  • You can go to and read all kinds of cover letter examples for different jobs. You may not find the exact job you're applying for, but it might help

  • Try a cover letter instead

  • How about something such as. I have experience in (whatever you want to do for the company that will benefit the company), and I appreciate your considering my application.

  • My advice is to please make sure that whatever note you send uses proper grammar. As someone who has reviewed many resumes and cover letters, the ones that do not use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling and consistent formatting get either tossed aside or shuffled to the bottom of the list. It is a matter of respect to the person that you are asking to hire you. And, remember that the spellchecker doesn't catch everything (e.g., your vs. you're, their vs. they're). It is really good if you can do some research so you can find out who the person is who is going to be handling the resumes so that you can address your letter to him or her personally. As a previous poster suggested, do some searches on the web to find sample cover letters. In these hard economic times, give yourself every advantage over the competition that you can! Good luck!

  • When you email your resume, what you have is fine. Also include your phone number at the bottom in case your resume does not go thru, then they contact you and let you know they didn't get it. Email should be very short and sweet... They aren't looking at that as a cover letter.
