It's important for you to keep in mind that your cover letter summarizes the most powerful points in your resume. This means that the cover letter is not a place to be modest–you need to sell your skills as convincingly as you can. When recruiters look at cover letter resumes, they usually ask, ”What's in it for us?” If you're writing your cover letter now, you better make sure that you're making full use of its four components well. Every word in that cover letter counts. Looking at a cover letter resume sample can only be helpful to a point. You should not, in any case, copy any sample verbatim. That's the lazy way of writing a cover letter, and it never works. The best cover letters are written in the applicant's own words. Make sure that your tone isn't too casual that it ends up sounding arrogant, nor too stiff and formal that it ends up looking long winded and tortured.
Emphasize Your Accomplishments, Be sure to include your key accomplishments on your resume. Did you do something that saved a previous employer money? Did you find a way to do something in less time without sacrificing quality? Did you personally show your co-worker(s) how to do something? If you have done any of these things write them down on your resume. Let the employer know what you have done in the past and they will have a much better idea of what you will be able to do for them!
You don't know where that resume sample's been. Yes, I know. I sound like I'm channeling a mother scolding a child to take that stick (or pencil, or shoe, or toilet plunger) out of his mouth. But sometimes, mothers know best. In the case of the free resume samples you might uncover on the internet, there's no telling how many times that text has been copied and pasted onto documents. In other words, you don't know where it's been. If a hiring manager has seen the exact same objective and summary language on six resumes that have come across his desk that morning, how do you think he'll react when he sees your document duplicating the same text all over again? Not favorably, I suspect.
