Letter of Intent to Graduate Program in Human Resources Management

Letter of intent: Diploma in Human Resources Management at McGill University

Over the course of my business career I have had the privilege of exercising leadership in a number of capacities in the marketing field. Most recently, I worked as a marketing coordinator at Best Kitchen and Bath - Modern Lamps. There, I engaged in market analysis; coordinated media-related activities; and increased the company's presence online and at tradeshows. Working for a relatively small, emerging organization was very gratifying because I was able to use my capabilities and knowledge in many different capacities. Previously, I worked for Microsoft as a marketing and sales associate. This offered me a completely different perspective on the field: my duties were highly specialized for this larger entity, and I focused specifically on the areas of organizing marketing events and performing marketing research. Both positions required me to use my quantitative as well as my…… [Read More]

To an Old Friend,

Chai Latte, you have always been there for me every day, even when no one else was. As a result, you were my first love because I could turn to you when I was happy, sad, stressed, or angry.

While I felt alone in the beginning, you became my best friend by being ever-present to an extent I no longer feel lonely or alone.

Support for health care bill

I am writing to request for your support in the health insurance bill. As you know, a proper health is vital and that we cannot enjoy wealth and other luxuries if we are not healthy. However, diseases like Influenza cough and other serious illness are unavoidable in our daily life. In addition, lifestyle changes have caused many individuals to suffer from illnesses like cancer, stroke, and heart attack. For those reasons, I advocate that the government should give health insurance to its citizens. The health insurance will insure against the risk of incurring health expenses (Hitchcock, Schubert & Thomas, 2003). This happens by first estimating the risk of health care among individuals. An insurer can then develop a routine finance structure such as payroll tax or a monthly premium. I believe the implementation of a Health Insurance Bill…… [Read More]

Letter Against Unionization Dear Mr Hines Thank

Words: 1880 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 42334858

Letter Against Unionization

Dear Mr. Hines

Thank you for our recent discussion regarding the American Professionals Union's attempt to organize our nursing staff. The nurses have made their many grievances known and I have listened intently to their rationale about unionizing. With the widespread shortage of nurses, many hospitals have given way to unionization. This is not a new trend. It is a popular way for nurses to resolve challenges and negotiate salaries. The American Nurses Association first endorsed collective bargaining in the later 19040s and at the time, viewed it as the road to improving both wages and working conditions (Carrell & Heavrin, 2007). Today, nurses' attention has shifted from wages, benefits, and work conditions, to also include patient issues. ecent strikes in California, Minnesota and Pennsylvania have focused on nurse to patient ratios in particular, after extensive research revealed a direct correlation between minimum nurse to patient ratios…… [Read More]

Throughout the term

Mr. Cameron read from an overhead projector that displayed small, blurry words and he often covered the words with his hand. Therefore, it was difficult to read the text and follow the lectures. To resolve the issue, I sent an email asking him to provide materials. However, he refused to provide the information and accused me of not listening to his lecture tape. I then had to forward his email to other students in the class to get him to reply.

Communication Jane Lee's Letter to the Human

Words: 704 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 4978660

Communication

Jane Lee's letter to the Human Resources Department at XYZ Solution is not effective and is unlikely to pique their interest. The letter has grammar errors that make it appear sloppy. There is too much superfluous information. The letter also does not take the audience's needs into account, and lacks the classic appeals of good persuasive writing -- logos, pathos and ethos.

The first thing Ms. Lee needs to do is to clean up the spelling and grammar. Capitalizing something like "math" and using the ampersand in mid-sentence conveys that the writer lacks professionalism. There is a word that does not exist ("flaure") and as a result a nonsensical sentence. There are other mistakes as well, and Ms. Lee will need to make significant revisions to make this a professional-caliber cover letter.

However, there are many other faults that make this an ineffective cover letter. Ms. Lee does not…… [Read More]

Job-Application Letter

There are several positive aspects of the letter reviewed within this assignment and which will be evaluated herein. It is obvious from even a cursory read of this document that the author is very confident and fairly talented. However, there is a thin line between confidence and overstepping one's boundaries, and there are a few places in the letter in which the author's approach could stand some restructuring and re-phrasing to emphasize a greater degree of professionalism. By adhering to a more formal format for this cover letter, it is not improbable that the author could obtain the position that he desires.

Still, the basic structure of the letter itself is commendable. The fact that the author has written this on letterhead with his contact information at the top is beneficial, and he follows the general structure for a business letter nicely, including leaving a space between the…… [Read More]

Management of Contemporary Organizations Cover

All identified causes within CDE Apparel indicate that the high employee turnover is due to voluntary reasons, rather than involuntary. In other words, the staff does not leave because they are forced to, due to restructuring, firing or retirement, but rather because they choose to (Adorno).

