Dear [Recipients Name],

First of all, I would like to extend my gratitude for the position you have offered me. I have been looking forward to working for the XYZ Training Consultants as a Process Improvement Specialist. Also, my discussion with you has proven to be both enlightening and very encouraging.

I would, however, like to express my concern regarding the compensation package you offered me. While I understand that this is the going rate for entry-level employees, I also believe that this is a bit too low for a specialist such as myself. I was hoping that we could take into account my qualifications as a Six Sigma black belter as well as the years of experience I have had working in this area.

I hope that we can discuss this matter further. If you feel that these are reasonable concerns, please contact me at 434-3434. I will be more than happy to discuss this issue further. Thank you very much for your understanding.

Further things to consider when writing cover letters to human resources

Cover Letters

Cover letters are letters written to explain the contents of other documents. In most cases, cover letters are sent together with resumes to provide additional information on the applicant's' skills and experience. They explain in detail why the applicants are qualified for the job they are applying for. A cover letter creates a critical first impression as it is often the earliest contact you will have with a potential employer. Employees use cover letters to screen applicants for available positions and to determine the ones that they would like to interview.

Cover letters are an essential part of every job application. You, therefore, need to make sure that your cover letter sells your abilities and skills to recruiters. Do not just repeat what is on your resume, rather, explain in details why you feel that you are the best match for the applied job. Do this clearly and concisely, and in such a way that the recipient would want to meet you. Mention the employment position that you are applying for, how you learnt about it and how you are qualified for it. Request the recipient to contact you at the end of the letter.

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.

    Nobody that knows me would think I don"t deserve a decent paying job. I am really good at a LOT of things. I say this while having really bad self-confidence, so you know it"s true. But I"m piss broke and it"s not for lack of work
