A Free Sample Job-Seeker Ad Response Cover Letter

Here’s one sample job-seeker letter for responding to a job ad.

1090 Peachtree Lane, #4
Atlanta, GA 30303

Ms. Judy Sumner
Atlanta Board of Education
45 Peachtree Blvd.
Atlanta, GA 30303

Dear Ms. Sumner,

Perhaps I am the “multi-talented teacher” you seek in your “Multi-Talented Teacher” advertisement in today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I’m a versatile teacher, ready to substitute, if necessary, as early as next week. I have the solid teaching experience you specify as well as the strong computer skills you desire.

I am presently affiliated with a highly regarded private elementary school. Mr. Craig, the headmaster, will certainly give you a good reference. The details of your advertisement suggest to me that the position will involve many of the same responsibilities that I am currently performing.

In addition to the planning, administration, and student-parent counseling duties I highlight in my resume, please note that I have a master’s degree as well as a teaching certificate from the state of Georgia.

Knowing how frantic you must be without a fifth grade teacher, I will call you in a few days. Or if you agree upon reviewing my letter and resume that I am the teacher you need, call me at the home number listed above, or at 555-7327 during business hours.

Thanking you most sincerely for your time and consideration.


Maria Plazza-Smith
