Most of us have held part time jobs. For those of you who haven’t, the first step is to ace cover letter writing.
A cover letter for a part time job will be much like that for a full time one. Perhaps the only difference will be in the content, and that won’t be much either.
For a part time job, your cover letter should detail what skills you offer.
For instance, if your skills lie in sales, you will need to build up on that. And if you are an excellent communicator, you can focus on obtaining a job in customer services.
No matter which job you are applying for, you must highlight your skills accordingly.
It is important to remember that part time jobs need as much in skills as full time ones.
Since you have to give your best during the time that you are stationed in a position, it is imperative that you convince the hiring manager that you are the best – through your cover letter.
Here is a cover letter sample that can be tweaked to almost any position:

Dear Mr. Tyson:
I am interested in working as a (insert position) at your organization in a part-time capacity. I am presently enrolled in college and hope to obtain a degree by the summer of 2020.
As a great communicator, with excellent people skills, I am sure that I will be a great benefit to your company.

Furthermore, I am talented in maintaining records and filing systems, paying special attention to confidentiality and accuracy of each record.
I have volunteered my services in many areas, some of which I am sure will be of great interest to you. Also, my ability to get along with people from many different walks of life makes it easy for me to connect with customers, visitors, and peers.
Next Monday, I will be in the vicinity of your office and will drop in to see if you have an available time to meet with me. If you need to reach me before that, please call at (000) 200-7800.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
