Job Application Cover Letter

Job Application Cover Letter :

Sometimes pragmatic constraints will leave you with two options. A short cover letter or no letter at all. In that case you could use a quickie letter like one of these.

Mr. Tom Jones
Vice President-Administration
Yo- Yo Products, Inc.
3 Bay State Center
Chicopee, MA 01006

Dear Mr. Jones,

My neighbor, Myrna Olde, told me that your assistant at Yo-Yo Products is plarming to retire soon. Good people are hard to replace. Could we discuss the possibility that I might be a good successor? I will call you next week to see what you think. In the meantime, my resume is enclosed for your review.

Thank you.

The cover letter adds to your attractiveness as a candidate in three ways.

Highlighting : You can give those positive characteristics of greatest interest to a particular employer more prominence in the cover letter than you did in your resume.

Reframing : Through your cover letter, you can put some of your experiences in a frame of reference that more closely meets the needs of the employer.

New material : Your cover letter can include material of interest to an employer that would be difficult to present in a resume. Your motivation for wanting to work for that particular company is an example.
