Overview and Guidelines
A cover letter for construction manager resume is the only acceptable means of communication with a prospective employer. What is the resume then, you ask? A means of communication it’s not! Let us explain why.
A resume contains blocked information that is targeted at providing an overall view of the candidate’s abilities. On the other hand, a cover letter talks to the reader and therefore considered a better source of communication. While your resume does need to be complete and innovatively written, it is actually the cover letter that will do the job. Your cover letter should be complete through every angle. It should provide information of your qualifications and make it obvious that you are interested in the work that you are applying for. But it can be difficult to write a complete cover letter in the first go, so we recommend that you write the first draft and then build up on it. This way, you can add or delete things that you deem necessary, making your cover letter a complete package of accomplishments, experience and qualifications.
For information on how to effectively write a cover letter that is sure to bring results, refer to the one below.

Dear Mr. Colley:
Spending entire days (and sometimes nights too) in the company of architects, engineers and surveyors, it is no wonder that I am insightful of construction work as if it was part of who I am as a person. As you delve deep into my professional profile, you will see exactly what I mean, as my resume is complete with information on my accomplishments in this arena.
Working for AAA Construction as a construction manager, you will find me:
• Expert in creating core construction plans according to each client’s specific needs.
• Adept at coordinating resources and personnel to kick start and complete construction projects in a time-efficient manner.
• Absolutely capable of ensuring high quality of construction by employing both supervision and coordination skills.
Additionally, would you be interested in knowing how I managed to complete the logistics of a commercial construction project 5 weeks before the scheduled deadline? If so, let’s meet so that I can provide you details. I intend to contact your office to set a meeting time soon. If the need arises, you can contact me at (111) 111-1111.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
