How to write an internal job relocation covering letter
If you are applying for a role internally, it is important to approach it with the same professionalism that you would if you were applying externally. You will still need to demonstrate that you have the required qualifications, experience and skills for the job. However, you can use your previous experience at the company as a positive point in your application. You may need to explain why you are moving from your current position.
It is best to explain that you enjoy for the company and wish to stay but want an opportunity to move upwards in the company. Some people make the mistake of assuming that the recruiting manager knows about them. It is best to assume that they know nothing and include all of the detail relevant. Make sure that you therefore explain how your current role has been good preparation for the one that you are applying for.
Include details of any relevant training courses you have completed internally as well. Never assume that they will look these them up themselves, you want to make it as easy for them as possible to get to know all about you. Even if they do know you, they may not remember what you have done with regards to training etc so treat it exactly like they do not know you and this should give the best possible chance of securing an interview.Cover Letter for a Internal Job Relocation
