   Cover Letter Responding to Newspaper Ad


I read with great interest your advertisement in the New York Tribune for a human resources director. If motivation and dedication are attributes you value in an HR professional, then we need to talk.

The position your ad described matches my qualifications. I have served as human resources director for three firms, most recently ABC Company, where I was hired to create an HR department for a startup that had quickly grown to more than 150 employees. In addition to my experience in the hiring and separation of employees, I have a firm grasp of state and federal labor laws.

During my four years in the field of human resources, I have:

* Personally overseen the hiring of 54 employees at ABC Company.

* Improved the company's retention of qualified staffers, bringing the turnover rate from 18 percent to 10 percent over a three-year period.

* Managed all training and development functions for DEF Company.

I look forward to learning how my skills and background mesh with XYZ Company's goals.
