Employer’s Contact Information
To the Hiring Manager,
Introduction: A “startup” paragraph introduces you and the reason you're writing. This section will require very little editing-you’ll be able to use most of it again after you customize such details as job title, posting date, etc.
Mix and Match: This section will contain one or more paragraphs of interchangeable statements based on “the best of your resume”. You’ll be able to use or delete statements based on what you think will be useful for an application. You’ll also have the option of adding new information at any time.
Positive Closing: A gracious way to end the letter. This section will require very little editing-you’ll be able to use most of it after ending on a positive note and perhaps using the employer’s name.
