Dear Selection Committee,
Start your letter with a grabber- a statement that established a connection with your reader, a probing question, or a quotable quote. Briefly say what job you are applying for.
The mid-section of your letter should be one or two short paragraphs that make relevant points about your qualifications. You should not just summarize your resume! You may incorporate a column or bullet format here.
Your last paragraph should initiate action by explaining what you will do next (e.g., call the employer) or instigate the reader to contact you to set up an interview. Close by saying "thank you".
Sincerely yours,
firmanapoleone
Napoleon I of France
