...Sample Cover Letters December 20, 2006 Ms. Elizabeth Novak Recruiting Coordinator PricewaterhouseCoopers Management Consulting 11 Madison Avenue, 18th Floor New York, NY 10010 Dear Ms. Novak: I had the pleasure of having lunch with Will Melson after the September 22nd Duke Corporate Presentation. I spoke with him again after the December 6th PricewaterhouseCoopers corporate visit where I learned even more about your firm. Mr. Melson’s compelling description of PwC couple with my desire to work in such a dynamic environment convinced me to apply for PricewaterhouseCoopers Analyst position. I sharpened my leadership and decision-making skills while supporting operations for an industrial supply company over three summers. The environment was fast-paced and intense, thus I was constantly analyzing data to determine the root causes of given problems. I would then identify and evaluate all possible alternatives before suggesting solutions. Most of these decisions had to be quick, concise and clearly conveyed to people at all organizational levels. As a result of my efforts, the company was able to save over $25K in material costs. During my tenure, I was often praised for thinking about problems innovatively and for never losing sight of the “big picture.” These skills will definitely aid me in consulting. At Duke, I continue to look for leadership opportunities within a team setting. In the Small Business Consulting Program, I currently lead a team of four classmates redesigning...

...Dear Mr. Demers, I hope you are doing well. I am compiling my portfolio to help me in the job application process. As you know, preparing this portfolio so that it stands out when applying for future positions requires several documents that prove my strong work ethic. I would very much appreciate your recommendation to include in my portfolio. I enjoyed my experience working at Spectrum Analytical Inc., as it broadened my scope of how a laboratory functions in a practical manner, compared to chemistry lab at school. I know that you can vouch for me in how quickly I picked up understanding the standard operating procedures and that I respected the safety aspect of working with toxic chemicals. Also, that my main task was performing water extraction experiments in preparation of analysis for various contaminants. I insist on you writing this letter of recommendation because you witnessed me work in the laboratory everyday and oversaw my progress as a lab technician. With the experience I gained, I am now confident that I can do several necessary tasks in a laboratory setting such as exchanging methylene chloride tanks, properly disposing of hazardous wastes, and documenting experiment results. I am submitting this portfolio to Cambrian Innovation in Boston, MA. It is a newly developing company that specializes in renewable energy. I am applying for a similar position as a lab technician performing research......

...Before writing a cover letter, its important to understand how it can help or hurt you. In the internship application process a cover letter is your first impression. It's an opportunity to tell a perspective employer why you’re the perfect fit for their internship and their office and just as importantly, a cover letter is an opportunity to tell an employer you don't care about their position, by writing a sloppy or template cover letter. Some valuable cover letter topics include, explaining why a position interests you, what you bring to the table, how you would be a great fit, or something unique about you that makes you different from the hundreds of other candidates. The ultimate goal of your cover letter is to get the reader excited to meet you for an interview to learn more. To summarize the points above, ingredients needed to make a successful cover letter are: Header with contact information: Including a header with your contact information on the cover letter makes you look professional and ensures your information will be easy to find. You should also consider including this header on all documents you’re submitting when applying, it demonstrates your professionalism and acts as an opportunity to brand yourself to the perspective employer.  Who is your audience? Try to find the person who is in charge of intern hiring and address your cover letter and resume to them. Statistics show you have a better chance of being hired if you know who’s doing the hiring......

...COVER LETTER SAMPLES Your Name Your Street Address City, State, Zip Date Employer’s Name Title Company Street Address City, State, Zip Dear Mr. or Ms. Last Name: Your opening paragraph should briefly introduce you and your interest in the company. If you are aware of a specific position or opening, refer to it now. This paragraph should also be used to mention the names of individuals you have met from the company (e.g., at the EIS, company event or other networking event), or the individual who directed you to this person. Cite other research that prompted you to write, such as a recent article on the company or a positive networking interaction. The last line in this paragraph should give a summary statement of who you are and why you are a strong fit for the position. Your middle paragraph (or two) should consist of specific examples from your background that would be of greatest interest to the company and consequently create the “notion of fit.” Do not just make broad generalizations about your skill set – any assertions about your skills have to be backed up with specific examples of how/why you have developed those skills. Focus on your skills and accomplishments and how they could contribute to the company, but do not simply restate what is on your resume. Demonstrate that you know about the organization and the industry. If you are a career changer, it is essential to clearly state your transferable skills from previous experience that......

...All cover letters should: Explain why you are sending a resume. Don't send a resume without a cover letter. Don't make the reader guess what you are asking for; be specific: Do you want a summer internship opportunity, or a permanent position at graduation; are you inquiring about future employment possibilities? Tell specifically how you learned about the position or the organization — a flyer posted in your department, a web site, a family friend who works at the organization. It is appropriate to mention the name of someone who suggested that you write. Convince the reader to look at your resume. The cover letter will be seen first. Therefore, it must be very well written and targeted to that employer. Call attention to elements of your background — education, leadership, experience — that are relevant to a position you are seeking. Be as specific as possible, using examples. Reflect your attitude, personality, motivation, enthusiasm, and communication skills. Provide or refer to any information specifically requested in a job advertisement that might not be covered in your resume, such as availability date, or reference to an attached writing sample. Indicate what you will do to follow-up. In a letter of application — applying for an advertised opening — applicants often say something like "I look forward to hearing from you." However, if you have further contact info (e.g. phone number) and......
