Dear Ms Hayes
Re: HR Officer – Ref No. 123
I am sending my resume in application for the position of HR Officer at Australian Media Organisation, as advertised on the Seek website.
I am a self-motivated, efficient and diplomatic human resources professional with five years experience in the industry and I believe my strengths and skills make me a perfect fit for this position.
In my current position at National Resource Company I have demonstrated commitment to staff relations by taking the time to listen to complaints and deal with issues, resulting in a 40 per cent reduction in personal leave in my department. I am highly organised, having maintained efficiency even on accepted an extra half workload on top of my own duties.
Earlier this year I coordinated an evaluation of personnel management practices and reviewed all job descriptions against actual work being done. This resulted in employees responding favourably to having their voices heard, and to HR providing a more supportive workplace.
I received many high distinctions while studying a Human Resource Management degree and a Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training. While studying, I worked part time in HR assisting with payroll and recruitment. I developed a greater understanding of how Human Resource departments work and HR strategies improve efficiency and productivity.
I would like the opportunity to meet and discuss how I can contribute to the productivity and profitability of your business.
Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you.
