A cover letter for account manager resume is not a job application – in fact, it is a short and specific letter that is always supposed to accompany your resume, folio or any documents that you send to a prospective employer.
Make your account manager cover letter as unique as possible. Send your cover letter to the individual who has the authority to hire you (not “‘To Whom It May Concern” or “Dear Sir / Madam”).
Keep away from sending a standard ‘one-size-fits-all’ cover letter.
See the sample account manager cover letter below to get a better idea.