6. Alternative Courses of Action

The solution to the current problems facing CDE Apparel resides in reducing the employee turnover. And this can theoretically be done through the implementation of a wide array of managerial strategies, such as employee selection programs, outsourcing, corporate culture or motivational forces, briefly presented below:

Employee selection programs encompass numerous strategies and measures implemented by the employer in the hiring process and can be used to efficiently reduce turnover (Adorno). This basically means that the manager at CDE will select those candidates which are best skilled to do the job and which perfectly integrate within the corporate culture, whichever…… [Read More]

letter at one instance or another. Accountants are of no exception in writing letters. In many circumstances, they are required to write a letter to the government, clients, or fellow professionals. The letters have a common characteristic; they are official. Therefore, they ought to be written appropriately, considering several properties. Among these features should be a well-organized letter, style, the right tone and format (May & May, 2012). Writing a letter in the appropriate way assures the writer that readers will receive the message as intended.

A comprehensive letter requires proper organization. Such a letter should include an introduction, body and a conclusion. The introduction informs a reader about the themes contained in the letter. The body contains discussion of the themes mentioned in the introduction. These themes should be arranged according to their priority. It should be noted that paragraphs of a formal letter should be short and precise.…… [Read More]

Words: 1237 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Peer-Reviewed Journal Paper #: 4333328

However, I would be more careful about choosing the words and the metaphors that you employ to do this, because you have a tendency to use overly dramatic images that do not really fit the story that well. I also noticed that you do not provide a clear introduction that gives the reader a clear indication of the major themes and direction of your essay. You have described the circumstances of your birth in both the present tense and in the past tense, so I would remind you of the importance of selecting one or the other and then sticking to that choice throughout your essay.

The organization of your essay is also somewhat confusing because you seem to shift back and forth between a narrative description of your birth and of your family's history and of the philosophical (and historical) perception of the importance of gender in Chinese society.…… [Read More]

letter in a more introductory fashion, stating that I've been visiting the facility and found some problems that need attention. Then I would request that the manager implement the requested changes. I would also change the reference to ethnic minorities, and persons who grew up in poverty and in single-parent homes. It is a valid statement, but it sounds very derogatory. Basic cleanliness does not have to be taught in a class. Instead, the requirements for joining the staff can be drafted in a written document to serve as a guide for cleanliness. Perhaps a class in basic cleanliness might be seen as somewhat insulting. There are better ways to handle such an issue.

I do believe that the tone is adequate. It's very formal, straightforward and polite. The focus on politeness has been maintained throughout the exchanges with the manager, and the draft of the letter is no exception.…… [Read More]

Letter from a Birmingham Jail Analysis Essay

Words: 5159 Length: Pages Document Type: Paper #: Array

Abstract

Writing a Letter from Birmingham Jail analysis essay offers the student the gift of going back in time to the courage and ferocity of the Civil Rights Movement to examine one of the most eloquent documents of that era. The Civil Rights Era was one of the uglier periods in American history—and one of the most triumphant and inspiring. No document embodies this dichotomy as fully as King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail. In it, King details many of the horrors that black Americans have suffered at the hands of white hatred and complacency. Yet, the letter is without a doubt, a document of hope and conviction, inspiration and profundity. This paper details the background circumstances that provoked King in writing the letter and examines closely the brilliance contained in the words, ultimately discussing why it remains such a lauded document even today.

I find James Cameron's Titanic (1997) one of the greatest movies of our generation. This film is the mystical representation of the human experience through time. The story of Jack and Rose depicts something significant than the simple love story. Through Rose, this movie represents the struggle for freedom that woman of that time wanted to acquire. Similarly, Jack shows the freedom to run wild that we all yearn for. Hence, this movie is the most beloved movie of the 21st century as it has depicted the legendary story for generations that can even stir the souls of the people in the future.

8. A significant item from popular culture (a toy, gadget, fad, etc.)

One technological invention of the 21st century that has created great hype is the iPAD. iPAD has revolutionized the technical gadgets of all the times.

Dr King's Letter From Birmingham

Words: 991 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 27301146



Furthermore the rhetoric here is rich in symbolism. Dr. King draws parallels between the response of violence to his peaceful protests and other great personalities whose commitment to justice, truth, and love also had unintended and unfortunate consequences. Personalities like ocrates and Jesus, for example, could not be expected to deny their truth for fear of public reaction. Dr. King makes this argument even stronger by also drawing the parallel between himself and the completely innocent person, whose possession of money resulted in the evil of theft. By drawing these parallels, Dr. King points out that an argument regarding the actions of others cannot be used to condemn those who protest peacefully. Dr. King and his followers are innocent of the crime of violence. Dr. King's argument is therefore that they cannot be held accountable for the violence committed by others, who are neither followers of his, nor affiliated with…… [Read More]

Columbus Letters the Letters of

Words: 698 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 12219545

The key word in this passage is "pleasure" which indicates that Columbus's tone of voice is one of excitement and unbounded delight, due to "discovering" the many islands during his first voyage in 1492 which he was convinced held untold treasures like gold and silver which would help fill the coffers of the Spanish monarchy, thus guaranteeing that Spain would rule and dominate not only the lands but also the people by converting them to Christianity.

