First Paragraph
State specifically why you are writing by identifying the position, field or general area of your inquiry. Tell how you heard of the opening or organization and the central reason why you would like to work for that organization (e.g. its mission or philosophy) and/or why you are well suited for this opportunity.

Body of letter (typically one or two paragraphs)
Elaborate on why you are particularly suited for THIS organization and THIS job by reviewing the job description, conducting online research, and specifically connecting the qualifications needed with your skills. Highlight your particularly relevant achievements. Elaborate on key points from your resume without repeating your resume word-for-word. This is not a paragraph version of your resume. Communicate clearly to the employer that you understand what is required of the position and the ways in which you have developed the skills the employer seeks.

Final Paragraph
Refer the employer to an enclosed resume and/or application form. Reiterate your interest in the specific position and restate the name of the organization. Request to meet with them to discuss this opportunity and your qualifications. Indicate how you can be contacted. If the position requires any level of “sales” skills (development, etc.) state that you will follow up (this demonstrates your comfort in doing this type of marketing outreach). But, if you state you will contact them, be sure to do so in the time you indicated! This is also the place that you include information that may be important but that you haven’t included elsewhere- for example if applying for a position out of town and you will be in the area at a certain time, if you will be out of the country and inaccessible for a period of time, etc. This is also where you include salary requirements, only if they request them.

111 Main Street, 5th Floor Indianapolis, IN 46666 Dear Ms. Smith: I am writing in response to the Post-Graduate Social Work Fellowship at Children’s Hospital that was advertised in Columbia University’s Job Listings. I am presently exploring career opportunities in clinical social work, particularly working with the issues associated with the health and mental health of adolescents and young adults. Throughout my graduate school education, I have gained experience working with adolescents and young adults dealing with a variety of health and mental health concerns, such as chronic mental illness, teenage pregnancy, physical and sexual abuse, and eating disorders. These varied experiences have furthered my interests in gaining greater knowledge and training with this population. Of particular relevance, with respect to my qualifications for the Post-Graduate Fellowship position, is my work at Harlem Mental Health Center’s Adult Outpatient Department, where I provide intake assessments and long-term treatment for individuals with mental illness. I have gained the knowledge and clinical experience essential for working with culturally diverse populations with varying types and severities of mental illness, as well as effectively functioning on a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Additionally, my experiences working at Queens Community Center have enhanced my desire to work with adolescents and young adults and furthered my interest in women’s health, such as eating disorders and reproductive health issues. I am able to forge excellent working relationships and collaborate with other staff and community agencies to assist clients in meeting their treatment and life goals and am committed to working creatively and collaboratively with clients. I believe that with my educational and professional experiences, as well as my motivation, enthusiasm, empathy and compassion for others, I could be a valuable and productive member of your team. I have attached my resume for your review and would welcome and appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this position further. I may be reached at (917) 555-5555 or at abc1111@columbia.edu. Thank you in advance for your time and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. Sincerely, Jody Jobseeker Attachment 222 River Road New York, NY 10027 May 15, 2007 Susan Smith Human Resources Manager Social Service Agency, Inc. 111 Main Street, Room 11 Somewhere, NY 11111 Dear Ms. Smith: Please accept my resume for the Research Associate position available in the Higher Education Policy Research Center at Silver Springs University. I am currently completing my doctoral program in higher education at Teachers College, Columbia University and am extremely interested in moving into a research setting. I feel strongly that my previous professional experiences working in academia and my recent dissertation research have adequately prepared me to perform successfully in this position. While I have spent the majority of my professional career working with students directly, I have shifted my focus to policy-making and the impact of higher education policy on the college student experience. I also am competent in both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely, [Your Signature Here] Jody Jobseeker 111 River Road, Apartment 111 Brooklyn, NY 11111 June 8, 2007 Ms. Christina Huang, Director Recruitment and Staffing The Mount Olive Medical Center One High Terrace New York, NY 10055 Dear Ms. Huang: I am interested in the MICA Day Treatment Program and the Inpatient Gero-Psych positions advertised in The New York Times on June 6, 2007. Having spent the first ten years of my life in Uruguay, South America, I am bilingual and bicultural. Furthermore, I completed my first year graduate school internship providing long-term psychotherapy to Latino clients at Oscar Arias Family Guidance Center. These experiences, my graduate education, and my clinical skills would enable me to excel as part of your therapeutic team. Of particular relevance to the MICA position, is my rotation (part of my second year placement) at New York Hospital’s Psychiatric Emergency Room where I assessed patients’ drug abuse histories and their willingness to enter rehabilitation if substance abuse was a problem. Prior to this, as an undergraduate, I completed an entire summer workshop on alcoholism sponsored by The Famous Foundation. Moreover, as an undergraduate research assistant at Babies Hospital Columbia Presbyterian, I interviewed pregnant women to identify addictive behavior patterns. As to my qualifications for the Inpatient Gero-Psych position, please note my rotation at the New York Hospital’s Fracture Service, again part of my second year’s Rotating Placement. There I gained invaluable experience with elderly patients. In undergraduate school, I interned eight months with Alzheimer’ s patients at the International Center for the Disabled. I particularly enjoyed this client population. Given that the enclosed resume cannot fully communicate my qualifications, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your needs and my abilities to fulfill them. I can be contacted at 212-555-5555 or abc1111@columbia.edu. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Ms. Stackman: Susan Alcott, Superintendent of the League for the Protection of Immigrants and a resident of the Forum, recommended I submit my resume in regards to the Development Director position with the Forum at the Crossing. With my graduate education from the Columbia University School of Social Work, proven abilities to motivate staff, and extensive fundraising experience, I am confident in my abilities to excel as Director of Development. I believe Ms. Abbott has already spoken to you about my speech writing and fundraising skills. My five-year community service background also includes program development experience in providing health, education, and psychological services for immigrants and women entering the work force at an organization called Immigrants First. In addition to providing these vital social services, I supervised junior staff, interns, and volunteers, and successfully designed and implemented several projects which increased funding by 45% over a two-year period. Given my skills and our areas of mutual interest, I believe I could be of enormous assistance to you in the growth and expansion of the Forum. The details of my background appear in the enclosed resume. I will contact you next week for an appointment to further discuss ways I can contribute to your development initiatives. I can also be contacted at your convenience at 212-555-5555. I look forward to meeting with you soon. Thank you for your time and consideration.

OAKLAND, Calif. — When Tassafaronga Village, a mixed-income development, opened in East Oakland two years ago, it replaced a compound of grim, crumbling, low-rise concrete buildings penned in by a gated fence.
