When writing a cover letter, it is important to take the hiring manager’s thought process into consideration.
Working at any position requires grit and conscientiousness, and if you can show a hiring manager that you possess both in a cover letter, success will be at your feet.
The problem with most cover letters that hiring managers receive is that they are all the same. They say the same things, making hollow promises that hiring managers know will never be true.
It is best if you do not tread on these lines. Making sure that your cover letter is a class apart from all the others is imperative. How will you know what other cover letters hold?
If you do a little bit of research on the web, you will know that there are hundreds of cover letters that say the same thing over and over again. Do not emulate them. Instead, have a look at the following sample to gain ideas:
Childcare Volunteer Cover Letter Example

Mr. Joseph Walker
Human Resource Manager
2500 N Marietta Avenue
Mobile, AL 68173
Dear Mr. Walker:
Through your website, I found out that Kids’ Peace is looking to hire volunteers for 6 months, to provide assistance with their child care programs. I have volunteered my services for similar work last year, and I am sure that you will be able to use my services and expertise at your facility as well.
Having worked in a capacity that is disarmingly similar to the position that you are offering, I will be an instant hit at Kids’ Peace. It is not just volunteer experience that makes me a good choice to hire, but an inherent love for children and their wellbeing, which makes this work worth my while.
As someone who has great love to give, and can easily handle the challenges associated with childcare, I am positive that you will not regret your decision to hire me. In my last volunteer position, I was asked to lead a childcare program designed for the stimulation of children’s social, emotional, academic, and physical development, which was considered highly successful by the management. I am sure that I can help your organization run a similar one, placing all my energies and focus on the wellbeing and safety of the children.
I will call you soon so that we can decide on a mutually convenient time to meet. Until then, please feel free to contact me.
