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 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!

Michelle I was so right in choosing you as the author of my resume. I am incredibly pleased, no... more than that, blown away with your artistry and skill. It was always my objective to look this good on paper... why, I'd even hire me based on this presentation.

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.
