Sample email cover letter

Dear Joe

I am writing to inquire about possible teaching opportunities within your organisation. Per my attached resume, I have over 5 years of experience in teaching.

“In this section of your email cover letter, highlight relevant keywords. So, include skills and expertise.”

Please call me to set up a convenient time to meet. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your consideration.


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

Your name

Cell Phone

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

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

We’ll be adding another sample email cover letter.

To ensure that you have a professional resume, see my resume services.
