Sample Cover Letter to Apply for an HR Generalist's Job

Here is the sample cover letter to apply for the position of HR generalist.

Date

Name of Hiring Manager or HR Staff

Company Name

Company Address

Company City, State, Zip Code

Dear Mr. or Ms. Hiring Manager or HR Staff (Use Last Name):

Your job posting for a Human Resources Generalist caught my attention because your key requirements for the position are strengths that I possess personally.

I have also exhibited these strengths in my current job. The industry in which I currently work, engineering, has many similar challenges to those you describe for your software development company.

My six years in HR as an assistant and then, as a generalist, have allowed me to grow and develop both professionally in my HR knowledge and experience and as an employee leader within my company.

I look forward to another HR generalist position to continue my growth in the field and ultimately, to serve an organization as their HR manager. Your position appears to allow this growth.

You requested applicants who have a passion for people and HR. I demonstrate this daily in my current job. I have responsibility for training and some aspects of organization development so I have been able to express my creativity and my ability to build effective programs. At the same time, working with our managers, I have strong experience in employee recruiting, interviewing, and retention strategies.

Your job posting requires experience in compensation and benefits. In my current generalist job, I have responsibility for administering benefits and working with accounting on payroll and compensation. I also do much of the administrative work as we are a smaller organization with no HR assistant.

I exhibit strong attention to detail and an ability to keep projects moving forward. I am responsible, accountable, reliable, and take ownership of any area or project needed by my employer.

One of the things that excited me about your current job opening is the potential to work in several areas in which I have limited experience.

These areas included developing an onboarding program for employees since you are hiring many new employees this year. My experience in employee training will complement this requirement.

Your posting also requested skills in change management as you plan to develop the skills of your workforce in this area. Since change management is part of organization development, I have some experience, but not a lot specifically in change management. I have worked more with general management development. I am exceedingly interested in expanding my knowledge in this area.

My resume details the experience that I have highlighted in this letter. Having had just one employer since college, I am excited to consider opportunities to do new things and expand my knowledge in the HR field. Your position appears to provide this potential.

Your advertised position also appears to fit my experience, accomplishments, and education. I am working on my PHR at my local university currently as requested and have my Bachelors degree in HR.

I look forward to meeting you during an interview.  Based on my experience and your job description, we appear to be a good fit for each other's needs. I am available at the numbers and email listed below.

Regards,

Ramon Hernandez
