Dear Mr. Woodward,

I am writing to you to request a transfer of my position as an editor from Seattle, Washington, to Portland Oregon within the company Social Editing. My father is now in need of constant care from my family, and we have to be in Portland to take care of him. Because of this, it is best for me to work at the Portland office of Social Editing.

Working at the Seattle office has been my pleasure since my first day there. In the five years that I have worked for Social Editing, I have felt my knowledge of both content management and social media marketing grow and expand. I look forward to continuing to progress in this profession at the Portland office.

I am sure I will fit in well with the Portland staff. I have met Karen Oswald, Bobby Finner, and Lamar Totem at company parties and elsewhere. I have bonded with them and they have told how great the Portland office atmosphere is. It seems comparable to the Seattle office in its camaraderie. I know that my skill set will work as well in the Portland office as it did in the Seattle office.

Below is my resume for viewing. Thank you for considering my request, and I hope to hear about your decision soon.

Best regards,

Bob Allas
Content Specialist, Social Editing
Seattle Office
