Volunteer Coordinator Cover Letter Sample & Template | GetCoverLetter
You gave me a resume critique last year, which was very helpful. But I, like many others, originally started following AAM due to your posts on cover letters.
On Friday, I got the offer! After I got back from work the day I accepted the job, I found an email from another company asking for a phone interview. When I politely declined, they wished me luck, but said I had been at the top of their list! I came upon your listing for a Customer Service Coordinator while browsing Indeed, and it really jumped out at me. Outside of work, I took it upon myself to become familiar with the products we carried so I could answer any questions that came my way.
My initial role at the Iron Bank was to follow up with our clients for executed documents. With very little to go on and no one to instruct me, I was able to devise a process which streamlined my follow ups, allowing me to take on additional responsibilities. My greatest achievement was the document execution escalation procedure I created, which was used by our department. I was thrilled to read about this opportunity and am eager to learn more about it. Oh my gosh thank you so much for this! This is a fantastic cover letter! Thanks for sharing and congrats on your new position!!
Yes, I like the casual tone and the way she conveyed her skills with examples. Tone is something I really struggle with in writing in general, and getting examples if my skills across naturally is difficult as well. This letter is a really good example of that. I agree, Dawn. She did such a great job! What a great cover letter.

Bookmarking this page for inspiration the next time I need to craft my own CL. Am I overthinking or do some hiring managers also see this line as a red flag albeit a very little one? Thank you for sharing! To me, it reads as a personal interest in the subject area, and a passion for learning more.

Some people read books or watch TV; I read meeting mags! I agree. It shows that the letter writer is a person who naturally likes problem-solving and helping people. Thanks for the inspiration! Yeah, I read this more like how my dad, who was a cost accountant, would bring home booklets to read up on the products his company manufactured.
At least half of it was that he was a voracious reader and, while he was never the best student in school, he was constantly interested in learning new things. Why does this say we used 15 widgets to make 5 TeapotMaster xes? I have a different reaction.

It could be read as bragging or sucking up. Also, are you ready to meet the expectations that it will raise by your employer — putting in overtime, working from home, etc? Especially with things like electronic devices, and makeup , those are things that someone really into the subject matter does for fun.
In the US, a certain amount of self directed continuing education seems expected. Learning about the products the company sells skirts this line a bit, depending on how universal the knowledge is. So the expectation you want to set is that you may do extra learning when it furthers your career or interests you, not that your boss can give you a product catalogue on friday and expect you to cram it for next week.
I struggle with this so much. I am in the teaching field, but hourly. The lines between learning, exploring interests, professional development and work off the clock can be pretty blurry. This is fantastic! And a great example of a letter from someone who is more in a support role — I know many of us in support roles have a difficult time converting our duties into accomplishments in our cover letters and resumes myself included.
I was thinking the same thing! I am super impressed with this letter! We rarely get them even when specified in the ad , and the ones we do get are very generic. I would definitely call an applicant in for an interview that sent this in. Nicely done!! The way I have used cover letter examples is to ask myself these things as they relate to the job I am applying for. What about this job jumped out at me? What is interesting about me that would add something unique or specialized to the role? What kinds of anecdotes or examples can I provide to support that?
Great job, OP! Me too! Any lawyers out there know generally if that would be frowned upon or is clear but personable still going to make a good impression? If to companies or nonprofits, the more conversational tone should be fine.
- study case marketing management.
- hard binding thesis limerick!
- here's another example of a great cover letter — Ask a Manager.
I think a more formal tone is appropriate when applying to companies. I am an in-house attorney at an F50 company, so maybe it is due to the size of our organization, but that is the norm here. We would want someone to be a little more formal, although as people said below, you can be formal without being stodgy. Extreme stodginess is also not good. I feel like for most roles at that level, formality is the norm.
I think you can be both personable and formal — the letters you post tend to be more on the casual side. I apologize if I sounded too harsh — I thought this was great! I think for specifics on legal cover letters it may be best to find examples from a law school website, maybe check corporette, or online blogs run by lawyers that offer advice on this.
Thank you! I personally tend to troll the websites of Top 10 law schools and use their format to help me out. CLs are honestly my least favorite task. I am a lawyer BigLaw, even! And it is a tad more formal than this.
I tried to think of it as having a conversation with a new professional colleague. Clearly, cover letters are more field specific than I thought. The letter has a natural—not an inappropriately informal—tone. A natural tone is appropriate for a cover letter in any field, including law and government. Plain language is appreciated in all fields. But in most other fields, the conversational tone is still uncommon, but I can tell you as someone who has sat on the other side of the table screening applications, they are a breath of fresh air.
It makes the hiring manager activate their imagination and they become more persuadable. The legal profession is more formal in all aspects, and that extends to the cover letter.
