As a fresh graduate, many candidates find it very difficult to write a cover letter because they don’t have much to write in the experience section.
Writing a cover letter is not as difficult as you think even if you don’t have less or no experience in hands. All you need to do is to learn the basics of writing a cover letter.
The first paragraph is an introductory paragraph. Make the starting of your letter unique and attractive. Mention some knowledge regarding the prospective company and also include your relevant skills and competencies. In the second paragraph relate your skills and qualifications with the company’s requirements and tell the employer how you intend to utilize your skills for the advancement of the company. The last paragraph of your cover letter is just as important as the first one. At the end request for an interview and thank the reader for his/her time and consideration.
The following cover letter sample for the position of an entry level bank teller will give you an idea on how one should be written when applying for this position
