It introduces you and your resume to the employer in a professional manner and it is a fact that almost every job position needs an employment cover letter forwarded with their resumes.

Of course every employment cover letter is going to be different for every type of employment you are going to apply for and the free sample cover letter we have as an example is for an administrative role.
There are also a lot of free example cover letters on the internet as well so don't be afraid to look around for free samples that can help you write one, but please do not copy the examples.

Remember to make your resume cover letter your own and emphasize the important parts of your career and why you think in brief you are the right candidate for the position; use the sample as an example to help you.

In employment a cover letter format usually starts out with the date that you have written and completed your cover letter, then the name and address of the person of whom you are sending your resume and cover letter to, then you will address the reader as below in the free example cover letter.

Then there is the body of your cover letter, the interesting parts for example, you're selling yourself to be the best person to recruit and interview out of all the people looking for employment.
There has to be good introduction that captivates the reader into reading and sampling more and convinces them that you are the best candidate.

You must always state (for example in the free sample below) which position you are applying for, if you don't state it how will they know.
Give them a very brief summary of your employment, then why you feel you are the best for the position, then list your key strengths (as an example in the free sample letter)
Then ask and seek the chance to have an interview and discuss why you are the best, then thank them for reading your cover letter and that you look forward to hearing from them.
