How to Write a Resume Cover Letter

Grab the hiring manager's attention with a clutter free resume cover letter. Focus on the important stuff and cut out whatever isn't. Also keep your sentences short and simple. Here's some examples:

Poor example: "Pursuant to the job ad listed at xyz job site, I am herewith responding in hopes that you will provide me with consideration regarding a potential possibility of an interview being granted with myself and with a high expectation of being hired for said employment as stated..."
 

Better Example: "I have a passion for helping others and I know the importance of team work and as such I am interested in the team leader position at your charitable organization. My extensive experience make me well qualified to fill this position and so I am interested in meeting with you for an interview so that we can discuss further..."
