❖ State facts and be honest because you have to prove during your interview what you written in your cover letter.
❖ Review your Loan Officer cover letter for typos and grammatical errors before printing.
❖ Avoid addressing indirectly and using generic statements like “To whom it may concern”. Instead address your letter directly to the hiring manager.
❖ Keep your covering letter simple & concise. Use clear readable font and standard format.
❖ Use catchy action verbs to present your skills and abilities. Instead of saying ‘responsibilities included’, explain how competent you are in performing those responsibilities.
❖ Include your contact details accurately. Use your personal address – not the official one.
❖ Take pride in yourself without seeming overconfident and arrogant.

Dear Ms. Smith:
Ever-Bank’s dedication and consistent efforts towards empowerment of underprivileged people across USA has always inspired me. This is why, while reading through your advertisement on the job-finder for the post of Loan officer, I am sure Ever-Bank is the right place for me to work. I possess the right talent to contribute considering my relevant education and extensive experience in a similar position.
Through my work at ABC Company, I learned the basic traits of educating and guiding applicants regarding loan process, answering questions and resolving related problems. This experience boosted my communication skills to a great extent. I further polished my skills in maintaining high level of market and loan variation knowledge to offer applicants better services.
Furthermore, I am highly skilled in utilizing the Automated Underwriting System (AUS) for loan process and approvals, and able to use of oracle based company databases. I possess the demonstrated ability to multi-task and well organize work in a fast paced environment. Interested in establishing myself in Ever-Bank as an experienced loan officer, having a lot to offer, I have enclosed my resume for your review.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications, experience, and interest with you in a meeting. You can contact me any time on the contact numbers provided on my resume. Besides, I’ll call you after two weeks to follow-up. Thank you for your time and consideration.
