I was thinking if you could help me on writing a sweet one or two paragraphs of email requesting the recruiter (from a big audit firm which I recently went for an interview) to reconsider my application?
Here are some brief details regarding the job/scenario:
- I was invited to an interview for a general assurance position (audit assistant) to audit public listed companies.
- requirement: bachelor degree in accountancy, fresh grads.
- I made it to the interview due to having excellent academic results.
- However, I was not selected for the job, probably due to not being able to present myself well in front of the interviewer (I messed up the interview a bit due to being too nervous).
- after a month I saw them posting an ad hiring audit assistants to audit the SMEs (small and medium enterprises), it was for the diploma holders but I do not mind to join the team with a degree because all i wanted is to join the firm, to learn and gain experience from auditing, doesn't matter what type of client i'll be auditing (the audit methodologies used to audit public-listed companies and SMEs are quite different, the former is way more complicated).
What I was thinking of including in the email is that.
- I wanted to show them my enthusiasm / determination to learn anything about audit.
- I have been working as an audit assistant in a small audit firm for more than 6 months and have assisted seniors in auditing SME companies from various industries. (I don't think my 6 months of experience would impress them but I did learn a lot and was assigned to audit a few SME clients by myself with audit manager's supervision.)
- I was praised for my quick learning and analytical skills (not sure if this sounds like I'm making it up but this is true)
- I want them to reconsider for my application and transfer me to the SME team.
- letting them know that I saw the ad from JobsDB (a local job portal) and am eager to join the team.
- I can volunteer to work for free for a few months to prove myself.
- and anything you think is necessary to be added to the content.
The content should not be long, just a sweet 100-150 words of email will do, good enough to make the recruiter think that I am worth for reconsideration. Thanks.
