Letter writing has been altered by the modern technologies in today’s era. However, there are still words that convey professional thought and give more emphasis when written. An example is a cover letter used when applying for a job. Here is a sample cover letter and its layout that will contribute to a good first impression during job applications. A good cover letter should be in the basic format of a business letter and should discuss your intent and procedures on how you will follow up your application.

Dear Mr. Sy:
I have read in the advertisement you posted in the New York Times of an available vacant position in your company. As a response, I would like to express my intent to apply for the Executive Assistant in your company’s Learning Resource Center.
I worked in a special library of a pharmaceutical company in Las Vegas for three years. During these years, I worked conscientiously and often awarded as the best employee in the company. I already have my Masters in Information Technology, which I finished last June. My degree n IT will serve as a driving tool to deploy library materials in soft copy formats and AV formats.
Please review my resume attached and the certificates I received these past years.
I will be waiting for your reply. Thank you.