In contrast, Columbus's second letter addressed to the King and Queen of Spain sometime in 1493 is much more to the point and lacks any and all references to Columbus's highly subjective tone of voice regarding the lands and the possible riches they might hold. For example, Columbus mentions that the island of Espanola contains land "safer and better for farming and trading," a sign that Columbus is now only focusing his tone on…… [Read More]

welcome letter, client agreement, client intake checklist, and new client information forms are necessary and standard in the coaching and counseling professions. When drafting these documents for a specific client base, it is important to keep in mind the demographics of the clientele and the mission and vision of the business. Clients will notice if the forms are too generic or do not reflect the tone or tenor of the counselor. For this reason, the counselor should make sure to create personalized versions of these forms and use them judiciously.

The welcome letter should be used to establish rapport and create a personal relationship with the clients. In my case, the clients are in couples counseling. Therefore, the wording of the letter needs to reflect that we are dealing with more than one person in each session and that their differential needs are as important as their collective goals.

Further more, this could easily materialize in a superior quality of the products and services delivered by the organization, to eventually materialize in increased customer satisfaction and ultimately, larger corporate profits.

I am lucky in that my education and my professional experience have both been directly in line with my plans for future development and success, and I have managed to put an excellent portfolio of past work produced together. These external achievements, however, while representative and formative of certain internal qualities and skills, will not directly assist me in achieving more and greater results in the years ahead. For this, I will need to engage in a specific development plan that addresses me personal characteristics, desires, and situation in a manner that is proactive, optimistic, and objective and honest as is humanly possible.

There has been a tendency on my part to overestimate my available time and capabilities, not in terms of my knowledge and skills but in terms of my speed and efficiency. While I consider myself highly productive, at times I take on more than I can handle,…… [Read More]

Hardship Letter - Nutritional Analysis

Words: 1376 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 30738672

Subject should also increase fat intake to better balance his diet.

Subject's fiber consumption was so far in excess of DV that negative digestive consequences cannot be ruled out.

Salt intake was more than the DV, but could be easily corrected with some minor dietary changes.

The Food Standards Agency has developed the Eat Well Plate as an easy to follow nutritional guideline.

The Eat Well Plate is a visual display and quick reference for consumers to better balance their diets in compliance with the DV's. Analysis revealed a shortfall in fruits and vegetables as well as bread, rice and pasta - the two largest sections of the plate. Subjects fat consumptions were well below the DV's, but per the Eat Well Plate are the smallest category recommended.

Scarlett Letter

Words: 1749 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 19205297

Scarlet Letter

Modern day movies rarely do justice for the classics. The Scarlet Letter by Nathanial Hawthorne falls into that category. Even Demi Moore could not meet the genius of the original writing. "Demi Moore plays the strong-willed Hester Prynne brilliantly, and Gary Oldman (I want to marry him) turns Reverend Dimmesdale into an extremely complex and passionate character. The love between Hester Prynne and Reverend Dimmesdale lasts throughout the movie with great intensity - all of it rooted in the one amazing love scene which leads to Prynne's pregnancy." (hen Love Becomes Sin) I loved reading The Scarlet Letter much more than the I did seeing the movie and this report is an attempt to explain why I think so highly of the written work.

Nathanial Hawthorne was a writer from Salem, Massachusetts where his famous home, the House of Seven Gables, still stands to this day. Surprisingly, Hawthorne…… [Read More]

Paul and the Timothy Letters

Words: 947 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79006079

Part 1:
The role of teachers is that of passing down the wisdom gained to one who is beginning. The problem with 21st century teachers is that some of the ‘wisdom’ is not wisdom at all, but rather, false teachings. If one examines 2 Timothy 2:14-26, it discusses dealing with false teachers. “Avoid godless chatter…their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, who have departed from the truth” (Stedman, 2011). These false teachers will destroy a person’s faith like saying the resurrection has already happened. Or, in the case of modern times, that there is no God and the soul does not exist.
In such instances, these teachers become what many see as false prophets, filling the minds of people, with information that causes chaos more than order. What one must do to circumvent such destruction is to adhere to the truth within God. “Flee the…… [Read More]

CPA and accounting degree Letter

The author of this letter has been asked to presume that the author is a senior in college and studying accounting. The general priority of the author in this situation is to become a Certified Public Accountant upon graduation and otherwise meeting the requirement set forth for sitting for the exam and gaining the certification. Two questions are to exist when it comes to all of this. The first is what the author is going to do to achieve the author's goals and the second is what, if anything, will keep the author from achieving the author's goals. While it is easy enough to say that there is commitment to the degree and the certification, one has to realize and remember that working as a CPA is no small thing and gaining and keeping that certification is no less of an item to consider.

