Help with cover letter and good vibes!

I found a job in the paper that I really want to go for can I get some good vibes please? Also it says to apply in writing with CV. I've never really wriiten a letter to go with CV or application what kind of things do they want to read/know? It would be for dental nurse training if that helps.

Re: Help with cover letter and good vibes!

  • I forget where you are but in the US, a cover letter is standard.  I just googled and this is what google says:

    • Tell the reader what position you are applying for
    • Make the reader want to learn more about you
    • Coincides appropriately with your resume
    • Show your personality
    • Prove to the reader that you are capable and knowledgeable

    Then this is the example they had:

     

    I am writing this cover letter in response to your advertisement in the Daily Reports News Paper for the vacancy of Dental Assistant post. I feel that my interests and credentials match with the requirements of position and thus want to apply for it.

    I have completed my graduation from a reputable Academy in Dentist as well as having four years of experience as dental assistant, working with other dental assistants with the responsibilities and tasks such as taking oral x-rays, preparing supplies for making restorations and impressions, removing sutures, developing the film under the supervision of a dentist, cleaning up excess cement from a filling, applying treatment to teeth and gums using topical anesthetic.

    For the growth and integrity of any company there is always a need of well-trained and professional dental assistant. After reading your advertisement I feel that I am the person who has experience and skill set you are looking for.

    It would be great if we meet personally to discuss how my experience and education will be useful and helpful for you. I will call you on Monday morning to fix the timing for meeting that suits you. Thank you for your consideration and valuable time.

    Sincerely,

    Violet's Mommy

     

     GOOD LUCK!!!

  • I am in England. Thanks that does help a bit. Only I do not have training yet that is what the job is for to sort of apprentice and it says they will pay for you to take the exams. This is one field I had planned on going into a few years ago though so I really want it!
  • I googled cover letter no experience!  This time they said to write why you would be good even without experience:

    I am enthusiastic and willing to learn. I regularly take part in community service and charity events and believe this has given me a good work ethic, experience of interacting with different kinds of people and the ability to work well in a team. I also have my own transport and am punctual and reliable.

    I have enclosed my resume and can supply references upon request.

    I look forward to the opportunity to discuss how I can contribute to your team.

     

  • I am sending you lots of good vibes!

    Thanks so much, you've helped a lot. Going to try and sit down now to write it out to have posted tomorrow! Doc-thanks for the good vibes :)
  • This thread is a big help.

    Best of luck and good vibes with your applications!
  • I would mention how your previous experience (regardless of what you've done) prepares you to succeed in this type of job.  Working with the public, multitasking, whatever it may be.

    Best of luck!

  • Thanks for all the good vibes, guys! Keep 'em comin'. I've written out my letter and will post it off first thing in the morning. Kind of nervous, but I guess if I don't put myself out there I'll never know, right?!
