Expectations of positive results from a cover letter are only fair if you have bothered to write one that a prospective hiring manager will hold in high esteem. Otherwise, you are simply wasting your time, waiting for an answer. A cover letter is not something that needs to be just “written”. It is a piece of art. Have you ever come across resignation letters that go viral on the web because of the sheer artistic nature of the content? And have you ever wondered why no one has made a cover letter of the kind viral as well? Maybe because it doesn’t exist just yet.
And maybe you can be the one to write a cover letter that has the potential to go viral. While breaking the internet with your aspirations and future plans may not be your goal, you can write a cover letter that at least breaks the record of mundane, boring and dull cover letters that seem to be the norm nowadays. And that is reason enough for an employer to want to meet with the person who was nifty enough to write one.
Here is a cover letter example for a vet receptionist position that may not break the Internet but is sure to hold the employer’s interest for enough time to make a decision in his or her favor:

Mr. Steven Ford
Human Resource Manager
Titan Vet Clinic
100 12th Avenue
Langdon, ND 25212
Dear Mr. Ford:
I have spent the last few years working at a front desk position at Bay Pet Resort and Grooming, along with volunteering my services for UWSTA (United We Save the Animals), and do not find anything more fulfilling than working with gentle beasts that go with the territory! With a great deal of exposure to many types of animals, particularly domesticated ones, I am well-versed in handling not just their personal and medical needs but also how to handle a veterinary facility efficiently.
At this point in time, I am looking for a receptionist position at Titan Vet Clinic where I can provide assistance in handling front desk operations and records management and support animal examination functions. By performing the same at my present place of work, I have been successful in:
• Streamlining client / pet registration processes by implementing interactive online registration procedures
• Successfully implementing core procedures to ensure animal safety and wellbeing when restrained
I am interested in meeting with you in person so that we can discuss the parity between your requirements and my qualifications for a receptionist position at Titan Vet Clinic. Please contact me at (555) 555-5555 or irmathompson @ myemail. com if you require any further information. I will also be in touch with you soon to determine a time and date for an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
