Paragraph #1
First state why you are writing. Indicate what you know about the company and who referred you (if there is a
personal referral). Personalize your letter by mentioning the company name and any specific knowledge you
have of the company and its products or services. State in one sentence why you’re a good match for the
position, and/or the company and/or its goals.
Paragraph #2
Describe why you’re a good match by highlighting one or two of your most significant accomplishments or
abilities. Pull inspiration from the job description itself; this is the place to sell yourself to the exact needs of
the company and state that you possess the skills and talents they seek. Remember, your goal is to
distinguish yourself from the other candidates. Do not repeat your resume. This can be done in a paragraph
or in brief summary statements.
Paragraph #3
Point out that a resume detailing your qualifications is enclosed. Thank them for their time and consideration.
If you have contact information for the contact (name, email, phone number) then close by stating that you will
follow up with them in set period of time (the next week for example). If you are writing to no one specific,
invite them to contact you at their convenience to discuss your qualifications further.
