Letters of interest resignation 2017

  1. 1. Letters of Interest1 A letter of interest, also known as a letter of inquiry or a prospecting letter, is sent to companies that may be hiring, but haven't listed a specific job opening to apply for. This sortof letter is a great way to get your footin the door with a company you are interested in. A letter of interest can be used to see if the company has any job openings that would be a good fit for you or to arrange an informational interview with someone at the company Letter of Interest Format Contact person: First, try to find someone specific at the company to send the letter to, such as an executive in a division you are interested in. You might have some connections at the company through family, friends, or former colleagues. What to include: Your letter should contain information on why the company interests you and why your skills and experience would be of significance to the company. Use the letter to “sell” yourself, explaining how you would add value to the company. Letter conclusion:Concludeyour letter by explaining that you would like to meet with theemployer to explorepossiblecareeropportunities.You might even suggest setting up an informational interview if there are no current vacancies at the company. Remember to include your contact information in case the company is interested in following up with you. TIPS: Keep your letter short and to the point. You want to get your point across quickly and clearly, without taking up too much of the employer’s time. As letters of interest arebecoming more common, it is imperative that you make our letter stand out among the applicant pool. Unlike an opening-specific cover letter, you are not listing the relevant qualities you possess to match the specific opening, but rather to indicate that you would be a good fit anywhere within the organization. 1 Adapted from https://www.thebalance.com/letter-of-interest-tips-and-samples-2059708, by Prof. Graciela Obert.2017.

It is important to keep the letter as simple, brief, and focused as possible. The letter should also be positive. What to Include in Your Resignation Letter  The fact that you are leaving and date when your resignation is effective.  A thank you to your employer for the opportunities you have had during your employment.  You can also let the employer know you appreciate your time with the company. It's usually better to resign in person, and then follow up with a formal resignation letter. However, if you need to send a resignation email, write it as professionally as you would a resignation letter on paper. Regardlessof whyyou areresigning or how you feelaboutit, if you mention the reason you are leaving, make sure that you do not include anything negative or reproachful about the company, your supervisor, your co- workers, or your subordinates. This letter will be included in your employment file and could be shared with potential future employers; therefore, it should be professional and polite.
  4. 4. TIPS Although under some circumstances it may make sense to disclose the reason for your resignation, in many cases sharing the details about why you are resigning is not necessary. In general, keeping your resignation letter brief and to the point is advantageous. While it's not required, offering to help during the transitional period and weeks following is generally appreciated. Guidelines for Writing and Formatting Your Letter Resignation Letter Length: Keep your letter concise. Most resignation letters are no more than one typed page. Font and Size: Use a traditional font such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri, size between 10 and 12 points. Format: A resignation letter should be single-spaced with a space between each paragraph, and you should align your text to the left. Accuracy: Be sure to edit your resignation letter before mailing it. Show your resignation letter to a career counselor or ask a friend to review it. Letter organization Header: your letter should begin with both you and the employer's contact information (name, title, company name, address, phone number, email) followed by the date. If this is an email rather than an actual letter, include your contact information at the end of the letter, after your signature. Salutation: Address the resignation letter to your manager. Use his or her formal title ("Dear Mr./Mrs./Dr. XYZ) Paragraph 1: State that you are resigning and include the date on which your resignation will be effective. Paragraph 2: (Optional) You can explain why you are leaving (i.e. you are beginning another job, going back to school, taking time off), but this is not necessary. If you do choose to say why you are leaving, be positive - focus on where you are going next, not on what you disliked about your current job.
  5. 5. Paragraph 3: (Optional) Unless you know you will be completely unavailable, say that you are willing to help with the transition that your leaving will cause. Paragraph 5: (Optional) You can ask for a letter of reference from your manager. Paragraph 4: (Optional) Thank your manager for the opportunity to work for the company. If you had a particularly good experience, you can go into a bit more detail about what you appreciate about the job (the people you worked with, the projects you worked on, etc.). Close: Use a kind but formal signoff, such as "Sincerely" or "Yours Sincerely." Signature: End with your signature, handwritten, followed by your typed name.
