					A Sample Cover Letter For a Job Application
Most jobs ask for a cover letter along with your resume. A cover letter
can make or break your case with the prospective employer. I am giving a
sample cover letter below in the format which most business schoo ls
follow in the USA. I am assuming that the applicant is doing his/her MBA
right now. Make sure you put in the correct postal address and other
details in the letter below. It is like a template right now. The names
used below are used just as an example and are fake. Study the below
letter carefully and draft your own cover letter for your applications.
Good luck.

Dear Mr. Clayton:
I came to know about a managerial job opening in the marketing team at
your company from Robert Woods of United Services. With my work
experience and MBA in marketing, I feel that I am an ideal candidate for
the position.
I have been following the progress of XYZ, Inc. since last two years from
newspapers and trade journals. I am keenly interested in the online -
offline model developed by your company to sell products on the Internet
and in retail outlets. Before I started my MBA, I worked extensively in
marketing and retailing products on e-commerce websites. Currently, I am
sharpening my skills in the traditional marketing areas with my MBA
studies. I plan to graduate in December 2008 with an emphasis in
marketing. I find a great synergy between your company and my background
and experience. I am sure, that as a marketing manager in your company, I
will be able to take the department to new heights.
I am eager to talk to you and learn more about the managerial position. I
want to discuss with you, the new ideas which I have for XYZ, Inc. Please
review my resume. I will contact you after a week to know about the
possibility of arranging a meeting with you.
Your time and consideration is greatly appreciated.
