Alison Grey, Human Resources Manager
Twitter – Human Resources
1355 Market Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

Dear Alison Grey:

I found the description for the Twitter Human Resources Assistant position through USF’s Handshake database. As a senior Politics major graduating this May, I have been expanding my HR experience as a Human Resources Intern for the past few months at Ideo Design in San Francisco. I am extremely interested in pursuing a career in Talent Acquisition and would enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to utilize my previous experience in Human Resources to benefit Twitter, an organization I admire for its widespread influence in today’s modern world. I have studied Twitter’s influence on many major political events including various social movements domestically and internationally, and the future of Twitter is something I would love the opportunity to be an active participant in. I also believe my distinctive social justice background would be highly beneficial to the Twitter HR department.

As a Human Resources Intern at Ideo Design I am gaining extensive experience in administrative aspects of HR. My daily tasks include approving PTO for employees and managing new hires and terminations on Excel spreadsheets and in databases such as Workday, ADP, SAP and Microsoft Visio. I also have experience with office scheduling for Frog’s Talent Acquisition Partner.

Throughout my time at the University San Francisco Career Services Center I have served in a number of roles. As a Student Assistant, I utilize excellent customer service skills as the first point of contact in the office and perform various administrative duties, including scheduling using Google Applications. I also served as the On Campus Recruiting Student Assistant, a role in which I worked with students, employers and my supervisors to maximize student employment opportunities and maintained our job database. As a Career Planning Peer Counselor, I work in a paraprofessional role to advise students and alumni on resumes, cover letters and general career questions. My experience as a peer counselor has ensured exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, familiarity with confidentiality, and professionalism. Furthermore, I collaborate with a team of four to brainstorm marketing ideas for on-campus events and competitions.

The possibility of working for Twitter is very exciting and I would love the chance to meet with you in person to further discuss my qualifications. Thank you for your time and consideration.
