Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I read with interest your request for a Human Resources Manager for O’Shea’s HVAC Supply. For the past five years, I have been an assistant to the human resources manager at a local automotive company and am eager to expand my responsibility.
At Billigan’s Automotive, I assisted with all aspects of the human resources function, from scheduling to payroll to interpersonal issues. I oversaw a number of tense situations between employees that taught me diplomatic skills and how to nurture a team environment.
During my tenure, I was able to attend a number of conferences that gave me additional information and expertise on human resources best practices such as employee evaluations, the Family Medical Leave Act and other legislative initiatives that can be tricky to facilitate.
I graduated from State University with a degree in general business and have held several HR positions with increasing levels of responsibility.
Attached is my resume. I look forward to talking with you in more detail about the position.
