Our advantage is that we offer rich, 'real world worthy' cover letters produced by IT professionals with access to our massive research database. They are factual, no nonsense, accurate and moulded by actual cover letters that were short listed by employers.
Note the systems administrator cover letters below - It has a short and concise introduction clearly stating intent. It aligns the candidate's experience with the requirements of the offered position and it directly addresses skills and technologies relevant to a systems administrator.
Finally, it concludes with a courteous call to action. Working as part of a team will be important so showing enthusiasm with words such as "I look forward" is very important. It is also equally important to sound genuine because credibility is key, so be careful not to overdo it with over exuberant phrases and tacky one liners as suggested by some other sites.
