Creativity and ability to work in a structured manner seek company

Working as a Software Engineer at [Current Employer] has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. I have learned a great deal about the transport industry and have met many interesting people along the way. I have always known that it would take an extraordinary opportunity for me to consider leaving my current job to take on a new challenge.

My name is Linda Smith and I’m writing to let you know that I am a perfect fit for the position as Software Engineer at [Company name].

I believe that I am the perfect fit for you!

Why do I think that [Company name] should consider me for this job?

First of all, I feel that my professional background has prepared me well for the challenges that any Software Engineer has to face. My role as software engineer at [Current Employer] has meant a lot to me, and has provided me with invaluable experience in working in an international environment.

In the past, I have also worked as sales assistant at [Former Employer].

My educational background is also a good fit for the demands placed on your new Software Engineer. In addition to everything I learned in my classes as a software engineering major, studying at Durham University also gave me a large network and valuable experiences of a different kind.

Last, but perhaps most importantly, I believe that my personal qualities and abilities are a good match for what you at [Company name] look for in an employee. The people I have worked with would probably describe me as straightforward, structured and creative. I have often had use for my strong sense of loyalty, and I am a person puts an emphasis on delivering high-quality work.

I hope that this brief presentation has given you small taste of who I am, and what I can bring to your team. I also hope that I will be given the opportunity to meet you for an interview, so that I may give you an even better idea of why I am the right person for you.

Best regards,

Linda Smith

How did we create this cover letter?

The examples in this list are created in our Cover Letter Generator, which you find here. The structure behind these texts is the proven rhetoric disposition that was invented in ancient Greece more than 2000 years ago. They say wine gets better with age, well, that doesn’t really go for the rhetoric disposition. It was brilliant in the beginning, and it is still brilliant.

Its main parts are the following:

a) Introduction
Spark your reader’s curiosity! Write something that makes the recipient remember you and want to continue reading.

b) Background
What is it that made you want you want to do what you do? What are you currently working on? What are you looking for?

c) The statement of the case
Your statement is, of course, that you are the perfect match for the job.

d) Argumentation
This is your time to shine. Describe why you are perfect for the role. Adapt the text to the most important parts of the job described in the ad. Try to find examples of what you’ve done that prove that you meet the specific requirements.

e) The conclusion
You have the opportunity to be creative here – feel free to finish up with a “call-to-action”, that they really should meet with you. It could also be a brief summary or any other creative idea that you come up with, something that makes the recipient want to take the next step with you.
