With that said, keep in mind a few specifics when writing a cover letter for an internal position. Focus your value-based paragraph on achievements and skills you’ve used in your current job. This helps you take advantage of your most recent experience and sums up your finest selling points, which can either remind a hiring manager who’s already familiar with your background or persuade a department head who doesn’t know you that well.
Moreover, it’s wise to leverage your insider knowledge of the company’s mission and what it values most. Summarize how you’ve supported that mission during your current tenure and briefly describe how you’ll continue to do that in the new position with your skills and expertise. Concentrate on benefits such as boosting efficiency, increasing revenue, building customer relationships, or improving accuracy.
