One of the most important thing that you need to keep in mind when writing a cover letter is if you have all the information that promises to satisfy the reader – aka hiring manager.
This is only possible through research – if you know what a hiring manager is looking for, you have a good chance to satisfy him through your writing.
Do a little bit of digging. Find out who will be reading your cover letter, and go through the job description of the position for which you are applying to see what is required from you.
Cover letters may be difficult to write, but they provide you with a great chance to shine in front of a prospective employer. You have time to think when you are writing a cover letter, unlike when you are sitting across from him or her at an interview. Use this opportunity to your advantage.
The following cover letter sample will help you decide what you can write in your own:
Sample Cover Letter for Cart Associate
February 15, 2018
Mr. Brian Jones
Human Resource Manager
360 Rocky Point Avenue
Camano Island, WA09284
Dear Mr. Jones:
It was a pleasure to see your advertisement for a cart associate position at Sam’s Club, a role that I am positive is right down my alley. As a recent high school graduate, this position fits my goals perfectly, and I am sure that while working with you, I will be considered a great contributor in this regard.
A short stint in the local Tesco outlet has made me somewhat familiar with the work of a cart associate. Some knowledge of managing various carts, and assisting customers with hand baskets, along with maintaining assigned carts in a neat manner, will go a long way in making me eligible for this position.
I am a hardworking and diligent individual, which I am sure will work excellently for you. Moreover, my pleasant demeanor, and the ability to deliver excellent customer services is spot on with your requirements, as you have mentioned in your advertisement.
There is much more where this came from – I will be able to elicit more information about my suitability for a cart associate job at Sam’s Club in a personal meeting. I will call you next week to see if you have an available slot to meet with me. In the meantime, I can be reached at (000) 524-2532 for any further comment.
