Many job applicants still refuse to include cover letters with their resumes. They feel that both the cover letter and the resume say the same thing. They do not.
A cover letter is much different from a resume, which highlights everything from skills to education.
The former is not written to edict information about an individual’s work experience, or any other such information. It is written to build upon your skills and qualifications for the job.
To be able to write a near-perfect cover letter, you have to think about yourself in terms of what the hiring manager needs.
Read up on the job description, and then match yourself to it. If the match isn’t there, look for it somewhere else.
But once you have a solid match, you can go through the following cover letter sample for assistance:
eBay Seller Cover Letter Example
April 12, 2018
Mr. Anthony Stevenson
Human Resource Manager
46 South Avenue
Erie, PA 18893
Dear Mr. Stevenson:
I have been working as a seller on eBay for over 6 years now, and have acquired quite a customer base for myself. In order to further contribute by virtue of my experience, and the skills developed through it, I invite you to review the enclosed resume, which will provide you with a wider view of my abilities.
With such extensive experience of working on one of the biggest online stores, I am sure that you will be highly interested in me as a seller. Prior to this, I had also worked for Store Mass, which is why I am aware of the many ways in which online retailing works.
Handling both physical and virtual inventories, managing order placement and follow-up, creating and maintaining a well-placed online store, and handling customer’s complaints with exceptional professionalism, are all areas that I am exceptionally talented in. If you go through my profile, you will be able to judge how well I have minded my online store, and how excellent my rating is on the website, with many repeat customers providing excellent feedback regarding my professionalism and diligence.
Unfortunately, a resume cannot possibly be as detailed as I would like it to be. To further shed light on why I believe that I should be hired as an online seller, I will contact you soon to set a time. Until then, please feel free to call me at (000) 777-5241 if required.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
