A cover letter can be best described as a great connector. What other document in the job application set can effectively communicate your experience and skills in one go? Definitely not the resume! Yes, the resume does possess information of both but essentially, it is little more than listed information of your abilities. On the other hand, a cover letter is more profound, giving off the impression that you are much capable of doing what you will be hired for – and of contributing highly in your role.
Cover letter writing must never be taken with a pinch of salt – it is serious business. The fact that you are an applicant worth considering must be made obvious in a cover letter. How you do this is at your own discretion. But you will have to follow at least some cover letter writing rules. For one, a cover letter should never reiterate the information in a resume – that is old news! You have to build up on the information that your resume holds, which means that adding augmentation is what you have to do.
Do you often feel overwhelmed when writing a cover letter? Perhaps it is the format that bothers you? Or the content? Either way, here is your savior:

Mr. Fredrick Manger
The Great Dermatology Clinic
2856 Ian Road
Rochester, IN 46320
Dear Mr. Manger:
I am a perfect combination of experience (in a dermatology facility) and administrative prowess, and feel that my addition to The Great Dermatology Clinic will be a great contribution. Why I believe in this so strongly is highlighted here:
• Exceptionally talented in performing patient intake duties, with special focus on accuracy of documented information.
• Hands-on experience in preparing examination rooms by efficiently and correctly setting up dermatology equipment and instruments required for each procedure.
• Highly skilled in performing basic clinical preparations such as preparing specimens for lab work, and proactively following up on results.
• Focused on educating patients and family members on different dermatological procedures to better their understanding of what to expect.
While working at Dermatology Inc. (my present place of work), I was responsible for initiating and leading 3 educational seminars on the importance of skin care, which enjoyed a huge attendance! Intending to replicate this, and provide assistance with both dermatology procedures and administrative work, I offer my services. I can be contacted at (000) 444-5214 if you require any further information to process my job application.
