Many people seeking employment have a difficult time when writing their cover letters. Your cover letter is just as important as your resume.
If it fails to catch the employer’s attention, chances are that your resume will not even receive the average 20 seconds employers spend on job applications.
Your cover letter should tell the employer why you are sending your resume to him or her, who you are and what benefit the organization will have from hiring you. Here is a sample resume cover letter.
410 Shrewd Lane,
Mrs. Betty Builder,
Dear Mrs. Builder,
I am writing this letter in response to your advertisement in the Daily City Post for an architect.
You will find my resume enclosed detailing my five years experience as a commercial building architect as well as ten years experience designing personal property.
Throughout my fifteen years of experience, I have been able to meet and surpass my clients’ expectations.
Being part of the team that designed and constructed the Great Centre was a fulfilling experience as I learnt to confer with my colleagues who were all specialized in different areas and learn from them, referring to their expertise when the need arose.
I have been the assistant chief architect at Bond Contractors for the past five years. Leading design teams and construction projects have been part of my job description.
I look forward to meeting you face to face to discuss the position in more detail. Thank you for your consideration.
