Dear Mr. (full name here) or Ms. (full name here)

Open your letter with something that will command the attention—a statement that establishes you to your reader. Briefly state what job or position you are applying for.

The secondary section of your letter should be highly relevant to the position you applied for. Offer one or two (brief) paragraphs that point to why you are the best one for the job. Don’t simply summarize your resume!

Your closing paragraph can be critical to your success! You must try to initiate action! Do this by explaining what action you’ll take, such as: I will call you at such and such a time to arrange an interview. If you prefer not being so forward, end with: I look forward to your response. If you leave the calling in their hands, then always state: Please contact me to set up a good time for an interview and make certain they have your contact information at hand.

Always finish your letter with:

Sincerely yours, or Yours truly, or similar

Your signature written by hand

Your name (typewritten)

Enclosure  (you can type in “resume” after Enclosure, or leave blank)
