There are some nice templates in Microsoft Word that stand out. Keep it short and sweet. Highlight something that pertains specifically to the position or company, so it doesn't seem like you just changed the addressee.

You Need a Power Resume
Flag
If you google "Best Generic cover letters" you can find a few that will fit. You can also google a cover letter sample in your field, ex: "teacher cover letter sample"You shouldn't make it too long. Usually 3-4 paragraphs. Sometimes a few bullets to outline accomplishments or special features. First paragraph should introduce who you are and what position you are applying for. Second /Third should summarize information in your resume and any other additional characteristics about yourself you want to add. The third paragraph asks for the interview. We don't use templates to do our resumes or cover letters, so I don't have any to show you. We work from scratch! Good luck!

Hi. I am looking for a job and decided that having a tailored cover letter is best (for me). It is easy - start with a statement of why you are interested, add a sentence or two as to why you are perfect for the job and then sign it with a call to action or positive end long. I used to read cover letters in my HR job and would browse them. Short, simple and smart worked for me. All the best to you!
