Cover Letter Samples
Editor's Note

WorkBloom features over 200 professionally-written cover letter samples.  They are listed by industry in the grey box at the right of the page.  We have included these cover letter samples to our resources section to show you that there is no one way to write a cover letter.  In fact, there are as many ways to write a cover letter as there are applicants.  As you go through the cover letter examples that are featured in this section, pay attention to the following:
  • How were the cover letter samples structured?  How many paragraphs did the cover letter have?  What information was included in each paragraph?
  • What was your impression of the applicant when you finished reading the cover letter sample?  Did he or she give the impression of being dynamic, competent, professional or boring?
  • What information did the writer choose to emphasize or address in the cover letter?
  • What information was omitted from the cover letter?
  • How as the information presented?  Were bullet points used?
  • What did the writer do to capture the reader's attention?  How was the introduction?
  • How did the cover letter end?

The above is not an exhaustive list of things to look for, but gives you a good idea of where to start.  As you look at these cover letter examples, keep in mind that a cover letter rarely, if ever, stands alone.  It is always accompanied by a resume.  The goal of the cover letter is not to repeat what can be found in the resume, but to complement it.

Do not be afraid to be yourself as you write your cover letter.  That is the only way to differentiate yourself from other applicants.  As you go through the cover letter examples in this section you will notice that applicants that choose to play it a little too safe tend to pass as boring.  That is the last impression that you want to convey.

In addition to cover letter samples, WorkBloom's Cover Letter Center also features cover letter tips.  Do not hesitate to read the articles in that section.  They will shed more light on the cover letter writing process.

Enough said.  Good luck!
