Cover Letter Sample #1

Dear X,

I am applying for the post of a camp leader, which I saw advertised in the March edition of the magazine Holiday Jobs for Graduates.
I reckon I have many of the relevant qualifications needed for this job. I have worked extensively with young adults, organizing a variety of activities (surfing, water polo, summer quizzes). I have a certain understanding of teenagers, having studied psychology and education at Bristol University. It’s easy for me to find a contact with teenagers and they respect my leadership abilities.

I’m very practical person, easy-going and able of establishing good working relationships. I’ve travelled widely enlarging my educational and practical experience. I’ve worked with summer camp Aurelia in Australia.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
X
