I welcome the opportunity to further discuss how I can apply my strengths to the progress of Welford Correctional Facility.
I appreciate your taking the time to review my credentials and experience.
: Consider the "T" letter format, which first names the specific requirements an employer has asked for in the job posting and your corresponding qualifications.
If you have collected a list of likely qualifications for the positions you seek, you can do the same thing. An advertised position asks for experience managing, writing, marketing and accounting.
Even if responding to a job that states "no phone calls" consider calling to politely ask the name of the hiring authority or search through your Linked In network to see if one of your contacts knows the name of the hiring authority.
You may not always be able to identify the name of a specific person.
Most resumes are accompanied by a cover letter or cover email.
Written in business style, cover letters and cover emails should contain an expression of your interest in working for a company, an abbreviated introduction to your career and a short, compelling paragraph detailing why you would be a perfect fit for a current or future opening.
Deciding what to put in the letter remains tricky since you do not want to repeat your entire resume, yet you will want to make a strong case for a company to, in fact, look at your skills and experience to see if they fit any open positions.
Cover letters and emails are employed in a variety of circumstances, ranging from applying for advertised jobs to serving as a "letter of introduction" to companies where you want to work, requesting networking leads or informational interviews.
