Cover Letter Sample for a New College Grad Job-Seeker

 

7 Apple Court
Eugene, OR 97401
503-555-0303

 

Mr. Archie Weatherby
California Investments, Inc.
25 Sacramento Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

 

Dear Mr. Weatherby,

 

My outgoing personality, my sales experience, and my recently completed education make me a strong candidate for a position as an insurance broker for California Investments, Inc.

 

I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in marketing, where I was president of both the Future Business Leaders of America and the American Marketing Association.

 

Although a recent graduate, I am not a typical new graduate. I attended school in Michigan, Arizona, and Oregon. And I've put myself through these schools by working such jobs as radio advertising sales, newspaper subscription sales, and bartending, all of which enhanced my formal education.

 

I have the maturity, skills, and abilities to embark on a career in insurance brokering, and I'd like to do this in California, my home state.

 

I will be in California at the end of this month, and I'd like very much to talk with you concerning a position at California Investments. I will follow up this letter with a phone call to see if I can arrange a time to meet with you.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Sincerely,

 


 

John Oakley
