I would love to be a part of the specialty foods business, especially at Mom's Marmalades. I will give you a call next week to see if we could set up a time to discuss my becoming a part of your company for the summer. Feel free to call me at (212) 555-5555 or send email to [email protected]
You should have an introduction paragraph, a paragraph about yourself, and a closing paragraph. For the paragraph about yourself you can highlight skills you have acquired through an internship (check online resume examples on how to do it) or volunteer work while you were in college. Just because you are not employed does not mean you do not have skills.Leave the color accents for your resume if you so desire. You want to create a letter that has a formal feel to it.Generally you want to list your name and address first.I am hardworking and analytical and I like taking initiative.In the past year I have accomplished a lot: I've always believed in the quality of your jams and have enjoyed them since I was seven years old.The cover letter is another way of introducing yourself to a potential employer.What it says about you can be the difference between getting in the door and missing your chance.One page is plenty to get your point across to your potential employer.Before you start writing your cover letter you need to research the company where you are applying.The most important thing to keep in mind is that your cover letter should be individualized.You are applying for different jobs, your cover letters should show that.
