Sample Cover Letter as an Email

A cover letter sent in the body of an email is shorter than one sent on paper. You don’t need a mailing address, date, or signature. If you’re answering an ad, put the job’s reference number in the subject line. And remember to attach your resumé before sending.

Dear Mr. Sharma:

Because your company has always impressed me, I was delighted to find an opening when I recently visited your website. It appears to have been made for me.

As my attached resumé shows, I exceed your requirements for the position of admin assistant. With more than five years of progressively responsible experience at a major law firm, I can handle a high volume of diverse office duties with little supervision. Because I value efficiency, cost savings, and service, I believe I can add a great deal to your law practice. My in-house roles and awards will attest to my excellent working relationships.

I look forward to meeting you.


Rita Low
