A Sample Employer Request Letter 1

Dear [Boss]

To help provide our clients & candidates with the most current professional knowledge and skills in the industry, I would like to attend TechRecruit a leading one day conference to educate talent acquisition and recruitment professionals on innovations to attract talent across all industries. It’s about the technology used in recruitment. There are two conferences this year; LAXTechRecruit and MidWestTechRecruit.

TechRecruit offers over 8 hrs of panels and talks to choose from with over 35 top industry speakers. It is a day-long learning curriculum packed with actionable content. There are three tracks for c-suite, managers and practitioners. The pricing includes access to any of the sessions & panels plus the keynote address by legendary Lou Adler. Rates increase the week of the conference so we need to register soon. If we send the whole team we get a discount!

Attending the Conference will enhance my professional knowledge and skills, which will enable me to provide better care for my hiring managers and clients. I will be able to pass on much of what I learn to my co-workers and (your company) will promote it’s commitment to helping employees flourish through education and learning programs.

Here’s the website for more information: www.TechRecruit.io

Thank you for saying YES!

Sincerely,

(you)
