Are you aware of the one ingredient that makes a cover letter a good read, even if it is written for an entry level position? The magic ingredient is confidence. If your cover letter tone is confident, you can impress the hiring manager as much as any experienced individual can. Basically, you need to be able to sell yourself, specifically your worth, to a hiring manager who had no idea that you existed on planet Earth before your cover letter landed on his or her desk!
Looks difficult? Perhaps. But it isn’t all that difficult. When you write a cover letter for the first time, your insecurities almost always slip into it, making your case weak in front of a prospective employer, who hopes to hire someone who is confident and a go-getter from day one! How does one do this? One writes a cover letter with care, and then rereads it several times before considering it good to go!
A cover letter is not just writing on a piece of paper. It is much more than that. Cover letters should be deemed great communication tools that help hiring managers make the right decisions. If you are a prospective employer’s “right decision”, you have written your cover letter just the way it should have been written! Want to see how you can write to impress even at the entry level?

Dear Mr. Moore:
My interest in social work stemmed from a 3 week volunteer position that I held at The Rainbow Children, while I was still in high school. The impact of what I saw and learnt there was so intense that it led me to take this work seriously, and enroll in a degree program. Since then, I have been waiting with bated breath to work for an organization that holds social work on a pedestal that it deserves.
As things are now, I am sure that you can do with one more dedicated and skilled social worker to help your organization spread its wings wider. Owing to my knowledge of preparing and evaluating assessment, and developing and implementing social work plans, I will be an immediate and valued contributor to your facility. With some exposure to performing case management duties, coordination, casework intervention and monitoring of social work service plans (owing to a recent internship at The Guild), I am positive that hiring me will only add to the solid reputation that your facility enjoys.
At the end of next week, I will call your office to determine if you have a free timeslot when I can meet with you in person. In the meantime, you may call me at (000) 412-4124 if you need any additional information that my resume does not offer.
