Dear [Recipient Name]:
In the first paragraph, tell the employer why you’re writing to them in two or three sentences. State the
position you are applying for and specify why you are interested in working for the employer.
In the next one or two paragraphs, outline your qualifications and match them to the requirements of the
position. Try to make two or three solid points using specific examples from your own employment history.
Showcase how you are an asset to the company, rather than explain your own personal employment goals.
In the final paragraph, include a positive statement or question that will cause the employer to want to take
action. Make this closing paragraph between 2-4 sentences. Direct the employer to the enclosed resume
and make your availability known for an interview. It’s very important to finish off by thanking the employer
for their time and consideration.
