All your cover letter writing misconceptions will be taken care of once you finish reading this. As opposed to popular belief, a cover letter is not a reiteration of a resume. It is in fact an augmentation to the resume that accompanies it. Most people lose out on important job opportunities simply because they repeat the information in their resume when writing a cover letter. This is employment faux pas!
Hiring managers do not want to read the same things twice. When they pick up a cover letter for hospital clerk position, they want to know how well a candidate communicates in writing, what his qualifications and accomplishments are, and how perfectly he can apply them in a new setting. What benefit you bring to a company is what a cover letter is all about. When you write a cover letter, pay extra attention to the content and format – your content should be relevant to the position for which you are applying, and there should be enough white space for the hiring manager to navigate through. Going through a cluttered document with little white space is a complete put off for hiring managers, who are already extremely busy and may not have the patience to deal with such a situation.

Dear Mr. Oldman:
I am especially interested in working as a Hospital Clerk at Limestone Hospital because I feel that I have the capacity and experience to provide credence in this role, owing to extensive exposure to working in a large medical facility. With some background in medicine and a penchant for administrative and clerical work, I am positive that my addition to your team will be a sizeable one.
If you look through the broad range of my qualifications, I am sure you will be as convinced as I am that hiring me will be a great decision:
• Exceptionally well-qualified to handle patient admitting activities, with special focus on accurate intake and verification work.
• Highly experienced in preparing and compiling records of assigned units, focusing especially on the integrity and confidentiality of information.
• Well-versed in scheduling patient flow for both procedures and admissions, based on predetermined appointments systems.
If you have time to meet with me, I will be happy to provide you with a more insightful view of my abilities. I will call you next week to possibly set up an interview date and time. Until then, you may reach me at (000) 999-9999.
