Dear Mr. or Ms. (Name, if you know it; “Sir or Madam” or “To whom it may concern” if you
don’t know the name of your reader)
First Paragraph Opening
This is where you briefly introduce yourself, explain why you are writing (e.g. indicate
which position you are applying for, where you learned of the position, or that you are
inquiring about available openings). Try to grab the reader’s attention; remember that this
paragraph may determine whether or not your reader continues to read your letter.
Second Paragraph Body
Bring up the requirements listed for the job you are applying for and explain how you meet
them. Evoke specific examples from your work experience or academic life and relate them
to the job, company, or industry. Expand on your resume rather than repeat what you have
already written. Also, try to show a familiarity for the company, and explain why you like
their corporate philosophy or otherwise feel that you would make a good fit with their
employees. You might expand this into two paragraphs, if you have enough to say.
Third Paragraph Conclusion
Give a brief summary of your qualifications and restate your intent. Provide contact
information and either describe when the employer can expect to hear from you, or if you
will wait to hear from them. Close by thanking the employer for their time and
consideration.
Sincerely,
Your Name
