Remember the time when you were taught letter writing in school?
The good news is that nothing much has changed as far as the format of a letter is concerned – yes, even a cover letter is written on the same lines.
However, the content of a cover letter is a different ballgame altogether!
Using the same age-old format that you were taught in school, you can write a cover letter that shows you as the most amazing choice to be hired for a certain position.
Cover letter formats still run on the same introduction, main body and conclusion rule. The only difference is perhaps how these three areas are manipulated. Making sure that you provide just the right amount and type of information in all these sections is of great importance. Relevance and clarity of information in a cover letter is what will bring you several steps closer to the interview stage.

Dear Mr. Fisher:
As an aesthetically blessed individual, who has had great experience in directing popular plays and concerts over the last 10 years, I offer my services as an artistic director at Electronic Arts. While going through the outline that you have provided on the careers section of your website, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my expertise is exactly what you need! With such brilliant exposure to working in artistic direction, I am positive that I will be a complete and irreplaceable asset to you.
Organizing annual performance schedules, including subscription concerts, plays and outreach events is my niche, as is designing each performance according to specified themes. Since I am a born leader, I can easily and effectively identify and hire workshop presenters for vocal clinics, and other workshop events, and create and maintain effective liaison with technicians and musicians to ensure that events run smoothly.
An amalgamation of artistic sense and administrative prowess makes me an excellent person to hire at Electronic Arts if you are looking for constant success in the events that your organization is responsible for now, and in the future.
I will be in the vicinity of Anderson Avenue on Monday, and will touch base with you. Please feel free to contact me in the meantime. Thank you for your time and consideration.
