Sample Cover Letters

A  well-crafted cover letter can be a powerful job-search tool. It provides a great opportunity to introduce yourself to a prospective employer while connecting your skills and experience with the job for which you’re applying. The ultimate goal of a cover letter is to pique an employer’s interested enough to get them to take a moment to look at your resume. To accomplish that, keep the following cover letter tips in mind as you draft your cover letter.

Make it Succinct: Typically, a cover letter should be fewer than 300 words in length, consisting of about three paragraphs and a bulleted list of three to five brief descriptions of skills, accomplishments and experience.

Make it Focused: The information you include in your cover letter should be closely connected to the skills and background the employer is looking for an a candidate. Give the job posting a quick read and then cherry pick the details of your career that are most relevant to the position.

Make it Flawless: Resist the urge to fire off your cover letter immediately after finishing it. Set it aside for a few minutes and then give it a good proofread. Also, it never hurts to have another person give it a read. As you proofread, be sure to confirm that you’ve included your name and contact information, and that it is correct.
