Your cover letter should be professional, concise and personal. The goal is to convince hiring managers to pick up your resume over all the other that are pouring in. Explain who you are, what you have to offer, why what you have to offer is valuable to them, and how you both will gain from your selection.
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.
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.
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.
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.
