Dear Laura Smith,

I am writing to you today to express interest in the Employee Relations Consultant

position. I am currently employed with Starbucks. The skills that I have gained throughout my
previous management experience as a Starbucks Shift Supervisor make me an ideal candidate
for the job of Employee Relations Consultant, and I would like to meet with you to further
discuss this opportunity. For the past few years I have become proficient in collaborative
teamwork, creating strong customer connections, and leading with integrity. Based on HSBC’s
values, I believe that my skills will not only be an asset to your company, but will also
compliment HSBC’s values.

The opportunity that is presented in the listing for this position is fascinating. I believe
that my ability to create and maintain strong customer connections reflects the values of HSBC
as stated on your website. The value of commitment to connecting customers to opportunities
is something that I have in common with HSBC. Through my experience of building
relationships with customers at Starbucks, I discovered the benefits and importance of
maintaining positive customer relationships. I believe that I can be a strong asset to the HSBC
team by embodying the beliefs and values of the organization.

HSBC values dependability. Standing firm for what is right, delivering on commitments,
being resilient and trustworthiness are qualities that HSBC stands for, and just so happen to be
qualities that I possess. The position of Employee Relations Consultant requires experience in a
fast-paced environment in order to handle sudden developments, changing priorities, and quick
responses and decisions. I truly believe that my previous experience in a fast-paced
environment, my value for dependability, and my high regard for customer relationships makes
me an ideal candidate for the position.

I am confident that my leadership and management experience qualify me for

consideration for the open position of Employee Relations Consultant at HSBC Financial
Corporation. I will contact your office next week, but feel free to reach out to me with any
questions at (123) 456-7890 or I look forward to meeting with you and
further discussing my qualifications. Thank you for taking the time to review my letter and
