At times, writing a cover letter seems like something much harder than rocket science. This is probably due to the fact that most of us do not bother finding out what it is that we should do to make it easier. Cover letter writing may be serious business, but it is hardly difficult – that is, if you know what to do.
What needs to be done to take the edge off cover letter writing? Research. What is the hiring manager looking for exactly?
A prospective employer / hiring manager must have written what he or she needs in an employee in a job advertisement.
That is your key. Look through the job description several times before you decide what you want to write in a cover letter. Make sure that it is not something that is unnecessary, like details of your experience. Stick to skills.
Here is a sample to give you ideas:
Warranty Coordinator Cover Letter Example
November 7, 2017
Mr. Harrison Lloyd
Human Resource Manager
MLT Systems Inc.
199 Midhurst Avenue
Bel Air, MD 65114
Dear Mr. Lloyd:
Customer service – rather, excellence in customer service is what my main focus has been while working as a warranty coordinator for Monroe Tractors (my present place of work). As you progress reading the enclosed resume, you will gain a fairer idea about what I can offer to MLT Systems Inc. in the role of a warranty coordinator.
Summarizing and analyzing warranty claims, and labor hour reports for management reviews, and working effectively with different departments to request warranty charge numbers are just two of the areas that I am exceptionally talented in. In addition to these, I possess demonstrated expertise in reviewing service requests against closing dates, ensuring that customers are led and directed toward proper claim techniques.
Since customer satisfaction is my top priority, I have often been commended on my ability to retain customers, through provision of high-class services. Working as a warranty coordinator means representing the company as a first tier contact, a feat that I am exceptional at. Ascertaining that all customer care actions are properly aligned with the company’s warranty claim processes is my niche, as is making sure that verifications are properly managed.
I am confident that once you and I have met in person, you will have a better idea about my abilities and skills in this arena. To make this happen, I will call you soon. In the meantime, you may reach me at (444) 444-4444.
