So we ve come full circle and are right back where we started. When writing reference and recommendation letters you want to make things easier for yourself - and starting with letter samples for character references can help you do just that! Now you too can write attention getting character reference letters with ease. Cover letter samples have long been used. Perhaps the popularity of these have only increased with the advent of online research and writing business. There are so many types of cover letters that can be opted by whoever is seeking for a job.
So you turn to your computer log on to the internet and Google "free application letters". Hundreds of websites pop up offering tons of free application letter samples. You can t believe your luck. You click through a few sites and find a letter you like. Your are positive that this one that will knock the socks off the hiring manager. You feel confident as you copy and paste it onto a word document that this letter will pretty much guarantee you an interview. Let s face it you found it online and it claims to be written by a professional therefore you can t go wrong. You change a few words around sign your name and off it goes.
Regardless if you are American or British you still need a good covering letter. We all know that a hiring manager s time is valuable and spending it reviewing resumes (or CV s) is not how they want to spend their time. They are looking for reasons to cut the stack of resumes on their desk in half. For example a majority of the time if there is no cover letter the resume is not even looked at. This is a standard practice in American and also in Britain what s even worst is if there is a covering letter it s poorly written and doesn t pertain to the company or the position at all.
