Sample cover letters for fresh graduates (HR, Marketing, Sales)

We know it’s not easy to write a cover letter. You have spent almost two decades of your life in education, for some actively involved in sports, school activities, clubs, associations and others. And then there are those who have experience in internship, part-time jobs, industrial training and others. So how to cramp that much in a one-page cover letter?

What is a cover letter, you ask? As explained by the balance, a cover letter is a document sent with your resume to provide additional information on your skills and experience. It acts like a sales pitch document that allows you to ‘sell’ to the hirer on why you are qualified for the job you are applying for.    

Here are 3 types of sample cover letters that will make your application stands out. We also include a sample cover letter for candidates that has no internship experience.510x120-v2

Dear (Salutation & Name),

I am writing to express my interest for the position of Recruitment Assistant in your esteemed company.

Having recently obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Human Resource Development Management from the XYZ University, I wish to bring my knowledge, skills and commitment to excellence to your company’s innovative environment.

Throughout my education, I’ve become equipped with the necessary knowledge that come with the position including manpower recruitment, workforce organisation, personnel training and compensation as well as legal provisions and other labour concerns.

My internship at ABC Company also afforded me with the crucial skills to work with some of the best professionals in the recruitment and human resources industry. During the course of my four months internship, I developed enthusiasm and passion for human resources and the internship has subsequently convinced me that human resource management is my true calling.

Some of my achievements during internship include being the project lead for the company’s sports engagement activity. I worked alongside with other interns and we successfully organised an outing for 100 employees. We received a 95% ‘good to excellent’ rating from the survey feedback that we conducted amongst the employees after the event.   

For additional details regarding my qualification and expertise, please review my resume as attached with this letter.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear (Salutation & Name),

I would like to express my interest in applying for the position of Marketing Associate that was recently made available in your company.


I believe that my degree in Business Administration (BSBA) majoring in Marketing from the XYZ University has prepared me for this position. As a student, I was equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to help develop and drive effective marketing strategies.


During my six months internship at ABC Company’s Marketing Department, I learned how companies determine what product or services to sell, how to reach target demographics with the aid of analytic tools and how to respond to the some of the threats from competitors. More importantly, I had the opportunity to work with seasoned professionals who taught me how to easily grasp complex marketing concepts and at certain times, how to roll with the punches in order to achieve various objectives.


I have also acquainted myself with a wide range of skills that allow me to blend with the group or team’s culture and to continuously strive to reach common goals amidst failures and setbacks.


My proudest achievement during the internship would be organising a guerilla marketing for a newly launched product. I secured a venue at GHI Shopping Mall and we conducted a social experiment to introduce the new product. We received tremendous positive response from the shoppers and 50% of the shoppers eventually purchased our product that day.


In addition, my active involvement in many academic and extracurricular activities has helped me tremendously in developing my communication and leadership skills, which are vital in finding success in the corporate world.


With this application letter, I attach herewith my resume for your full consideration. Thank you for taking time to review my application and I am looking forward to your reply so that we can further discuss my application.

 

Yours sincerely,

(Your Name)

Dear (Salutation & Name),

Please accept my resume as an application for the open position of Sales Associate in your company. As a fresh graduate of Business Administration, the position appears to fit wonderfully with my education, experience, and career interests.


Being a student of XYZ University, not only did I maintain excellent grades, but I was also a member of our school’s highly competitive and successful football team.


My background as a student and an athlete has taught me to be disciplined and focused which, I am confident, is one of the important qualities needed by any professional in the sales industry. My experience with working in a team environment has also instilled in me the value of teamwork and cooperation.


As a member of the team, I have also contributed tremendously in improving the team’s morale, spirit and engagement through the various team activities that I organised. From the scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest score), the team rated 8 for ‘successfulness of activities when it comes to engagement’. Through my achievements as a student and an athlete, I have proven that I am passionate and dedicated about the things I do.


While this would be my first time working in the field of sales, I am quite confident that with my skills and abilities, I can learn quickly and make an immediate impact to your team and to the company.


Thank you for taking the time to consider my application and I look forward to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely,

現今不少人面對工作上的不公平待遇、人工過低、長期OT、欠缺晉升空間或人際關係不如意等,都會決然裸辭,然而職場競爭激烈、加上近年市道不景,打工仔輾轉尋尋覓覓一輪後才感到後悔,想「返兜」舊公司,但又擔心無面,究竟是「好馬不吃回頭草」,抑或是「好草不怕回頭吃」?  近日就有網民於討論區發文,稱自己裸辭完兼玩了兩個月,正考慮是否要「吃回頭草」。樓主指自己是舊公司的老臣子,辭職時公司曾表示不介意他休息完再「歸隊」,但人工照舊(低於市埸7至8千)。樓主聽聞舊公司已將其工作交由其他同事接手,但就未有聘請或升遷任何人填補空缺,令他覺得或許可以重投舊公司懷抱,卻擔心前下屬對他的看法:「會唔會覺得我返嚟霸住個位令佢冇得升,定有我係度lead住做嘢輕鬆啲冇咁大壓力」,故希望網民可以提供意見,為他指點迷津。  不過大部分網民都不太贊成樓主「吃回頭草」:  「衰硬咪制」  「回頭草食前要三思」  「出面仲有無路數先?真係要有心理準備比人玩」  「準備簽賣身契」  「人工咁低喺出面搵吧啦」  「返去做咪即係你垃圾,廢,出面撈唔掂,係值咁多甚至更少」  「無著數返去做乜」 ...
