While I have not previously worked in Human Resources, you will see from my CV that I have several years of general office experience in a recruitment agency.
I therefore have a very good understanding of selection processes and have excellent administration skills, which I believe would meet the demands of the post.
I appreciate this chance to introduce myself and to tell you about my plans to make this career change. Sincerely, Joellen Job Searcher Your career change cover letter should be personal, honest, friendly, and professional, making sure the hiring manager can see who you are from the letter you write and whether or not you'd be someone he or she might wish to interview for the job posted.
