Timely Tip – If you’re scouting around the web picking up ideas on how to write your cover letter, we’d strongly recommend that you dramatically change anything you copy from the Melbourne Resumes website, as there’s a good chance that other candidates have copied from exactly the same cover letter samples and resume templates.

You don’t want to come across as looking like every other candidate……so write in your own style or contact Melbourne Resumes on 1300 979 890 for quote.  Our cover letter writing services start from just $150 for a high quality professional cover letter.

Employers see it as a dead give away if you have just used a generic cover letter to send your resume in. It screams that you aren’t that interested, but you thought you better send in a job application, just in case.

Many candidates overlook the importance of the cover letter, and just send out one generic cover letter to every job they apply for. This is a big mistake that may be costing them dearly. Don’t be like the herd of people that are generally lazy!

You cover letter needs to be presented in the same format that your resume or CV is formatted. We suggest you use open block format and use a professional and narrative writing style.

Your opening statement should grab the attention of the reader immediately within the first sentence. It should speak to the reader and tell them exactly why you are the ideal person for the job.

It should address each of the criteria listed in the job advert or in the job description, so the recruiter and/or hiring manager can clearly see that you have taken the effort to articulate exactly why you are definitely worth an interview.

Finally, a great cover letter will ensure that your resume is not only read but read in the best possible context, draw attention to the most relevant parts of your resume and make it clear why you should be interviewed!

Take the time to tailor your cover letter, or have a professional cover letter written for you.

If the job is worth applying for, then it’s worth writing a letter to tell them why you believe you are the best candidate for the job.

Sample Cover Letter

Use the following sample cover letter template as a tool when writing a cover letter to get your foot in the door for an interview.


Your name
Mailing address
City, state, and post code
Telephone number(s)
Email address


Today's date

Your addressee’s name
Professional title
Organisation name
Mailing address
City, state and post code

Dear Mr (or Ms) last name,

Start your cover letter with a statement that establishes a connection with your reader, a probing question, or a quotable quote. Briefly say what job you are applying for.

The mid-section of your cover letter should be one or two short paragraphs that make relevant points about your qualifications. You should not summarise your resume! You may incorporate a column or bullet point format here. Choose some qualifications that really target the position you are going after. Do not go overboard and save some information for the interview.

Your last paragraph should initiate action by explaining what you will do next (eg, call the employer) or instigate the reader to contact you to set up an interview. Close your cover letter by saying “thank you.”

Sincerely yours,

Your handwritten signature
Your name (typed)

Enclosure: resume
