Cover letters that actually work and earn the candidate’s resume a detailed and favorable look are carefully written in an individualized manner. There is no such thing as a general cover letter, if you are writing a cable installer cover letter it implies that you need to come up with a customized letter, tailored to cater for the needs of the specific employer.
Begin by stating your intention: After a powerful and catchy opener, jump directly to your intent in writing the letter. The first paragraph must contain the name of your desired post so the employer is informed right from the beginning.
Include relevant information: You may have been the sports team captain for three years in high school but if that does not relate to the current job you are applying for, it’s not an accomplishment worthy of your limited and highly precious cover letter space. Make sure all information you provide is job specific.

Dear Mr. Feldman:
I am applying for a cable installer position at CABLE CONNECTORS because of two reasons. Firstly my profile perfectly fits to your job description. Secondly, my 5+ years’ relevant experience and a first class associate’s degree in telecommunications will help me contributing to your bottom line.
In addition to being well versed in CATV, DSL, Direct TV and HVAC, I bring a track record of accurately routing, installing and configuring broadband and networking equipment which will definitely come in very handy at CABLE CONNECTIONS at this point since you are at the verge of launching internet services nationwide.
I would welcome an interview with you to discuss the position further and will call your office next week to obtain a suitable date and time for meeting. In the interim, my resume is enclosed for your review. I’d be glad to answer any questions regarding my background and qualifications at (004) 333 – 6666.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
