Samples of A Cover Letter



Samples of A Cover Letter : 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.



Cover Letters - Who Needs Them?


In this page, we will find out why cover letters are so important to a successful job search. Then we will learn how your cover letter can add value to your resume.


The Job Search Club talks with a corporate recruiter.


It was 6 p.m. and time for us to lead another session of our Job Search Club. Our members came from varying circumstances. But we all had one goal in common: to take a step forward in our careers by moving to a new job. We were able to come together because the basic principles of a good job search held true for all of us. At the same time, we would discuss the differing application of those principles to the varying circumstances of our JSC members.


Today we were beginning a series of workshops on cover letters. We were fortunate to have her from Mumbai present to share her experiences as a corporate recruiter. As usual, we opened up with questions. She, who was looking for a new job after five years with the same employer, wasn't shy about jumping right in.


SHE : We're going to be spending a number of sessions on cover letters. Why? Any employer we are interested in will get our resume. It seems to me that should be enough. So why bother with cover letters?


RAM : There are three basic reasons: First, it is expected. An unsolicited resume by itself, sometimes called a naked resume, isn't very likely to be read. Because the cover letter is a bit of a hassle, having one has become a screening mechanism in itself. Second, a good cover letter will add value to your resume, increasing the chances you'll get a positive response. Third, your cover letter is an example of your written communication, a critical skill in today's working world.


Laura : I don't like hurdles for the heck of it. But I can live with the first reason you gave. It's your second point that troubles me. If your resume is well-written, what value can the cover letter add?


That's a good question. 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.
