For some people, sending in design-dependent cover letters is an all-time high.
For most employers, it is a complete downer. Remember that unless you have been specifically asked to send in a “colorful” cover letter, don’t do it!
Since most cover letters go through the system, the fonts, designs, and colors often get messed up, resulting in a document that is unreadable. Even if they don’t, most employers do not like flowers and hearts on the cover letters they receive!
Writing skimpy, generic cover letters do not take you anywhere. In fact, standardization in cover letter writing is quite a sin.
This is because hiring managers would have seen dozens of the cover letter the likes of which you will send in, and it just does not do them any good. Speaking the right language in a cover letter, and making sure that it is in sync with what the hiring manager wants to read, is the road to success.
Here is a sample for you to go through:

Mr. Bruce Harold
Human Resource Manager
Summit Painting and Remodeling
65 Park City Road NW
Klamath Falls, OR89745
Dear Mr. Harold:
If you are searching for a success-driven Remodeling Contractor with a verifiable track record, look no further.
I bring 3 years of remodeling work experience, which is sure to serve Summit Painting and Remodeling well. During this time, I have been responsible for a lot of activities associated with carpentry and masonry work, and have been quite successful in managing remodeling projects. For more information on this, please refer to the enclosed profile.
During the time that I have worked as a remodeling contractor, I have been busy overseeing and leading teams of workers to ensure that all assigned projects and project modules are completed on time. With my ability to quickly and accurately determine clients’ specific requirements regarding remodeling and renovation, I have been known to provide them with what they require exactly.
My comprehension of handling a wide variety of remodeling tasks, including drywall work, floor, and window installation, and light electrical and plumbing replacement, is wide and well-placed. Moreover, I am exceptionally talented in handling remodeling and renovation projects that require much in terms of “from scratch” work.
I look forward to meeting with you and answering any questions that you may have. I will call you soon to set a meeting time. If you need to reach me in the interim, please contact me at (000) 111-1111.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