Unionization HR Response This Report Will Cover

Unionization H esponse

This report will cover a number of topics that pertain to the options that exist to response to unionization pressures and attempts within an organization. Tangents that will be touched upon include the alternatives that exist, why those options may seem attractive and/or fruitful, theories that relate to the labor relations process/function, research and data that back up the recommendations and their expected efficacy and the pros and cons of each recommendation. No unionization strategy is foolproof but following the right proactive and/or reactive steps should eliminate the employees feeling they need to or should unionize.

Shutting down unionization efforts can be very tricky but it is not impossible. It is all about finding the weak point in the strategy that is being undertaken and fixating on it. For example, the unionization effort in the Zinnia case study only included the back-end workers and not the front-end.…… [Read More]

Fennimore Cooper's Literary Offenses

Twain and Cooper

Cover Letter

The following essay looks at Mark Twain's reaction to James Fennimore Cooper's writing, and more specifically at the praise given to Cooper by these people. The reader should take away that Twain was correct in what he wrote because he was structurally accurate. However, Twain slights Cooper in that he looks at his works from an only a structural standpoint. Cooper's works meant much more to American literature than the face value of the books. Cooper was an innovator as far as American literature went, and gave American writers a distinct voice.

At first the essay strikes of jealousy, but Twain seemed more irritated by what the critics overlooked than he was of Cooper's writing. The assignment was enjoyable because it speaks to the clear differences between a visionary writer and a more structural one. Twain is more of an engineer than a creator. He…… [Read More]

Women in the military reported being sexually harassed at six times the rate of civilian women, and reported being sexually assaulted at more than twice the rate of civilian women. Moreover, women in the military seem even more hesitant than civilian women to report sexual assault or sexual harassment. Civilian women were almost three times as likely to report sexual harassment as women in the military. Moreover, while both civilian women and military women failed to report an alarming percentage of sexual assaults, civilian women were more than three times as likely to report those assaults than military women.

While this survey makes it clear that women in the military are at greater risk of sexual assault and sexual harassment than civilian women, it does not explain why the women are at risk.

Several topics will be covered such as why it could be cost effective and why it has not been cost effective. Several articles point to the need for prisons to carry out death penalties in order for death penalty sentencing to be cost effective. The introduction will highlight why the death penalty has been regulated more so than enforced.

Other articles will also show how death penalty sentencing can be used a means of creating persuasive plea bargains as criminals do not want to experience death row.

Inclusion for Children With Autism

Words: 2883 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 93312546



There is a growing body of support that indicates that while inclusion may be the best answer for mildly autistic children, it may not be the best setting for those with moderate to severe autism. Until now, research into the autistic child in the classroom has focused on taking the position of either for or against inclusion in the general classroom. However, when one takes the body of literature as a whole, it appears that inclusion is good for some and bad for others. This leads to the logical conclusion that differences exist between children who are successful under inclusion and those that are not. Understanding these differences is the key to taking the proper action for an individual.

Literature regarding autism and inclusion missed the important point that in order to make the program a success, we must decode the keys to success. One of these keys lies in…… [Read More]

Children Start Persuading Their Parents

Without knowing how to write persuasively, even a Harvard degree can get overlooked. Mastering persuasive writing is essential in the working world.

Persuasive writing proves exceptionally important in the working world after being hired, too. Some jobs directly demand persuasive writing skills. For example, marketing jobs might require copy writing skills; sales positions might entail writing frequent letters to clients. Whenever we need to encourage someone to use a new product or service or to continue to do business with the company in spite of recent setbacks, we need to write persuasively. Whether the letter is e-mail or type-written, persuasive writing skills are essential for success. Similarly, if we have to write a company memo, only persuasive writing skills can talk a supervisor into adopting a new communication protocol or adopting a new networking software system. Poor writing skills can even lead to being fired.

Business Management -- Employee Cross

Words: 1942 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 83244544

Because cross-trained employees are more knowledgeable about the overall business processes of the organization, their conceptual understanding of the mission of their organization is enhanced by every incremental increase of their involvement and knowledge of its operations (obbins & Judge, 2009). Beyond that element of increased involvement, the fact that cross-trained workforces tend to improve the morale and organizational connectedness of individual employees also contributes directly to organizational benefits through the positive impact on individual performance. Finally, cross-trained workforces also collaborate better and exhibit increased interpersonal rapport with coworkers. According to generally accepted principles of organizational behavior, this element also improves individual work performance beyond what is capable of achieving without such interpersonal rapport among coworkers (ussell-Whalling, 2008).
