Dear Mr. Lee,

As you know, I recently started a new job at ABC Company. However, I have realized that the job duties and the work environment are not what I expected. I am therefore writing to inquire about the possibility of returning to my position as Assistant Editor at XYZ Company, which I held for the past four years.

I sincerely regret my decision to resign and if I were to be rehired, I can assure you that I can offer a long-term commitment to the company.

In the interim period since I was Assistant Editor, I have gained experience with new content-management systems, including Drupal and WordPress. I believe these skills would be invaluable as ABC Company continues to expand its online presence.

If the company would consider rehiring me, I do understand that my job may have been filled. If so, are there any other open positions I would be eligible to apply for?

Thank you in advance for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you, and I am available at your convenience for a conversation. I can be reached at 555-555-5555 or at

Best regards,

Stephen Applicant (signature hard copy letter)

“Subject: Letter For Rejoining Job

Dear Ma’am,

I worked with your organisation as a marketing executive from February 2017 to October 2020. I had to leave a year ago as I was relocating to Bangalore to be with my ailing mother. Since she is recovering, I am returning to Pune and hope to rejoin.

Before leaving, I had served devotedly in my previous role. I hope this will be taken into account when you are making your decision. Looking forward to a positive response from you.

Thanks and regards,

Vikram Seth”

Dear Sir,

I worked as an HR executive with your company but quit three months ago to accept a new job offer. Unfortunately, after a month of joining, I realised that the job was quite contrary to my expectations and lacked growth potential. I recalled my past experience at your company where my role was extremely fulfilling and I felt truly appreciated for my contributions. It was a wrong decision to move on at that time and, therefore, I sincerely wish to rejoin.

I had been a dedicated employee of your company for four years and parted with all the due formalities completed. I hope you will allow me to return to work. I eagerly look forward to your response and hope to serve again.

Thanks and regards,

Aravind Adiga”
