I'm thrilled to be applying for the open bank teller position at [Bank Name], which I saw your job posting on [Website Name]. The posting indicated that you're looking for an experienced bank teller with excellent customer service and math skills, who will not require training. With over 13 years of experience as a bank teller, I'm pleased to say that I fit the bill perfectly.

Specifically, you mentioned needing an experienced bank teller that is efficient but detailed, and has the ability to work immediately without supervision. With that in mind, here are some of my relevant achievements:

• Processed 25+ customer transactions per hour with extreme attention to detail
• Responded to customer account inquiries totaling 130+ weekly accounts
• Balanced Automated Teller Machines, Teller Cash Dispensers, Teller Cash Recyclers, often totaling more than $100,000

January 1, 2023
Dear Hiring Manager
My name is Charles Bloomberg, and I have a Bachelor's and a Master's in Finance from Cornell University, New York. With this strong financial academic background and 3 years of experience in financial advising and analysis, I'm writing to express my interest in joining the team of financial analysts at Schlumberger & Claxton Associates as the Finance Stream Lead.

During my 3 years at AXA Financial, I was part of a team that managed the investments of approximately 50 HNI clients, with a total AUM exceeding US$77 million and an average annual DC of US$400,000+. My role involved both analysis (forecasting) and advising, with a roughly 50:50 split. Based on my analysis for each client, my team and I developed financial strategies for the client, after which we either advised the client or acted on the strategies.

In my third year at AXA, I was also responsible for mentoring and overseeing the work of 2 junior analysts. Their onboarding and continued success validate my managerial abilities, which I hope to put to excellent use at your firm.

Most of my analysis at AXA was performed on their proprietary software packages, in conjunction with Excel and SQL.

Because I understand the fundamentals of financial analysis, my skills are very transferable, and I can adapt easily to the software environment at Schlumberger & Claxton Associates with little or no training.

Given that your client base is very similar to the one I have extensive experience with, I am confident that I can lead your team seamlessly, right from day 1. I'd love to talk about my experience with my existing clients and the value that I bring to your organization. I'm available for an interview all of next week. Please let me know when we can meet.

Sincerely,
Charles Bloomberg

If there are key points on your CV, feel free to expand on them in your cover letter. Talk about what happened behind the scenes, e.g. describing your process and workflow.

Investment Banker Cover Letter

January 1, 2023
Dear Hiring Manager
My name is Charles Bloomberg, and I’m writing in support of my application for the Investment Banking Associate position at David Blair & Company. While a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration have given me the fundamental knowledge necessary to be a successful investment banker, it's the 2+ years at LTA Inc that’s significantly furthered my expertise.

Over the last 2 years as an analyst in the M&A division at LTA Inc, I’ve contributed meaningfully to 6 M&A deals totaling in excess of $3.8 billion, serving as the lead analyst in 3 of these deals. Apart from being integrally involved in valuation and financial modeling for these deals, I was also responsible for maintaining pitch books and ensuring that all stakeholders, both internal and external, had all the information they needed at the right time.

I’ve been praised by my seniors for the attention to detail and clarity in my reports, especially my executive summaries. One of the MDs termed my executive summary for a critical $1.3 billion M&A deal the “most well-written report I’ve come across in years.” I understand how critical data and reports are in decision making, which is why approach writing even the simplest of reports or updates with utmost diligence.

Another facet of my personality that I’d like to highlight is my networking and people skills. I am proud of my ability to effectively interface with colleagues — be it peers or higher-ups — as well as clients, both actual and potential. In fact, I was assigned a summer intern to assist with my tasks while I was just 10 months into my analyst role, a first in my firm. This is a testament to how quickly I settled into my role and my manager’s faith in my people management abilities.

I’m now ready for a more impactful role in a larger firm, which is what motivated me to apply for the position you advertised. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have in person or online, at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at (621) 799-5548 and charlesbloomberg@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
Charles Bloomberg

Like the last example, write about the impact you've had in previous job positions. 

There’s no issue with expressing your thoughts as long as you’re keeping it professional. Also, don’t forget to support your points with examples and data.

Dear Hiring Manager
My name is Charles Bloomberg and I am applying for a Web Designer position at Google. I have chosen to apply for this position because of your strong reputation for excellence. I've developed a strong interest in the Internet, technology, and how people interact with each other and their devices. I've shown the ability to solve business problems in an innovative manner and I am excited to bring my experience to Google.

