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,

單車愛好者當上單車店主,既是興趣,人工又有3萬幾,是「真comfort zone」了吧?Viola(阿飯)卻沒停步,頭也不回地跳出去,改當攀樹師,放下10年的單車資歷重頭來過。看似任性?「在樹這行業我希望投入至少10年。」原來她早就想得很清楚,清楚得途上遇到的困難都不是困難、生活幾乎只剩下樹也仍很自在,想法透徹得像風穿過樹枝,「心態很重要。」 「向不向前行是看你肯不肯放下」 也因心態,她才沒錯過攀樹——攀樹其實涉及兩個前度,一個帶她攀樹,一個經她鼓勵入了行,卻在行內出軌。而她卻沒就此蒙上陰影,「你不放下就沒得向前行,行不行是看你決定而已。」她選擇將重點放回自身:「攀樹其實是我想做的。」第一次上樹時被樹包圍的感覺,她仍很記得。加上當時單車店工作也走到瓶頸,「要轉行都想過一輪,但人生要試新的事,而且就算要回頭都可以。」 但那不代表她就會輕易回頭,反而,她決定投放另一個10年,「我覺得那才能摸清一個行業的運作,將一件事做到很熟練。」即使面對體能要求、記錯可能會死的繩結,她都走下去,成功考了攀樹牌和鏈鋸牌,再經朋友轉介入行,由「地雞」做起,將大木切細、搬運、留意行人,再到攀樹,幸好那時她的樹隊專做政府轄下的樹木日常維護,不用追量,技術和體能都能慢慢鍛煉。 每投入一個行業她希望用10年,因此事前會做足功課,「這很重要,起碼了解實際做什麼,有什麼職位,最好找到前輩問。」而且這一行門檻雖低,但技術可以很多很深,需要進修的東西也多。 ▪ 轉行有黃金期?做兩手準備助轉型成功,特定工作30歲後有優勢! ▪ 時隔多年未見過工?中高層轉工6大提示...
雖然地盤佬係粗人,不過好多地盤佬都係其實識飲識食嘅。 平時食午飯 雖然有好多地盤都係好山旮旯,好多師傅都迫於無奈要食最難食嘅Van仔飯。不過如果附近有得揀,啲師傅都會揀一啲抵食夾大件嘅茶餐廳或者大排檔。近年連登上面嘅熱門經常出現嘅話題,講地盤佬鍾意食蒸魚飯,呢樣嘢我覺得係真嘅。根據我喺地盤附近成日食飯嘅非正式統計,地盤佬食蒸魚飯嘅比率真係最高,有蒸魚飯嘅茶餐廳,只要附近有地盤,通常啲蒸魚飯都會比地盤佬掃晒;另外仲有樣飯係地盤佬界都係好受歡迎㗎,就係湯飯。聽啲師傅講,做地盤都係為咗養妻活兒,冇得食軟飯(純粹講笑),喺外面日曬雨林做到咁辛苦,湯飯軟啲、易啲入口,又可以食得快可以快啲返去搵俾地方眠一眠(午睡)。 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—停工 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—風水輪流轉 有老細請食飯 好多判頭老細都鍾意請人食飯,多數係想同上家打好關係請食飯,有時係慰勞啲做得野嘅兄弟。傳說中多所罐頭老細都有一兩間相熟嘅酒樓或者大排檔,多數都會叫幾碟海鮮(通常海鮮都OK貴)加幾碟小炒,不過真正嘅主菜通常都係飲酒。多數啲酒樓老細會傾好咗比佢哋自己帶酒同存酒,有啲仲會比佢哋簽單儲埋月結。不過就算啲嘢幾好食都冇用,因為嘢食都係為咗送酒,多數食完都有人會嘔返晒出嚟。 ▪...
對於工作,有人只是打份工,有人渴望成為匠人,有人努力爭取名銜,林兆榮卻偏偏不想被職業定義。曾由將軍澳步行到元朗,開展「11號全日遊街」的他,一度被稱為藝術家,近年教書之外還做過《果籽》主持,又演戲,最近還考了個巴士牌,「我不會被任何職業佔據人生的主軸,不想被它支配了自己。」然而跳來跳去,總會撞板、「瘀」了,他笑着說:「好驚的,但就是要驚瘀,再面對它。」 「我都驚我會樂於坐着一世」 「我剛畢業時已很驚當太過習慣一個地方,個人就會開始僵硬。」他說。那時他在政府部門做外判工,看着阿姐每日就是淋花餵魚傾電話,煮飯蒸魚,再淋花餵魚,「我都驚如果找到一份這樣的工,我會很樂於這樣坐着一世。」他說。「我很不想做一個很沒有產出的人。那人生是很着數,但同時很苦悶。」 於是別人叫他去試什麼,他都去玩玩,例如果籽主持,卻撞了板:「原來我一要講scripted的東西就會口窒。」不過雖然是「玩」,他卻很認真,到處請教演戲的朋友改進。後來有人找他做要演少許戲的節目,他又去試,「發現自己演戲不是那麼好——這是發現來的,之後就有兩條路:以後都不演,或想辦法演好些。」最後他不斷試、看播出,再調節演戲力度,「有些位終於做得到了。」 他笑言自己常常「瘀」了,談到演戲:「難面對的,每次我看自己出演的節目都覺得自己做得很難看。但知有什麼做得不好那便再來過囉,再做好些囉,想多些新方法。」漸漸也不那麼介意給人看到,「那是我的進化過程。」圖為他主持時的片段。 ▪ Slasher不務正業但求自由?九十後斜槓族:「唔想十年如一日。」 ▪ 3日瞓2個鐘換3萬人工!Slasher目標打夠一百份工賺經驗閱歴 辭去6年的好工:人就是要試新事物嘛...
