Free Cover Letters

The cover or application letter is an important tool in the job search process. The cover letter is the first page with the resume as the second. The purpose of combining the cover letter and resume is to spark the employer's interest and to be invited for an interview or informational meeting. To write an effective cover letter you need to take time to research and write an original letter. You should tailor each letter to be specific to each employer and reflect your knowledge of the employer's needs. Researching the organization and opportunity before you write will make this task much easier.

Mrs. Mary Matters,

Any Town, MN 55555

Dear Mrs. Matters:
With this cover letter I am applying for the position of Family Nanny in your Sacramento home. I found your need posted on the site.

It would be my pleasure to help care for your son in your home. Please read my resume. You will see I have extensive experience overseeing the recreation, diet, health, education and conduct of hard working parent's children throughout the state for fifteen years.

I am also qualified to assist with aspects of their education and training, if this something you'd like. In my twenties, I taught reading, writing and math to 2nd and 3rd grade students. This was in a small Texas parochial school. Although I still enjoy teaching, I realized my love of children directed me to being a nanny.
I realize the importance of hiring the person who is "right" for your children. I would be more than happy to meet with you and discuss my abilities and your specific needs. I'm able to accommodate your schedule. Please contact me at or you can call me anytime at my cell phone number: (555) 555-5555 and we can discuss a good time to get together. 
I know that truly fine people are sought for such work. It is not common to find high quality nannies so I thank you for considering me. My resume with a list of previous family employers is enclosed for your study. Feel free to contact any of them.

I look forward to meeting you and your children.
