A typist’s typical responsibility is to type documents such as memos, reports and correspondence. In actuality, this is not all that they do. Typists are also required to perform some front office, customer service and clerical duties.

If you are thinking to apply for a typist position, you need a well written resume along with a supporting cover letter in order to be considered.

Here is a sample cover letter for a typist resume you can use to apply for a position in this regard.

Ms. Delia Jennings
Manager HR
423 Cool View Drive
Charleston, WV 55554


Dear Ms. Jennings:

My friend Darla James who works as a receptionist at Exova informed me regarding an available vacancy of a Typist. As I have worked in this capacity previously, I would be able to manage your large volumes of typing with accuracy.

Working at McGill Corporation as a Typist for five years has given me expertise in typing diverse documents such as reports, memos and correspondences using different word processing software on a speed of 55 words per minute. I possess the ability to type error free and articulate documents.

Furthermore, I possess exceptional comprehension of maintaining the quality of all typed documents which is why I ensure that I proofread anything I write several times before declaring it complete. Additionally, I have well honed skills in performing clerical and secretarial work which may be a typist’s secondary job responsibility.

I am positive that my skills and experience makes me an excellent candidate for this position. My resume will provide you with further details about my qualifications and I am ready for the preliminary typing test that Exova requires. I will call your office in the week of January 20 to check the status of my application and will be available at (021) 221-3611 if you need to reach me.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Best regards,

Jane Donald
