Professional Cover Letter and Resume

This writer doesn't just repeat her resume in her cover letter. Instead, she explains how all of these things can be useful to the reader.

Her resume does an excellent job of  enumerating productivity though her Honors and Activities segment could be more effectively formatted.

Dear Mr. Lane,

I recently heard from Ashley Jones, a volunteer at your office, that your clinic is looking for more volunteers.  As a patient at your clinic in September 1997 and April 2000, I was very impressed by the high quality of employees you had, and I would feel privileged to work with such a knowledgeable and personable staff.               

I am currently enrolled at Louisiana State University, majoring in kinesiology with aspirations to attend physical therapy school.  Since my enrollment in the fall of 2001, I have held numerous jobs to fund my education.  As a result of this, I have yet to start my volunteer hours and would like to volunteer at your clinic regularly this summer.                

As a manger of the LSU Track and Field teams, I know that your clinic provides injury rehabilitation for many LSU athletes.  Athletic rehabilitation is an aspect of physical therapy in which I have a growing interest.   

As equipment manager for the past year and a half, I have improved many skills I think would be beneficial in a clinic, the most important of which is time management.  I currently work about fifteen to twenty hours a week, not including weekends.  On weekends, I'm usually traveling with the team, or setting up and taking down equipment for home meets.  I have learned to prioritize and work efficiently because there are many times when five coaches each want different duties completed at the same time. 

Besides working with the LSU track team, I have coached middle school track and soccer, worked at an after-school care program and a summer camp.  These jobs enabled me to work hands-on with children, but also required me to interact with their parents.           

Aside from work, I am a diligent student as well.  During my first two years at LSU, I was in the Honors College.  I have also been on the Chancellor's List and Dean's List, and am in two active honors organizations and currently have a 3.5 GPA.  

Please call me with any questions or to set up an interview at (225) 555-5555. I look forward to hearing from you.

Subject: Job Description 

I am applying for a volunteer position this summer at Baton Rouge Physical Therapy.  I heard about this opening from a current volunteer.  Physical therapy volunteers usually have at least a high-school diploma, are typically outgoing and willing to help others in need.  Typical duties include sterilization of work area, filing paperwork and assisting patients in movement around the clinic. 

I am hoping to go to physical therapy school upon graduation in May 2005, and have yet to volunteer at any clinic.   Hopefully, I will volunteer full-time at this clinic throughout the summer and continue to work sporadically during the school year.
