The fact that you are a communicative individual goes a long way in making your cover letter climb the success ladder. How you highlight the information in it is what matters the most. Of course, what you write is important too but if the information that you are presenting is not all that easy to understand, it kind of defeats the purpose of writing a cover letter.
It is true that cover letters are not what they used to be some years ago. They have evolved in a manner that is sometimes hard to believe. How can a simple letter to inform an employer about a candidate’s abilities have come this far? Well, let’s blame it on competition for now. The fact that there are at least a dozen other people out there who are as competent as you are matters. The evolution of a cover letter was bound to be this fast. You have to come out on top by making it obvious that no one can touch your candidature. If you are a professional individual, it will show in what and how you write your cover letter. If you are anything less, that will show up too.

Mr. Gregory Hall
Basic Energy Services

Aberdeen, SD 54252
Dear Mr. Hall:
Rigorous training, subsequent apprenticeship and over 4 years of experience in working as a floorhand has prepared me extremely well to work in a contributory role at Basic Energy Services. I am positive that once you see how diligently I’ve performed my duties as a floorhand at Martin Works Inc. (my present place of employment) you will be convinced that I am indeed the best choice you have to hire.
Here is how I qualify:
• Demonstrated ability to inspect tongs, breakout lines and snub lines to determine damage or / and excessive wear.
• Highly experienced in performing regular drilling operations including drilling pipes connections and digging ditches and handling mechanical repairs.
• Deep familiarity with handling pipe racking work by manually pushing suspended lengths of pipes as directed.
• Well-versed in performing predictive and regular maintenance work on drilling rigs.
My enthusiasm is palpable as you will find out when we meet in person. To provide you with a clearer view of my abilities, I will call you soon to arrange a meeting. Until then, I can be contacted at (000) 874-8585.
