The Success Story



This experienced HR professional got a job thanks to the cover letter below. It’s clear and concise.

Notice her unique approach at answering the hiring manager’s “questions.” Right off the bat, the reader can see how she meets — and in some cases, surpasses — their needs in a candidate.

Dear Mr. XXXXX :

I am enclosing a copy of my résumé for your review in your search for an HR Generalist. After reviewing your requirements, I have summarized my background for you.



May we meet for an interview? I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about your requirements and to present my qualifications in person. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,

XXXX XXXXX
