Career Change Cover Letter Sample



Career Change Cover Letter Sample :



Accepting or rejecting job offers


The goal of a job search is to obtain one or more job offers. Each offer requires a written response from you.


If you wish to accept a job offer, write a short letter that.

Refers to the offer letter sent to you.

Clearly states your acceptance.

Summarize briefly the terms of the offer.

Expresses your enthusiasm


On the other hand, you may wish to reject ajob offer. It is

important to do so in a professional manner.

Your short letter should include….

An appreciation for the job offer

Nice words about the firm

Succinct but pleasant statement of rejection


As a professional courtesy, you should also call both the firm whose offer you accept and the firm(s) you reject to advise them of your decision.


It makes sense to specify a particular reason for rejecting ajob offer when you would have a sincere interest in working for that firm if the impeding circumstance changes. The purpose for specifying your reason for saying no is to leave the door open if circumstances change.


There are several ethical points to remember when writing a letter of this type. Be sincere-don't fabricate a reason. Your reason should not be one you hid during the course of the interview process. And if the reason you are rejecting this job is that you are accepting another, don't try to leave the door open. That would be like accepting an offer of marriage from one individual while stringing along someoneelse with the other.


Where are we now? We have seen letters written in response to different situations a help-wanted advertisement, a job lead from a networking contact, a rejection letter from an employer, a follow-up to a job fair and two possible responses to a offer of employment. The response to a help-wanted ad is much like an outreace-cover letter, but you will usually be told some of the positive characteristics the employer is seeking. The response to a rejection letter is based on the premise that your expression of continued interest may help you get another interview and certainly can't hurt you. The follow-up to a job fair contact allows you to show the initiative and interest that most of your competitors will fail to exhibit.


The cover letter adds to your attractiveness as a candidate in three ways.


Highlighting : You can give those positive characteristics of greatest interest to a particular employer more prominence in the cover letter than you did in your resume.


Reframing : Through your cover letter, you can put some of your experiences in a frame of reference that more closely meets the needs of the employer.


New material : Your cover letter can include material of interest to an employer that would be difficult to present in a resume. Your motivation for wanting to work for that particular company is an example.
