Brian B Egan – English/WritingBack to Instructor Webpages
All these links were on the first page of hits from a Google search on "cover letter examples". There is a huge universe of examples out there!
HOWEVER, please note that an example's presence on the web does NOT ensure that it is a good example. As you look at what other people have done, assess each for appropriateness to its very specific audience, whether it fulfills its purpose (giving the author a shot at a job), whether it follows a sensible structure, and whether it is a reasonable example of good technical writing technique.
Note also that some examples are "blind": they are sent in hope of an opening rather than in response to an ad or posting. Several of the examples in the links below have poor opening sentences: fluffy, passive-voice, all-about-me-not-you time-wasters. Which of the examples would get YOUR attention as a busy hiring manager? Which would you trash within that critial first ten seconds?
