Reading cover letter samples is a great way to learn how to write a good one for your job search. That's why I invited readers to post their best cover letters — so that we all learn what works... and what doesn't.

Sharing Cover Letter Samples
I've written lots of articles on how to write a cover letter. In this article, instead of me doing all the talking, I suggested we put our heads together to come up with cover letter samples that help each other right here on the website.
I asked readers to post your letters (below in the comments section) and tell us why they thought their letters were good. If they had questions, they could ask. Then, someone in the group would give his or her two cents. The goal was to have a nice give-and-take.
As you see, it worked pretty well. The sample cover letters that folks submitted (below) are filled with ideas (some good, some not so good) and the comments, I hope, are useful in learning how to write a good letter.
