Dear Dr. Smith:

I am writing to express a sincere interest in joining an organization that rewards success for those willing to earn it. It is this kind of reputation in a company that has prompted me to forward my resume.
Over a span of 20 years, I have provided professional services in a myriad of industry segments, encompassing the globe. My most-recent work history includes a 10-year stint with XYZ Corporation. XYZ is one of our nation’s largest environmentally conscious, independent power producers.
My professional tenure has provided me with years of comprehensive business experience working and negotiating with senior-level management and key personnel at many of the Fortune 500 companies. Including companies like; Boeing, Kimberly-Clark, Johnson & Johnson, and Calpine, to mention only a few.
While many of these endeavors have been challenging, they have also been rewarding. They have provided me with continual growth and success, both personally and professionally. However, most of these professional endeavors have required extensive travel and ultimately time away from home. Therefore, I have made the decision to pursue a career path that is rewarding, professionally and personally. While this decision has not been easy, it has afforded me the opportunity to further my education and to pursue a position at a local company.
You will certainly not regret providing me with a position within your organization. I look forward to proving myself as a valuable asset to your management team.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you and discuss how my professional experience will best meet your company and management needs. Please feel free to contact me, at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at (555)121-2112 to set up an…...

...at General Motors. A Note to Practitioners— Since the burst of the dot.com bubble, many procurement professionals and purchasing managers have begun to question the ability of the Internet to redefine procurement processes within their firms. In this article we set out to show that this would be a misplaced sense of deja vu because the Internet along with a milieu of decision technologies based on Game Theory and Optimization is proving to be a significant tool in the hands of procurement professionals. Sans all the hype, the dot.com phenomena has left behind useful ideas including that of e-platforms for on-line auctions. Building upon this core conceptual construct, familiar to most procurement professionals, we first illustrate the successful implementation of sophisticated auction models by pioneering firms, based on optimization technologies, that meet the requirements of complex business-to-business procurement. We then discuss the exciting field of research this has opened up with a vast potential for immediate and gainful applications. We review the existing stateof-the-art in this field, track its recent developments and classify the models available for different procurement scenarios. We also provide pointers to areas that require further fundamental as well as applied research which calls for the attention of not just academic researchers but also practicing professionals. T.S. Chandrashekar is a doctoral student and Y. Narahari is a Professor at the Department of......

I believe my previous experience in consulting and leadership roles have prepared me well for this position. Prior to attending Mccombs, I acquired a diverse set of analytical and client interaction skills working across multiple industries in an entrepreneurial environment in Mu Sigma.

...Before writing a cover letter, its important to understand how it can help or hurt you. In the internship application process a cover letter is your first impression. It's an opportunity to tell a perspective employer why you’re the perfect fit for their internship and their office and just as importantly, a cover letter is an opportunity to tell an employer you don't care about their position, by writing a sloppy or template cover letter. Some valuable cover letter topics include, explaining why a position interests you, what you bring to the table, how you would be a great fit, or something unique about you that makes you different from the hundreds of other candidates. The ultimate goal of your cover letter is to get the reader excited to meet you for an interview to learn more. To summarize the points above, ingredients needed to make a successful cover letter are: Header with contact information: Including a header with your contact information on the cover letter makes you look professional and ensures your information will be easy to find. You should also consider including this header on all documents you’re submitting when applying, it demonstrates your professionalism and acts as an opportunity to brand yourself to the perspective employer.  Who is your audience? Try to find the person who is in charge of intern hiring and address your cover letter and resume to them.

...COVER LETTER SAMPLES Your Name Your Street Address City, State, Zip Date Employer’s Name Title Company Street Address City, State, Zip Dear Mr. or Ms. Last Name: Your opening paragraph should briefly introduce you and your interest in the company. If you are aware of a specific position or opening, refer to it now. This paragraph should also be used to mention the names of individuals you have met from the company (e.g., at the EIS, company event or other networking event), or the individual who directed you to this person. Cite other research that prompted you to write, such as a recent article on the company or a positive networking interaction. The last line in this paragraph should give a summary statement of who you are and why you are a strong fit for the position. Your middle paragraph (or two) should consist of specific examples from your background that would be of greatest interest to the company and consequently create the “notion of fit.” Do not just make broad generalizations about your skill set – any assertions about your skills have to be backed up with specific examples of how/why you have developed those skills. Focus on your skills and accomplishments and how they could contribute to the company, but do not simply restate what is on your resume. Demonstrate that you know about the organization and the industry. If you are a career changer, it is essential to clearly state your transferable skills from previous experience that......

...Sydney, NS BlP 5Z2 Canada Sir/Madame: I am writing this letter, as a potential permanent resident immigrant specifically in the economic class, in line with the affirmation of my assurance that I am capacitated to establish myself in this vast country with limitless opportunities without opting to seek for the aid of the Canadian government. Corresponding to the enforced selection method which gives precedence on age, educational attainment, language proficiency and adaptive transferable skills, I consider myself to be qualified enough to effectively establish myself and go well with the Canadian community which is essential in contributing to the development of the country. Although it is a challenge in having the same level of academic qualifications and work experience to that of its Canadian counterpart, I am confident with my fundamental abilities in being able to re-form myself and adopt to the demands in agreement with the strategic roles that the Canadian government plays in developing and leveraging the human resources. At the onset of living permanently in a foreign country, it may present trials in terms of settlement and adjustment which may appear tremendous for a new immigrant. However, I am truly interested in acquiring permanent residency in this open and independent country and I have faith that it will create a positive transformation in my life by forming a significant part in my professional advancement. Being in the younger age bracket,......

...All cover letters should: Explain why you are sending a resume. Don't send a resume without a cover letter. Don't make the reader guess what you are asking for; be specific: Do you want a summer internship opportunity, or a permanent position at graduation; are you inquiring about future employment possibilities? Tell specifically how you learned about the position or the organization — a flyer posted in your department, a web site, a family friend who works at the organization. It is appropriate to mention the name of someone who suggested that you write. Convince the reader to look at your resume. The cover letter will be seen first. Therefore, it must be very well written and targeted to that employer. Call attention to elements of your background — education, leadership, experience — that are relevant to a position you are seeking. Be as specific as possible, using examples. Reflect your attitude, personality, motivation, enthusiasm, and communication skills. Provide or refer to any information specifically requested in a job advertisement that might not be covered in your resume, such as availability date, or reference to an attached writing sample. Indicate what you will do to follow-up. In a letter of application — applying for an advertised opening — applicants often say something like "I look forward to hearing from you." However, if you have further contact info (e.g. phone number) and......
