Cover Letters

Resume cover letter writing tips, plus samples, examples, templates and formats are linked below. Even better, there are links to download a preformatted cover letter sample, example and template in a file format suitable for editing in most word processors. They're free from us, no strings attached, and listed first below.

Always include a cover letter with each of your resumes. If possible, tailor each cover letter to the description of the job for which you're applying, by emphasizing your matching skills and experience. A cover letter might not land you a job, but it might land you an interview.

Besides, employers expect you to send cover letters to introduce yourself and your resume. Even so, when written correctly, they are not as much about you, as they are about what you can do for employers. More writing tips are linked below.

See the Resume and Letter Center for sample cover letters written by certified, professional writers.
