A cover letter is meant to serve a couple of different purposes: First, you want to ensure that you have the necessary skills and background experience for the job being applied to. Also, you want to explain why you’d like to work for the company being applied to.
List any specific results that you have obtained in previous positions with other companies.
Explain how you will fit in the environment and be a good fit for the company. Just because you want to work there may often at times not be enough so you have to be persuasive.
Dear Mr. Roffle,
As the Executive Vice President to a Utah Graphics Company, I not only exceeded our sales goal of $500,000 but I grew the company so much, they had to expand into a different location. It saddens me that I can no longer work for them because I had to move to help support my wife on her new job transition.
I could list every single one of my achievements earned at previous sales and marketing related positions, but I’ll go over some of the highlights:
I have over 10 years of marketing and sales experience, and I’m one of the best there is to go around. I would love the opportunity to work with your company and manage your firm. You won’t be disappointed and I can do the same for you that I’ve done for every other company I’ve ever worked for. Please give me a call at 492-201-2018.
