Customized cover letters are the need of the day. They not only help in conveying the candidate’s motivation and professionalism but also make it easy for the employer to relate the candidate’s skills to the job requirements. Below are some golden rules that must be followed for effective cover letter writing.
Grand Opening: First impressions count! A unique and impressive opening will give you an edge over your competitors’ right with the recruiter’s first glance at your letter.
Matching your skills against the employer’s requirements: The main body of the letter must be dedicated in portraying yourself as a viable and suitable candidate.
Solid Ending: The ending of your letter is perhaps more important than the opening. This is where you leave the employer. Make sure you reflect confidence and clearly ask for an interview.

Mr. Tyler Fredrick
UNIVERSAL HEALTH SERVICES
78 Yale Ave
Greenville, SV 56998
Dear Mr. Fredrick:
I was impressed by this quotation on your website: ‘Individual commitment to a group effort is what makes a team actually work.’ Each person has to be dedicated in order for the team work to succeed.
8 years of experience as a hospital food service worker, familiarity with and adherence to the state issued sanitation guidelines and a track record of meeting and exceeding the nutritional and food quality requirements of patients and customers are the core assets I bring to your open advertised position of a hospital food service worker.
Over the span of my experience as a food service worker, I have successfully contributed in many areas of the hospital kitchen. My achievements speak highly of my capabilities:
✔ Streamlined the stocking process by implementing various inventories which ensured 24 hours availability of all raw material
✔ Initiated regular sanitation and hygiene audits that led to a considerable elevation in the level of sanitation and cleanliness
✔ Conducted three workshops to coach and train newly inducted personnel regarding hospital based food service
I look forward to utilize my acquired skills productively at the Universal Healthcare Services and would like to have an opportunity to see you in an interview. I will call you on Friday to set up a suitable date and time for the purpose. In case you have any queries regarding my background, please feel free to call me at (005) 666-3333.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
