Writing a cover letter involves a lot of things. The first thing that one needs to look into is the format. What type of format will you choose? Then comes the part where you have to place information in it. Is there a “proper” way of putting information in your cover letter? Or a simple write-up will do? There are many considerations.
The best way to go about it is to follow what the heart says. Your cover letter is a projection of your innermost thoughts – professional type. If you feel that a certain area of your professional life is worth mentioning in a cover letter, write it in detail. Make your words come alive by using language that you know will speak to the person reading your cover letter. When you make sure that what you write is apt, you automatically win interviews. A sample is given here for you to look through:

Dear Mr. Moore:
Anticipating a position as a Human Resource Rssociate at Arrow Electronics Inc. I offer a plethora of skills and qualifications, detailed in the enclosed resume.

Owing to my capability of effectively and efficiently conducting employment verifications, and proactively assisting with benefits administration, I have been commended for my efforts by my supervisors many times.
Bringing both my professional abilities and experience forward, I would like to meet with you in person so that I can elaborate further. If you feel that you need any more information from me regarding my suitability, please do not hesitate to contact me.
