Your cover letter should have the following sections:
Your Contact Information
City, State, Zip Code
Employer Contact Information (if you have it)
City, State, Zip Code
Dear Mr. Smith:
The first paragraph of your letter should include information on why you are writing. Mention the position you are applying for and where you found the job listing. Include the name of a mutual contact, if you have one.
I am submitting my resume in response to your ad for an entry-level
Game Developer, which was posted on Monster.com.
I received your information from Jim Beam, an employee with your company. He mentioned you were looking for an entry-level Game Developer and I would like to submit my resume for your consideration.
The next section of your cover letter should describe what you have to offer the employer. Mention specifically how your qualifications match the job you are applying for. Remember, you are interpreting your resume, not repeating it.
Customize it to the job description! Online applications will be “screened” for matching words. Which means you’ll get auto-rejected before anyone sees your information.
I have 7 years of experience as a Registered Nurse and recently graduated from Northern University with a BSN in Nursing. As part of my education, I studied community nursing, leadership, policy, ethics, critical care, gerontology, health promotion, disease prevention, informatics, and other key nursing concepts. I also had the privilege of managing several projects and team experiences.
Conclude your cover letter by thanking the employer for considering you for the position. Include information on how you will follow up.
Thank you for taking the time to review my qualifications. Please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
