Cover Letter Sample

Posted: December 3rd, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Quick Blurbs | No Comments »

When I was looking for work as a designer I used a long, drawn-out cover letter that got little results. But when I shortened it (after MUCH experimenting) and just gave them some short “teaser” (meaning I left more out then I put in) copy it worked like gangbusters.

Here is an example of what to say, short and simple:

I enclose my resume in response to your recent advertisement for Part-Time Adjunct Faculty positions at GCC. My experience is most relevant to electronic/digital imaging and Web design.

As my resume shows, I offer over 12 years of experience in marketing and design for large companies like Xerox and ABB to smaller, more dynamic organizations like Meansbusiness and Freshdesign, Inc. I have worked in all phases of design and communications (including partnership alliances) from initial concept to final product in channels as diverse as print, radio, web and multimedia.

You can reach me at my office during business hours or at home during evenings and weekends. Thank you for your consideration.
