Sample Cover Letter & Interactive Quiz

Writing a good cover letter that will open doors and help you get an interview is not an easy job. A cover letter is sometimes also called a motivation letter or covering letter. In this post, I will share a sample cover letter with you – so a bit of help here, check it out!

The cover letter below is a simple, entry-level cover letter written by someone who is fresh out of school with little or practically no work experience. Two of the most important rules for writing a good cover letter are that it should be grammatically correct and completely error-free with no typos and no spelling mistakes either. 

Below you will find an interactive quiz to practice writing cover letters. In this exercise you’ll have to use the correct verb forms in the cover letter. Simply type the correct word into the space – you can do this on your cellphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. Then click on “View questions” to see the correct answers or scroll down for the cover letter sample.

Dear Mr Taylor,

Please find enclosed my CV in application for the post advertised on the website of your company.

The nature of my degree course has prepared me for this position. It involved a considerable amount of independent research, initiative, self-motivation, a range of soft skills as well as teamwork. During a 6-month internship at the European Investment Bank I gained first-hand experience in organizing large-scale internal and external events for employees and visitors.

I am a fast learner with a keen eye for detail and can adapt easily to new situations. During my internship I earned praise for my ability to multitask and prioritize. I would be very grateful for the opportunity to discuss the possibility of working with you. I have the enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I make a success of our cooperation.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Jay Happy
