A Basic Cover Letter Template

Explain Yourself

Example:

As a highly motivated and conscientious project manager, I am confident that I can be the ideal candidate for the Construction Manager position at ABC Properties. Over the past 8 years, I have successfully managed capital improvements on several major Bay Area commercial properties, including scope, identification, tracking, quality control, coordination and contract negotiation. I feel that I would bring the same level of integrity and professionalism to your organization.

Address Your Skills

Example:

My background working in a team setting, analyzing, defining and documenting requirements for data and workflow processes as well as installing and testing programs, provided me with a broad knowledge of Unix-based systems and MFG Pro. In addition, my experience with Progress development and MS Access means that I could hit the ground running at ABC company.

Wrap Things Up

Example:

The accompanying resume provides a snap shot of my skills and achievements. I look forward to meeting with you face-to-face, learning more about your objectives and offering useful suggestions as to how I can be of service.

Follow Up & Close

Example:

I will follow up with you in a few days to discuss the possibility of an interview. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at 555.555.5555 or by email at pjones@ImYourCandidate.com. I look forward to speaking with you and appreciate your consideration.
