Career change cover letter template

A cover letter is an elegant way to introduce yourself. A career change cover letter on the other hand, has to impress and persuade.

It is your chance to explain, in no more than 3-4 paragraphs, why you bring value to the prospective employer.

You should devote at least half the cover letter to your transferable skills, and how they will create value to your new employer.

Because of that, you shouldn't write a personal history, but instead give your potential employer a preview of the great work you will do for them.

You need a career change cover letter when you want to leave the job you are in behind to move to a new direction. As your letter competes against others already in your new field of choice, your resume cover letter has to be a standout.
