I need a cover letter based of my resume in this format
Your Contact Information
City, State Zip Code
Your Phone Number
The first section or header of your cover letter should include information on how the employer can contact you. If you have contact information for the employer, include that below. Otherwise, just list your information.
Employer Contact Information
City, State Zip Code
Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:
Body of Cover Letter
The body of your cover letter lets the employer know what position you are applying for, why the employer should select you for an interview, and how you will follow up.
The first paragraph of your letter should include information on why you are writing. Mention the position you are applying for, and how you learned about it. Include the name of a mutual contact if you have one. Be clear, concise, and enthusiastic regarding your interest in the job. Your goal is to build rapport and convince the reader that they should grant the interview or appointment you will request in your final paragraph.
The next section of your cover letter should describe what you have to offer the employer. Make strong connections between your abilities and the employer’s needs. Mention specifically how your skills and experience match the job you are applying for. Remember, you are interpreting your resume, not repeating it. Try to support each statement you make with a specific piece of evidence, quantifying unique achievements with percentages, numbers, or dollar figures when you can.
Use several shorter paragraphs or bullets rather than one large block of text so that your letter is easy to read. Using bullets to highlight four or five specific strengths you can offer the employer will help this information to “pop” on the
Conclude your cover letter by thanking the employer for considering you for the position and requesting a personal interview. Include information on how you will follow up. State that you will do so and indicate when (one week’s time is typical).
