Cover Letter Samples

Cover Letter Samples for Resumes

By Alison Doyle

When applying for a job a cover letter should be sent or posted with your resume. If you are not sure what to write, review these cover letter samples. Your cover letter should be specific to the position you are applying for, relating your skills and experience to those noted in the job posting. Your cover letter is your first (and best) chance to make a good impression!

An effective cover letter should explain the reasons for your interest in the organization and in the job you are applying for. Take the time to review sample cover letters, then make sure that your letter explains how your skills relate to the criteria listed in the job posting.

Again, it's important not to limit yourself to the ideas presented in these samples, but, do review them for ideas and suggestions. Keeping in mind that your letter should express a high level of interest and knowledge about the job you are interested in. Your cover letter will highlight the most relevant experience from your resume and connect that experience with the position you are applying for.

Your cover letter is your first, and best, chance to sell the hiring manager on your candidacy for employment so make sure it's perfect!
