(Don’t make a hiring manager guess which position you’re applying for if it is a listed position, or which one you’re interested in if it is an exploratory letter.) Start the letter off strong by giving a solid example or metric that illustrates how your past accomplishments will be an asset to the employer in the future.
Remember, you only have a few seconds to capture the hiring manager’s attention!
I am hardworking and analytical and I like taking initiative.
In the past year I have accomplished a lot: I've always believed in the quality of your jams and have enjoyed them since I was seven years old.

Smith Human Resources Manager Mom's Marmalades, Inc.123 Main Street New York, NY 10000Dear Mr.Other features—with examples—of an effective e-cover letter are: Include the job title and a branding statement here.In the first one or two sentences, concisely spell out the obvious reason why you are writing.The first time I ever learned about the concept of a cover letter, I distinctly remember how it was explained to me: “It’s like your resume, but longer.” The reason that moment sticks out to me so much? Yes, your cover letter should include some of the key skills, traits, and experience highlighted in your resume.But copying and pasting from there into your cover letter will most definitely turn recruiters off.Unless you’re submitting your résumé and cover letter on a job submission website, chances are the employer has asked that you email your application directly.In that case, you can either attach your cover letter as a PDF to the email as you would your résumé, or you can include your cover letter in the body of the email.I would love to be a part of the specialty foods business, especially at Mom's Marmalades. I will give you a call next week to see if we could set up a time to discuss my becoming a part of your company for the summer. Feel free to call me at (212) 555-5555 or send email to [email protected] Don't use a tiny font just to fit everything on one page; 10- or 12-point type is best.Write clearly and avoid hyphenated words at the ends of lines.
