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.

I used your services approx 16motnsh go and have now been in my current role for 1 year. I am 100% positive the investment in your services helped get me an interview and secure a 6 figure position. In a sea of similar resume's and great talent searching for employment you helped me stand out from the crowd. Still we remain in tumultuous time and deep recession. I think it only prudent to that I keep my resume and cover letters up to date with current employment and performance measures. I would like to consider using you to update my documents.
