Writing to request a promotion to an open position within your company requires a friendly yet businesslike tone and a willingness to talk up your accomplishments. Below is a sample promotion request letter to get you started. Be sure to write formal business letters in the proper business letter format.
I have enjoyed working with the Superior Lighting team at Lamp World Plus over the past five years. The experience I have gathered has been an invaluable part of my employment at the company and I appreciate the continued opportunities to learn.
I feel that this experience qualifies me for the position of Expert Light Manager and am writing to request a promotion to that position. My years of working in the Superior Lighting department have given me extensive knowledge of the products sold by Lamp World Plus. It is my hope to be able to use this knowledge to continue to serve loyal customers.
During my time at the company, I have sold the most lamps of anyone in my department and have a positive reputation among both the staff and customers. I would welcome the opportunity to bring these skills to a new level and help Lamp World Plus grow well into the future.
In closing, I would like to reiterate how much I enjoy working for the company and my desire to see it continue to thrive. I would be more than happy to speak with you in person to discuss the Expert Light Manager position at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your consideration.