My interest in the field of Web Design and the Internet started while I was completing an internship at Ginkgo Bioworks where I was able to design and optimize the design of a new service model for a client. I was exposed to how the design of a service model, specifically a set of data-driven and user -centric testing service models, is key to understanding your client's business needs and meeting their expectations. I worked closely with the product marketing and customer delivery teams to develop a new service model which enabled E2E testing. This experience helped me learn how to design and implement a UX testing plan on new service concepts, using customer feedback to further optimize client needs.

I am excited to apply my knowledge and experiences to the field of Web Design at Google. I am eager to explore new ways for users to interact with devices and each other, especially considering how difficult it can be to find the most effective way to communicate. I am sure that my interest and experience will provide me with a unique perspective to help you grow the field.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to discussing the opportunity further.

Sincerely,
Charles Bloomberg

Dear Hiring Manager
My name is Charles Bloomberg and I am applying for the Graphics Designer position at Company Z. I have spoken with several members of Company Z's Graphic Design team and was each time impressed by the team's acuity and passion for producing the highest quality graphic design. I've developed a strong interest in providing incredible service to designers across many diverse groups and have in-depth experience doing so.

My interest in Graphic Design developed while working as a Graphic Designer at Company A. The position forced me to learn and apply proper graphic design techniques in order to design engaging and high-quality graphics for print, digital, and other various applications. I conceptualized, developed, and produced creative content for print and digital materials including posters, flyers, brochures, signage/banners, t-shirts, promotional items, newsletters, and email blasts. I optimized graphics for website, social media accounts, and contributed to the development and implementation of department strategy.

Prior to my work at Company A, I was able to apply my graphic design experience to Company B, where I was given the opportunity to assist the company's Graphic Design team in the development of the company's identity and design standards. It was here that I found my passion for understanding how each person's work complemented the organization's success. I enjoyed understanding how each employee's work helped accomplish the organization's goals because I was able to find ways to perform my own tasks more efficiently to ensure departmental success.

My passion for this field and desire to understand graphic design, advertising and the internet align with Company Z's approach to understanding its customers and their complex businesses and circumstances in order to provide the most effective graphic design solutions.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to discussing this position further.

Sincerely,
Charles Bloomberg

Dear Hiring Manager
My name is Charles Bloomberg, and I'm excited to apply for the position of Junior IT specialist at the French Central Inn, Charleston. I'm a recent graduate (December YYYY) in Management Information Systems (MIS) from Charleston Southern University, and I'm eager to enter the workforce. I meet all of the academic requirements mentioned in your job posting.

Growing up, I took a liking to all things tech and digital, which led to me picking MIS as my major. Apart from all the tech courses during my MIS studies, I thoroughly enjoyed and excelled at the psychology courses, as the intersection of tech and humanity (specifically, how people respond to and adapt to technological changes) is a passion of mine. It's one that I discuss frequently on my tech blog [URL].

During my final year of university, I interned at Safe Homes Inc., a vendor providing an array of home security systems. I worked on both the hardware and software side, installing physical equipment as well as configuring the requisite software, and involved elements of IoT.

What excites me most about this position is that the role involves extensive work with the Internet of Things (IoT). As a leader in combining IoT and hospitality, working at your inn would be a fortuitous coming together of passion, competence, and opportunity.

I look forward to putting my knowledge and skills to use as a productive member of your IT department and learning from the best in the industry. In an interview, I'd love to discuss my short - and long-term career goals and how they align with the French Central Inn's tech vision. I await your call.

Sincerely,
Charles Bloomberg

More Cover Letter Templates At Your Disposal

A Good Cover Letter Improves Your Chances of Getting Hired

If your resume isn’t well written, a good cover letter could make up for it. In fact, 83% of HR decision-makers reported in a survey that they’re an important factor when making a hiring decision. 

It’s worth putting the effort into writing a cover letter because it’s going to be a useful and relevant document for recruiters.

Are you someone who’s going to be committed? 

Do you have the strongest work ethic and competence compared to other applicants?

Can you meet the job criteria? 

These are the types of questions they’ll be thinking about throughout the process. It’s up to you to communicate in your application whether or not you meet those expectations.

Aside from your skills, hiring managers also want to know if you’re someone who matches their company culture. And that’s where cover letters are helpful. Unlike a resume, you have the opportunity to explain why they should invest in you. 

Conclusion

Resumes, cover letters, and letters of interest alike… They’re all similar in terms of time and effort. 

We understand it isn’t always as simple as it seems to create a tailored application. 

So we built a range of tools and resources to help job seekers land the golden job opportunities they come across in their careers.
