Question description

Letter of Interest

A position has just opened in another department at the company where you work. While you have a lot of experience in your current job, the new position would require you to learn about new products and procedures. Write a letter to the hiring manager at your company expressing your interest in the new position, relating your accomplishments in your current position, and describing how your skills will help you succeed in the new position.
Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.

Example of Effective Letter of Interest

It has caught my attention that the J&J Company is looking to hire an advertising manager. This position is of much interest to me, and I would like to express my interest by first describing my qualifications for the job. I have been employed by the J&J Company for the past ten years now, and I have learned skills and knowledge through this company that are of much greater value compared to other firms I have worked with. My experience as the creative director has attributed to much of my growth as an aspiring businessman and has successfully equipped me to complete and resolve all projects, tasks, and issues at hand.

As J&J Company's creative director, I have been exposed to many different settings and situations. Being placed in such different situations, I have learned how to adapt myself to many kinds of environments while continuing to progress each stage of the marketing process.

I was recently commissioned by the previous advertising director to create a marketing campaign design plan for J&J Company's most recent client, Klean Kanteen. After leading the design team to create the campaign, one of our team members plagiarized the writing sample for the campaign ad, which created much dispute between the original source. After making many emails and phone calls, I took the situation upon myself and made sure to settle any disputes that almost resulted in possible lawsuits. As the team leader, I was able to calmly diffuse the problem without hesitation or delay.

My strengths as a team leader not only qualify me as an advertising manager, but they also prove my ability to work well with individuals while nurturing teams for high levels of performance. My prior experience with J&J Company has given me an advantage and extensive knowledge of the company that enables me to learn the job quickly, allowing the company to save time and expenses that would otherwise be sent on training and other areas of human resources. Hiring me would be very beneficial for the company both financially and for time-efficiency.

As J&J Company's creative director, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the advertising department, allowing me to build good relationships with the advertising team and learn what they do. I have found that my current position qualifies me for the role of advertising manager because both departments requires the same skills and areas of expertise for high levels of performance. Although I would have to adjust and expand my role within the company, this position would enable me to expand my knowledge and responsibility in the company. I fully believe that I am the best fit for this position because of the dedication, loyalty, and commitment I have invested to the company already.

Having been with J&J Company for the past ten years, I am a firm believer of the company mission statement, values, vision, and beliefs. I would like to take this opportunity to further involve myself in the company and to take the company further, specifically in the marketing and advertising department. My qualities, skills, and areas of expertise prove me to be the best candidate for the job. Please review my attached resume for my specific qualifications, accomplishments, and work experience. I can be reached by phone at (555) 555-5555 ext. 7 and by email at moo@gmail.com. Thank you for taking your time to read my letter of interest, and I look forward to arranging an interview with you soon.

Sincerely,

M.J.

("It has caught my attention that the J&J Company is looking to hire an advertising manager. This position is of much interest to me, and I would like to express my interest by first describing my qualifications for the job. I have been employed by the J&J Company for the past ten years now, and I have learned skills and knowledge through this company that are of much greater value compared to other firms I have worked with. My experience as the creative director has attributed to much of my growth as an aspiring businessman and has successfully equipped me to complete and resolve all projects, tasks, and issues at hand.")

Content & Development

The response provides very effective content and development of ideas. The writer develops ideas fully and memorably, using appropriate concepts and terms. Supporting details clearly develop ideas very effectively. ("I was recently commissioned by the previous advertising director to create a marketing campaign design plan for J&J Company's most recent client, Klean Kanteen. After leading the design team to create the campaign, one of our team members plagiarized the writing sample for the campaign ad, which created much dispute between the original source. After making many emails and phone calls, I took the situation upon myself and made sure to settle any disputes that almost resulted in possible lawsuits. As the team leader, I was able to calmly diffuse the problem without hesitation or delay.")

Organization

Very effective organization is a prime feature of this response. A cohesive and unified structure, along with effective use of paragraphing or grouping of information, logical connections, and transitional devices, is demonstrated. Additionally, the conclusion clearly addresses what is expected of the readers after reading the document. ("Having been with J&J Company for the past ten years, I am a firm believer of the company mission statement, values, vision, and beliefs. I would like to take this opportunity to further involve myself in the company and to take the company further, specifically in the marketing and advertising department. My qualities, skills, and areas of expertise prove me to be the best candidate for the job. Please review my attached resume for my specific qualifications, accomplishments, and work experience. I can be reached by phone at (555) 555-5555 ext. 7 and by email at moo@gmail.com. Thank you for taking your time to read my letter of interest, and I look forward to arranging an interview with you soon.")

Language Use & Style

Very effective use of language and style is apparent throughout the response. The writing demonstrates precise, professional language and word choice, a defined voice, and a clear sense of audience, along with the presence of well-structured and varied sentences. The following compound sentence is used effectively: "This position is of much interest to me, and I would like to express my interest by first describing my qualifications for the job."

Mechanics & Conventions

This sample response shows very effective control of mechanics and conventions. There are few or no errors in punctuation, spelling and usage, and grammar and sentence structure. The response effectively demonstrates correct use of punctuation (i.e., apostrophes, colons, commas, hyphens, italics, parentheses, periods, quotation marks, and semicolons), excellent spelling (and word usage), and correct grammar (i.e., excellent use of subject-verb agreement, pronoun use, parallel structure, and sentence structure; particularly a lack of fragments and run-ons). ("My strengths as a team leader not only qualify me as an advertising manager, but they also prove my ability to work well with individuals while nurturing teams for high levels of performance. My prior experience with J&J Company has given me an advantage and extensive knowledge of the company that enables me to learn the job quickly, allowing the company to save time and expenses that would otherwise be sent on training and other areas of human resources.")
