Cover Letter Sample

Typically a resume is accompanied by a cover letter. The cover letter gives the job seeker a chance to articulate why they are interested in that company and tell a more focused story as to how they are qualified for the job in a more personable documentation. The cover letter is an additive needed for the recruiter to see a bit of your personality, as you explain why you are a good fit for that particular role.

Use this Cover Letter Sample as a guide to structure your cover letter.
