Your Best Cover Letter Ever
Cover letters for every professional scenario
Most people write cover letters for job applications, but that’s not their only use. Cover letters can be used in a variety of professional situations. Crafting a terrific cover letter can help you stand out in several different scenarios, including:
Prospecting a Company
A prospecting (or cold contact) cover letter is written by a job seeker to a company of interest. This type of cover letter is a general inquiry about open positions rather than a response to a specific job ad. This letter is designed to put you on a recruiter’s radar so that when an appropriate role opens up, you’ll be the first person who comes to mind.
Networking Cover Letter
Unlike a standard cover letter that’s sent as part of a job application, a networking cover letter might be sent to a former colleague, mentor, friend or other professional contact. This type of cover letter informs the recipient you’re looking for a job and requests their assistance. A networking cover letter is the most casual and tends to be the shortest.
Career Change Letter
This type of cover letter can play a big part in proving your worth when you’re looking to make a career change. It allows you to explain why you want to take on a new title or enter a new field, and describe how you already possess necessary transferable skills. A career change cover letter lets you draw a line between your work experience and the responsibilities you’d have in this new role.
Relocation Cover Letter
If you’re planning to relocate, your cover letter should reassure an employer that this is a long-term move and that the transition will be smooth. If you’re looking to relocate for the sake of the job opportunity, give convincing reasons why you would like to make the move, such as a stronger economy or a better lifestyle.
