2 of 3 Free Sample Cover Letters - application for a teaching position
Dear Mr. [insert name];
I am a retired army veteran with a life long interest in teaching high school students, and am seeking a job that will lead to a fulfilling career in education. I recently saw an ad in the Sunday Edition of the Times Union for a 10th grade math teacher and am submitting my resume for consideration for that position.
My teaching experience is mostly limited to teaching math in community education programs to mostly young adults, but many of them were only a few years older than 10th graders. That experience, plus my ability to deal with potentially stressful situations with a great deal of calm is another asset that I bring to the position.
I am an optimist who thrives on challenges, a team player who is also capable of leading by example.. If your faculty could benefit from someone these attributes you owe it to yourself to consider me. For your consideration you can call me at [phone number] if you have any questions about my interest, availability, or qualifications.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Mrs. [insert name]
Please accept this letter and enclosed resume as application for the Clinical Supervisor Position that I saw advertised in Sunday's Village Voice. I got excited when I read it, because my experience and skills are in perfect alignment with the skills and experience sought.
For example, I have a Master's Degree in Social Work and four years supervisory experience at County General Hospital where I supervised ten employees. I also coordinated and provided in service training to clinical staff to enhance job proficiency and to provide the continuing education credits that mot of them needed.
As my resume indicates, I have a demonstrated commitment to my clients needs and employers goals. So, if you are looking for an administrator experienced in leading a multi disciplinary team in the professional delivery of clinical and treatment services I am your guy.
In closing, I will call you Tuesday morning to see if you need any additional information from me in order to consider me for the position.
