Cover Letters for Recruiters

Purpose: Example of a cover letter to introduce yourself to recruiting firms (aka headhunter firms)

Quick Cover Letter Writing Tip: Recruiters are busy and will literally spend just seconds reviewing your resume and cover letter. The example cover letter below shows how your letter should get straight to the point. Your cover letter should be written in a way that makes it extremely easy for the recruiter to quickly scan and come away with a clear understanding of your objective and your key qualifications. This way, they can quickly and easily match your experience and qualifications to the specifications of the positions they are trying to fill. While your cover letter should still have a strong emphasis on accomplishments and results, it should also be very factual and concise. Using bullet points to call out key points is a good idea. You should also make sure that you clearly communicate not only the type and level of position you are seeking, but also the industries in which you have experience and your geographic preferences. This is the only situation in which we recommend revealing your salary expectations in your cover letter, as well. Recruiters need this information in order to do their job. Ideally, you should list your salary preferences as a range. If you can avoid it, you should not reveal salary expectations to potential employers until you have been offered a job.

Great news ! After not much success with my job search I had your company rewrite my resume. Immediately after I received my resume from you I started to get interviews. Sometimes up to 3 different companies a week. After only 4 weeks of interviewing I am delighted to tell you today I have received a job offer for a wonderful job. Not only is a great company and location it is also a pay increase of 28%. I did the math and the cost of my resume has only 1% of my pay increase. The Human Resource Manager said that she literally received hundreds of resume and mine stood out among all of them. Thanks so much.

Sharon is a terrific partner in this process! She did an excellent job of reframing my experience (very difficult to do) and producing a "clean" resume. Excellent quality and writing (and I'm very, very particular about writing style and form). Every contact I had with your organization was highly professional and 100% customer focused. Thank you! I would love to have the opportunity to work with Sharon and your organization again...you delivered a high-quality product in a timely, professional fashion.

Michelle Dumas' development of my resume resulted in an outstanding document. My first submittal to various contacts and executive recruiters resulted in six solid job opportunities within two weeks...... Nothing short of phenomenal. I believe the professional structure of my resume opened these doors. I highly endorse Distinctive Documents.

Hi Michelle, First, before I say anything else, I am very impressed by your documents. I am still reviewing them but given my impatient nature, I wanted to send you a note right away :-). What you wrote and how you summarized is simply astounding to me, if I can learn to write with the skill and prose that you demonstrate here, I can likely propel my career even further. All I can say is thank you for doing such a wonderful job. This has exceeded my expectations and the proof will be the results and offers that I receive. I am counting on a good return on my investment and with these materials, believe I am on a good path.
