I would love to be a part of the specialty foods business, especially at Mom's Marmalades. I will give you a call next week to see if we could set up a time to discuss my becoming a part of your company for the summer.
Feel free to call me at (212) 555-5555 or send email to [email protected]
Don't use a tiny font just to fit everything on one page; 10- or 12-point type is best.
Write clearly and avoid hyphenated words at the ends of lines.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that your cover letter should be individualized.
You are applying for different jobs, your cover letters should show that.
I am hardworking and analytical and I like taking initiative.
In the past year I have accomplished a lot: I've always believed in the quality of your jams and have enjoyed them since I was seven years old.
Also within this paragraph you should have a sentence telling the person looking at your resume how you would fit into their company. One brief sentence will show the person that you are interested in their company and you are not just throwing resumes and cover letters to anyone that is hiring.
You want to end your letter on a positive note and reiterate your email or phone number and a link to your personal website.
