Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing again to apply for the ESL teacher position that you have posted in today's newspaper. I do not know if you can still remember, but I also applied to this same situation in your company last year. One of your representatives has interviewed me. Unfortunately, I could not comply with the hours that were required for the job. You wanted me to work in the mornings, but I had classes in school during mornings last year. However, this year, I was lucky enough to arrange all my categories in the afternoon, so I am free in the mornings. When I was reading the paper this morning, I found out that the position is available again. I hope that you would consider me again as a suitable candidate for this post. I would be happy to set a time for an interview at your convenience. You can reach me at 312-2222.

Further things to consider when writing job offer to human resources

Further things to consider when writing job offer to human resources

Job Offer

Job offer letters are formal letters sent from a hiring company to selected job candidates to confirm that the candidates have been offered the positions officially. A job offer letter usually comes after a candidate has successfully completed an interview. The letter confirms the employment's offer details such as the job's description, salary, allowances, work schedule, paid time off, the date the employment starts, etc. If a candidate chooses to accept the job offer, he/she signs and returns the letter as an official and formal confirmation of acceptance of the position.

Job offer letters kick off the employment relationship on a positive note. Say as much as possible about the offered position and its responsibilities. Clearly state the salary, mode of payment, and the frequency of payment. Briefly describe the benefits and allowances offered by the company such as housing, health, transport, etc. Be specific about dates and time. For instance, mention the employment start date and time, when you want the signed offer letter returned, the length of the probationary period, etc. Name other relevant documents the candidate is supposed to provide or sign before he/she starts working. Conclude on a note of anticipation of a positive response.

Letters to Human Resources

Letters to human resources are letters written to the personnel or department that deals with administration, training, and hiring of employees in an organization. The role of human resources personnel is to handle everything from payroll to policy issues and legal grievances. If you have a policy or legal question, a personal issue that affects your work, or a serious problem with a colleague, the first person you may want to contact is a human resources representative. The best way to begin this conversation is by drafting a letter stating your specific problem.

When writing letters to human resources, make sure to follow all the rules of a formal letter. Start by addressing your letter to the right person. Write a clear subject line communicating your problem and indicating that action is needed. Set a formal and professional tone early in the conversation. Keep your sentences short and clear and avoid providing more information than is necessary. Describe the issue precisely giving a timeline of when it started. Explain what you have done or think can be done to address the issue. Request for an in-person meeting. Close on a note of anticipation to seeing the issue resolved.
