Sample email cover letter to follow can be used and modified to create your own. Instead of a salary negotiation letter sample, we recommend salary negotiation in person or by phone. If asked about your salary expectations, indicate that your salary expectations are “negotiable”.. 

  • An email cover letter is your sales pitch to the company you are applying to.
  • The main objective of the email cover letter & resume is to get the employer interested in calling you for an interview.
  • Each email for job application/ cover letter should be tailored for the position and company you are applying to.
  • Check job application closing dates and always apply early.
  • Use Strong Action Verbs & phrases to describe yourself, your skills and your strengths.
  • You can prepare a general email cover letter, which must be edited for each specific job that you apply for.
