HR Manager/Hiring Manager

Dear Sir/Madam,

Kindly accept my intent to join your organization on a job capacity where my background, experiences and accomplishments would be of utmost advantage. Given my many years working in a multicultural environment, I’ve gained solid and relevant exposure in full cycle recruitment, business development, account management, sales supervision, team expansion, customer relations, process audit and compliance.

While building my career both in consulting and financial industries, I had the opportunity to strengthen my personal and leadership abilities in network building, strategic planning and execution, employee coaching and mentoring, management decision making, and cross-functional coordination. My positive work attitude and upright track record are reflected in my numerous job level promotions as well as thru receiving top performance awards both at country and regional levels.

It is with great interest and enthusiasm that I apply for a position in your company. I am very much exposed to working for an American firm given my 13 years stint with Citibank in Manila, Philippines and I will be more than eager to learn and assimilate further with your corporate culture and market. Rest assured that I will bring with me my passion at work and commitment towards the organization’s vision.

I sincerely hope that you will provide me an interview where I can further discuss my skills and experiences, which you may find relevant and suitable for your current or future job requirements.

Thank you and best regards,

Maria Aileen Jimenez
