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.

A truly top-notch organization! From start to finish, each phone contact, e-mail reminder, ease-of-use worksheets....a absolute pleasure to work with such professionals. It really puts your mind to ease as the customer. The job search and interview process is stressful enough....your team takes so much of that away knowing that I can present a resume represents me and my accomplishments. In this way, my first impression will shine!!

Nancy was a pleasure to work with. I was very impressed with the level of dedication that she had put into my project. She was very well versed on "my industry", and asked very specific questions toward our collaborative process. The end result....my resume will get the attention it deserves...the format and content are all first-class.

I will highly recommend your services to all that I know.

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the position of Director of Educational and Administrative Technology for the XXXX XXXX XXXX...Feedback from some of the members of the selection committee revealed that they were "blown away" by the resume. Actually, they only had me in for a single interview. This leads me to believe that this particular employer took great credence on the ability of the resume to communicate in my absence. I consider your work very instrumental in both the success of landing the job, and in the ability to successfully assert a salary requirement that is significantly higher for this particular area of the country...You can be sure that you are a permanent part of my electronic rolodex. If anyone ever needs a top-quality resume, you can be sure that your name will be mentioned.

M.Z., New York

I am more than pleased with my new resume! It is creative, eye-catching and captures my strengths and experiences. I am also impressed with your ability to be flexible with various ways to communicate with me throughout the process. Part of my reservation with updating my resume previously was that it would be difficult and time consuming. It wasn't and the end result was wonderful!

C.R., Maryland

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She address all my needs and was blown away how my new resume just "POPS" and gets your attention. I will recommend to my family, friends, and colleagues about how you can launch and re-launch careers. Thanks.
