The Cover Letter for Resume is a professional letter that will be attached to an applicant’s curriculum vitae in applying for any job position.  By its very name it is obvious that it is intended to be read before the curriculum vitae which is essentially just a skeleton of an applicant’s personal, educational, and employment information.  The Cover Letter for Resume should provide the meat in which the bare facts contained in the resume can sufficiently lean on.

Mr. A Employer Recruitment Manager Name of Company Address

Dear Mr. Employer,

I read your advertisement for a Specialized Marketing Executive with much interest as I instantly connected my personal qualifications with your company’s requirements.

I have always been people and product-oriented. This is about being able to solidly focus on the strengths of the product assigned to me for handling and effectively market them to target customers. Even while still in the university, my career advisers have consistently recognized these same strengths. The chance to develop these skills further was provided in my current position as a marketing assistant for ABC Company, specifically in their Electronic Products Division.

I am particularly interested to be part of your company primarily due to its reputation for providing extensive training and personal development opportunities to all your employees. It is my belief that with my product and people skills, I would be an important addition to your marketing force. This is especially so with the simultaneous marketing blitz you are currently holding.

I have recently finished my MBA Course in Marketing which required me to conduct a full blown marketing campaign from scratch. Such campaign project has been rated excellent and has actually been made a model for student reference. This is just one of the many accomplishments I can cite to show how serious I am with regards to this line of work.

I will be available for interview any time from March 15 to 30 wherein I hope I can further discuss my work experience. My resume has been attached for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you the soonest.

Sincerely, Signature Letter Writer

    It’s a good cover letter. Although I have noticed that each paragraph on the body always starts with an “I”…

    • Teresa Martinez says:

      It was actually an intentional play on emphasis thus the consistent placement on the first sentence of every paragraph. Business writing discourages starting every sentence with “I” thus it can be a tricky thing to try this style especially when the variation required is not supplied by the rest of the letter. Sometimes, we need to deviate from the standards a little to be noticed by the employee without sacrificing the quality of the letter.
