Employers deem cover letters to be of great importance, often depending on them to make hiring decisions rather than resumes. You have to give them what they are looking for.

Cover letter samples are a dime a dozen out there. You can take your pick and take ideas from them. However, not all of them are well-written, despite you thinking otherwise.

Human Resource Manager
The Youth of Today

Rumney, NH 44550


Dear Ms. James:

I have worked as a youth worker at Rumney Youth Residence for over 6 years, and would now like to bring all that I have learnt and experienced to The Youth of Today. As a residential youth worker who is best known for his ability to ensure the safety and security of assigned clients, and assist in the execution of established youth treatment and placement goals, I am sure that you will not refuse my services.

Over the last 3 years, I have had a string of accomplishments to my name – the highest of which includes placing a client in organized society, who was considered “un-includable” by 5 other facilities. Directly supervising and monitoring the daily activities of young people assigned to me, and providing guidance and assistance to them with daily activities, is something that I am well-trained in. Since I am a trained youth worker, I can easily and effectively providing counseling services on an individual and group basis, to ensure that their problems are listened to, and to provide viable resolutions.

I am positive that someone who has a great talent to work with community resources to identify and implement youth work programs and projects, will be a great addition to your facility. Let me elaborate on this in a face to face meeting, which I will arrange with you over the telephone. Should you need to contact me, please feel free to do so at (000) 548-2028.
