Dear Joe


I am writing to apply for the position Nurse. Per my attached resume, I have over 5 years of experience in nursing.


In this section of your cover letter email, highlight info relevant to the position that you are applying for. Show the skills and expertise that match the job description.”


I am confident I am the ideal candidate for the nurse role.


“Only if asked to include your salary expectations, indicate that your salary expectations are negotiable”.


I am available to meet with you at a time that’s convenient. Please call me to set up a convenient time. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your consideration.



Don’t sign when sending a cover letter email or when applying online.

Instead of a salary negotiation letter sample, negotiate salary in person or by phone. Indicate that your salary expectations are negotiable, if asked.


Use the above cover letter email as a guide, then write a personalized cover letter email. While the above sample is for a nurse, use this sample for all professions.


We’ll be adding another cover email shortly.
