Skills are central to driving your workplace wins so it only makes sense not to write a cover letter without stressing on skills. In fact, cover letters are all about skills especially if you are applying for a position such as that of a junior recruiter in which one has no choice but to rely on skills solely.
A junior recruiter’s cover letter needs to written in a manner that it is translated into a wonderful employment insurance policy. Your cover letter can actually become an umbrella that will eventually keep you safe from the rain of economic thunderstorms. So choosing your words wisely is very important; decoding your skills lineup is imperative so the use of power terms such as the ability to develop consultative relationships and perform initial screening activities is important.
Following is a cover letter example for this position.

Dear Mr. Tool:
If SMCI Athens is searching for a dynamic and results-driven Junior Recruiter who possesses strong communication and leadership skills, then I believe you do not need to look any further! I encourage you to review the enclosed resume which supports my desire and ability to exceed your expectations and any goals that you entrust me with.
Owing to the 6 months, internship and 1.5 years of subsequent full time work in the human resource department of Nigel Frank International, I have been trained in all the functional areas of strategic human resource management. Since my previous employment place was initially a unionized environment and later converted into a non-unionized one, I have had experience in handling recruiting processes in both these areas.
In my role as an intern, I helped with the creation of a human resource / new employee manual which I see is an immediate requirement of your company. I believe I can not only help you with this but also with streamlining recruitment initiating procedures and building personnel databases. I present a strong track record of providing decisive team leadership and direction which was the main motivation behind the company offering me a full time position and awarding me an honorary internship certificate.
Once you have reviewed my resume, I would like to meet with you in person and discuss the specifics of this position in detail. I will call you after the New Year to ask if a meeting can be arranged. I can be reached at (444) 444-4444 if you need to contact me. Thank you very much for your consideration.
