The cover letter example below is that of a property manager who thrives in a diverse and fast-paced management environment. His strengths include client relations, management operations and creative problem-solving. The second paragraph of the cover letter alludes to the fact that he is the owner of his own property management company, although he is now seeking to go back on payroll. If there is one weakness about this cover letter is that it does not refer to specific accomplishments. For someone who boasts having done so much, there should be mention of at least few concrete things.
