There is a great chance that the type of cover letter that you have written is ordinary for a hiring manager.
Hiring managers have great experience where cover letters are concerned as that is what they do all day – read cover letters. If you do not give them something new, your chances of being considered for a job diminish significantly.
An Accounts Receivable Clerk cover letter’s basic purpose in its short life is to communicate an applicant’s abilities and qualifications, in as little space as possible. If it doesn’t do this, there is no point in spending so much time and effort in writing one.
Focus on what you have to offer to a hiring manager, rather than what he or she can do for you. It is an unsaid thing that you too will benefit from the job, but the only thing you need to be vocal about at this point is your contribution.
What follows is a cover letter sample which will help you write your own:
