If you are wondering how to write a cover letter, looking at sample cover letters can help.
If you are like many people, learning how to write a cover letter can be a challenging task. Remember, when you are applying for a job, your cover letter is often the first thing that a hiring manager sees. Looking at a few samples is one way to get you more comfortable with how to write a cover letter. Samples can give you an idea of how to organize your letter and how to summarize your experiences.
Sometimes cover letters are printed on paper, but often times you will be writing your letter in an e-mail or in an online form. In any case, it is important that your letter describes your strengths and why you would be a good candidate for the job. Take a moment to read the sample below, and start thinking about what to include in your own letter.
For more samples, see our Dental Assistant cover letter, Medical Billing and Coding, and Massage Therapist cover letter example.

Dear Dr. Harris:
Please accept my application for the Medical Assistant position advertised in The Press of Atlantic City, on November 10, 2013. My resume is enclosed for your review.
I am a recent graduate of the Harris School of Business 900-hour Professional Medical Assistant Program. At Harris, I was fully trained to enter the medical profession, and I successfully completed a 180-hour clinical externship at the practice of Dr. Benjamin in Seabreeze, New Jersey. If you would like to review the evaluation I received from Dr. Benjamin, I would be pleased to provide it along with my transcript from the Harris School.
If you would be kind enough to grant me the opportunity to meet with you, I will answer any questions you may have of me.
I look forward to hearing from you, and will call you next Monday to ask if we may arrange a time to meet in person.
Thank you for your consideration.
