HR Cover Letter, Sample & Format
A Cover Letter should be able to talk about you and your skills which are not in the resume. It is also an outline of what the HR could expect in your resume. Through such a Cover Letter, you are giving the HR officer an idea of what you have done in your academics and in your past company, what are your aspirations and what is the technology or domain you were working. All these details need to be put in a subtle way and not so vague. It can be made creative and interesting as well.
However, it is mandatory to maintain a professional tone throughout the mail and usage of appropriate words. Keep in mind that this is not a job application form so you need not give all the education qualification details like college or year of passing. Make sure you include only the relevant information in the letter.
The following is a sample of HR cover letter.

Subject: Cover Letter for the Position of Content Writer
I am writing you this to express my keen interest for the position of Content Writer at your organization, Sunshine Digital Media and Solution. I happened to know about this requirement through Monika Roy, Editor-in-chief at your concern. I would like to apply for this position. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication from the University of Mysore. I am extremely passionate about writing. I have been writing technical articles for my present employer for more than two years now. Though I always wanted to write creative content, I was never given an opportunity. I believe that Sunshine Digital Media and Solution is a great platform to re-start it all together.
I have quick learning skills and an eye for details. I am also good at time as well as team management.
I also have a personal blog. You can find the link to my blog below. The blog is about travel, food and short stories. I am also attaching my portfolio here with this letter. Please go through my articles and let me know. I am eagerly looking forward to hearing from you. It would be amazing to work with you.
