Cover Letter Styles
The tone and style of your cover letter will say almost as much to a potential employer as the content of the letter itself. The appropriate style can vary rather greatly based on the circumstance under which a letter will be sent out. Cover letters that are unsolicited, for example, will generally follow the style of a letter of inquiry. When a position is posted, a standard job application cover letter is generally suitable. Other styles include thank you letters that serve to follow up a conversation or interview, an acceptance letter or declination letter. Selecting among cover letter styles for the appropriate format is important to send potential employers the right message.
