Dear Mrs. Parker,

Since my sophomore year at university, DELL has been an industry trend-setting company which I would love to work for. Luckily, yesterday my colleague Marko Marletti (one of the organization's employees) called me in a hurry to inform me of DELL`s brand new Graduates program. I'm delighted to express my motivation for the entry-level ICT Assistant role.

As a recent graduate from the University of San Francisco with a B.S. in Computer Science, I would bring to the team my strong knowledge of Microsoft SQL, MS Dynamics, MS SharePoint, as well as Linux systems. Moreover, I am very passionate about backend coding, and last year I completed with excellence one of the most prestigious boot camps in San Fransisco - Nucamp.

Almost throughout my whole study, I have been working part-time as a System administrator, as I aspired and was eager to get both theoretical and practical knowledge at the same time. In this role I gained invaluable experience in server maintenance, assistance in the roll-out of Release & Deployment campaigns, setting up and configuring desktop computers, peripherals, and accounts, and assigning security levels. I built proficiency to efficiently troubleshoot a variety of technical issues for staff and end-users.

I feel ready to rise up to the challenge of an ICT Assistant role at DELL. Enclosed, please find my resume, which further illustrates my skills and educational background. Should you have any follow-up questions, I`d be happy to answer them. I look forward to further discussing this great opportunity and DELL`s needs from the Graduates program.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Career Change Cover Letter

Dear [Mr./Mx./Ms.] [Manager’s Name],

I’m writing to you regarding the currently open role of Project manager at Max Legal, which I came across on your company website. After carefully reviewing the job description, I was delighted to find out that my academic accomplishments and professional background meet all of the necessary requirements.

For the last 5 years, I have had the chance to acquire invaluable experience as a Project assistant in a multinational organization like Hewlett-Packard. I have established myself as the go-to trusted advisor for Project managers and other functional experts regarding

Project documentation excellence. My daily coordination and interaction with the big teams regarding readiness for bid submission have let me in on many insider's secrets from the PM field. One of my biggest achievements is getting the award PMO Employee of the year in 2020.

I am passionate about applying my PM expertise from the streamlined processes in a large corporation to the exciting Project manager role in Max Legal.

In addition, I am certain I can bring a high-value proposition to the team, as I have made sure to accompany my practical experience with getting PMP (Project Management Professional) certified last year. During my study, I have strategically focused my coursework and practical assignments in the following areas:

  • Project plan design
  • Project resources designation
  • Scope of work and Work breakdown structure
  • Budget plan
  • Stakeholders management
  • Project monitoring and project lifecycle management

Lastly, my colleagues say that I have naturally grown to the role of Project manager and I am excited to bring this expertise on-board.

I would be delighted to have an opportunity to personally interview you. Please accept the enclosed resume and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I appreciate your time and consideration.

Dear [Mr./Ms./Mx. Recipient’s name] / [Scholarship Committee],

My name is [NAME] and I have recently graduated with my Master in Child Psychology from UVIC - Universitat Central de Catalunya. I have found out about the Scholarship from my professor at Clinical Psychopathology - Dra. Jane Peterson, who believes I would be a great match for your Scholarship program at Child Care Association “Anima”.

Personally, I feel very passionate about working with children with special needs and enabling them to become more autonomous in daily life and self-empowered. Hence, it would be an honor for me, should I be selected for the Scholarship position of Child Assistance Counselor at Association “Anima”. In addition to my in-depth academic knowledge in the field, my value proposition to the organization is also in having 3+ years of Volunteer experience as an Assistant teacher of disadvantaged children via several ERASMUS+ international projects.

Thanks to this work I have practiced with the kid's modalities like Play therapy, Art & Music therapy, and English lessons. Apart from becoming proficient in structuring and successfully delivering Didactical lessons, I have built the necessary instrumentarium of skills to create safe emotional connections and rapport with the children.

As you can see, my expertise is a very close match to what the beneficiaries of Association “Anima” - children with disabilities, need.

Should you require references for my credentials and suitability, please do let me know.

I am really inspired by this opportunity to make a difference in the life of children and looking forward to further discussing it with you.

[Sincerely / Best / Best regards],

Frequently Asked Questions

What should a cover letter include?

Your cover letter should include your biggest accomplishments in your career. Don’t just restate what you already have in your resume –– rather, focus on one or two accomplishments that are relevant to the job you’re applying for and expand from there. Your cover letter should have a header, salutation, opening paragraph, body paragraph, a call to action, and a closer.

What is the best cover letter template for 2024?

All of the Enhancv cover letter templates have been updated to match current trends and make you stand out in the 2024 job market. Choose a template based on the company you’re applying for. Go with a more conservative one if you’re applying for positions in the finance and legal sectors. You can use a more creative cover letter template if you’re applying for a developer/tech job.

How is a cover letter different from a resume?

In a resume you focus on your career journey, only highlighting key achievements. A cover letter focuses only on one or two highly relevant achievements and serves as a way to cement your experience and tell your professional story in a memorable way.

How long should my cover letter be?

The ideal cover letter length should be around 300 and 450 words. Read our in-depth guide on cover letter length for more details.

Where can I see cover letter examples for my job?

We have a database of over 500 cover letter examples that you can explore. Find your job by browsing our cover letter examples page.

Should I have a matching cover letter and resume?

Yes. Enhancv offers a cover letter builder as well as a resume builder tool. You can choose from hundreds of resume templates that will match your cover letter, or you can use a resume example instead. Using matching resume and cover letter designs will help hiring managers remember your application.

Can I use a cover letter for my CV?

Sure thing. Cover letters can be used both with CVs and resumes alike. You can build a matching CV with Enhancv using our CV builder.

Do I need a unique cover letter for every job?

It’s good practice to have a cover letter tailored to each position you apply for. That being said, you don’t have to rewrite the whole cover letter –– just the parts that aren’t relevant. You can create countless cover letters and resumes using Enhancv. And our dashboard lets you keep track jobs you’ve applied for or even find new opportunities.

What do I do if I can’t write a good cover letter?

You can always use our cover letter generator to create one and beat the writer’s block. If you still aren’t sure about how good your cover letter is, then you can hire a career counselour to help you create a strong cover letter and resume.

Can my cover letter be an email?

If you’re applying via email it’s always a good idea to have your cover letter and resumes as attached PDF files. It’s more professional, so use the email as an easy way to quickl introduce yourself but don’t feature your full cover letter in the email body.

Is it free to use Enhancv’s cover letter and resume builder?

Enhancv has a free plan, as well as a 7-day trial period. You can use both our resume builder and cover letter builder for free. Check our pricing plans for more details.
