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.

Mr. Mike Matters,
Camping Tents
6667 Slacky Circle
Any Town, MN 55555

Dear Mr. Matters:

I am graduating in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services with a minor in Sociology from Anyuniversity University, California. I am responding to your counseling position with your company because Camping Tents has established a reputation for helping hundreds of local families.
Growing up in a low-income home, I have learned to appreciate many things that so many people take for granted. I earned a partial scholarship for college and paid the rest of my tuition working at a local shelter.

I understand Camping Tents is dedicated to turning challenges into opportunities and change into growth. This growth has resulted in a reputation for high quality and strong community relationships. This is the type of organization where I am confident my skills and knowledge would be best suited.

Some of my skills and knowledge include:

  • Ability to work effectively as part of a team
  • Experience with under privileged children
  • Interpersonal communication skills
  • Strong public speaking skills
  • Caring and empathetic

Although my resume provides a summary of my background and experiences, I would like to meet with you in person to discuss any available opportunities with Camping Tents. I can be reached at (555) 555-5555 or

Thank you for your time and consideration.
