Cover Letter for Job to Previous Employer


Subject: Applying for the position of [X]

Dear Sir,

My name is john smith and this document is being sent to you serving my cover letter. I am writing this letter to you because I came to know through yesterday’s newspaper that one post of the customer service manager is lying under your control. I wish to apply for the same post in your company because my professional qualification, set of skills and experience are relevant and according to desired criteria which you have mentioned in that advertisement.

I want to mention here that I have already worked in your organization as a customer services manager. But, to complete my higher education, I had to leave the company. Now, I am proud to inform you that I have a good track record of achieving big sales targets, having an MBA degree from the University of California. Accompanied by my experience and qualification, I think that I am an ideal candidate for this post which you have announced in the newspaper.

In my attached resume with this letter, I have also mentioned a list of my sales targets which I achieved in my last position as a sales manager in your company. It is witnessed from the record that I created key sales material.

In addition, I was involved in the process of training the newly inducted sales representatives, mentoring and thereby transforming them into the best salesperson. Moreover, I also added several accounts to the company by using my own referrals and those are the company’s potential clients nowadays. I also contributed towards improving the financial condition of the company and the company’s revenue was doubled during the last three months of my leadership.

I am keen to discuss this opportunity during the interview. I have attached my detailed resume with this letter. After reviewing it, if you feel that I am well suited for this position, you are requested to contact me at your convenience.  I will feel proud to serve you again while staying longer with you. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith

Dear Sir,

Your company recently advertised on its website that a post of assistant director (engineering) is lying vacant and applications have been invited to fill that position. After reading that advertisement and the related terms and conditions of the job, I felt confident that I could be a perfect match for that position you are looking to fill. I have been bestowed with a set of skills, abilities, and potentials which precisely match your requirement and I am sure I can prove myself a worthy asset for your company.

I want to mention here that I have served your company for five years as an assistant engineer. To get myself equipped with modern business techniques, I did my MBA and I have recently graduated from the University of New York. Now, I wish to be a part of your organization again because now I am coming with a unique background with an integrated knowledge of engineering and business administration. I am sure it will be a distinct feature of my cover letter and with this background, I am sure that I can contribute towards achieving your organizational goals. Moreover, I have identified in myself the following strengths:

  • I can represent your company in a professional manner than anybody else.
  • I can work in a diversified environment and can meet deadlines to complete each task well before the specified time.
  • I can schedule my workload according to priorities and can achieve targets.
  • With an integrated knowledge of engineering and business strategies, I can bring innovativeness to the company’s products.

If you want to know more about my capabilities, I have attached my detailed resume with this letter where I have mentioned a list of all those targets which I achieved while working as a previous employee in your company. If I am given a chance to express myself during the interview session, I can express myself in more detail, and there we can talk in a better way about what I can contribute to your organization.

Thank you very much for your precious time you spent reading my letter. I am waiting for your positive response in this regard.
