What makes your cover letter stand out to employers?

Senior Technical Recruiter, Indeed
J. Palmer

I’m an experienced recruiter and I’ve been a hiring manager, too. I’ve seen the same mistakes again and again throughout my career. But if you take a little extra time to avoid these common problems, your cover letter should really stand out!

Remember these four questions to help you write a successful cover letter and get hired:

  • Why do you want to work for the company? What interests you about them?
    • Talk about how your personality and skills align with what they do
  • Why are you a good fit for this company and the job?
    • Write about how your past work, life experiences and skills meet the important requirements of the job
  • How are you personalizing this cover letter sample?
    • Tailor your cover letter to the job you’re applying for
    • Address the cover letter to whoever will be reading it. If you don’t know who will be reading it, you can address it as “To the Hiring Committee” or “To the Hiring Manager”
  • Have you proofread your cover letter?
    • Make sure to check for correct spelling and grammar before sending out your cover letter!

Dear HR Manager,

I am interested in your posting for a new medical biller in your organization and believe that I will be an invaluable addition to your corporation with my comprehensive knowledge and experience in this field.

Coupled with solid educational background, I am extremely familiar with the insurance guidelines, current legislation, payers system, coding and medical terminology. I am adept in reviewing patient bills, debt resolution, accounting, bookkeeping, investigating discrepancies and resolving issues arising from claims. I consistently exceed expectation throughout my career with minimum claim refusals and delay. As a result, I have been given the opportunity by my superior to take on more responsibility than my peers.

On top of my well rounded on job experience, I am also equipped with interpersonal skills having maintained a conducive working relationship with my colleagues and interacting effectively with patients from diverse backgrounds.

I thoroughly enjoy my work as the job requirement is aligned with my personal qualities of being meticulous and my ability to multitask calmly and efficiently against a tight schedule. Throughout my years of experience, I have maintained a highly ethical and conscientious working standard upholding patient’s confidentiality.
