Dear Mr. Lawrence,

As a successful and established recruiting professional, I bring more than eight years of experience and knowledge in locating highly qualified candidates pursuing mid-management to executive-level positions for various employers in diverse industries. I have the drive for developing business relationships and enjoy working one-on-one with employers and candidates. I find networking is key to professional and personal growth.

Through my efforts and success as a recruiter, I have received two prestigious awards from my last employer and have built a reputation for providing genuine leadership and working effectively with others. My talents and expertise in creative sourcing, networking, interviewing techniques and presentations have allowed me to make significant contributions to my employers, as noted in my résumé.

Since I have been very successful in recruiting and enjoy the everyday challenges of my profession, I have decided to launch my career as an independent recruiter. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you personally to provide more details on my background and the expertise I can offer your firm.

Your time and consideration in reviewing my credentials are appreciated. I will contact you next week to see if we can schedule a day that we can meet to answer any questions you may have regarding my qualifications. I look forward to speaking with you soon.


Chris Klinton
