor for Pacific Ship Repair, gave me great office and record keeping experience. I have an excellent track record of completing projects and meeting deadlines. My expertise in adult training and customer service make me a great addition to your team. 

Again, I appreciate your time and consideration for this exciting opportunity. Please let me know if I can provide you with any further information about my background or qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Mr. Maxwell

I believe after reading my attached resume that you will be convinced that I am the right person for your open Human Resources Generalist position. My 15 years of experience and professional affiliations would enhance my value to an organisation like J&B Industries and I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you.

In my current position as a Human Resources Generalist I have initiated training for recruiters in interviewing techniques and new-hire orientation that has resulted in better hiring decisions and reduced turnover. I was able to reduce costs by moving the recruiting activity in-house and negotiated salary offers that were more in line with company objectives.

In addition I have streamlined the performance review process to encourage two-way communication and have reviewed job descriptions to insure they reflect the actual job requirements. I wrote the company policy manual regarding employee behaviour disciplinary actions benefit programs and incentives.

I believe that my wide ranging experience in the realm of human resources will be of benefit to J&B Industries and as I review your job requirements I see that I not only meet them but exceed them. Please call me at your earliest convenience to schedule an interview. I look forward to meeting you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
