    Post Confusing Experience

    I am writing to you as my recent experience with you was unfortunately confusing which is really unexpected from a professional HR such as yourself.

    What confused me is that you have already called me for a phone interview for the marketing director role and we went through many marketing-related topics and the interview ends with you confirming that another interview should be arranged for me with the management.

    Later on, I have been informed by you that the role is put on hold for business reasons and that I will be informed once the role is opened.

    Later on, and when I saw your recent post to promote the new vacancies including the position I have been interviewed for, I followed up with you and you informed me that I am overqualified.

    I respect the company’s decision but I wish that the experience could not be confusing like what happened.

    If I am overqualified for the marketing director role so I wonder if I can be considered for a commercial director role."

    I don't know how many different ways we can tell you to stop being so confrontational and argumentative in your correspondence with these companies. You must be respectful and polite at all times, and steer clear of phrases such as "someone like you".

    It's reasonable for you to point out that the company didn't follow through on their initial offer to arrange a second interview for the marking director vacancy, because this might be useful feedback for them.

    I have added the final sentence because I assume that one of the advertised vacancies you mentioned was that of commercial director. If that's right, you should now apply for that job in the normal way. If that wasn't one of the advertised vacancies, you're wasting your time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks emsr2d2 for your suggestion.

    If you see that I am argumentative, I will greatly appreciate it if you can help me not to be like that by editing my e-mails in a way that you see it is professional. I am sure this how I would get improved.

    Could you please write my above e-mail in your own way. This really will help me a lot.

    I already rewrote it by making those corrections. No one here is going to write entire letters for you. In reality, I wouldn't write that letter at all. I'd be disappointed that the company decided I was overqualified for the initial job vacancy, and I would move on to putting all my efforts into the application for the commercial director vacancy.
