Cover Letter for Banking Jobs
A cover letter acts as a summary of your resume in a nutshell. It gives a clear picture of what your resume is. You can mention the important points of your resume that you think will lure the reader to follow up the latter.
It also gives a clear picture of your ideas and confidence regarding your job profile, to the recruiter or the employer. This letter also acts as a bonding bridge between the reader and the sender. It gives a personal touch to your resume and profile, thus increasing your chances of getting selected or called for the interview. It helps to gear a conversation with the reader- conversation being one of the important aspects of relationship.
There are many types of cover letters, like; job application cover letter, job acknowledgement cover letter, salary negotiation cover letter, resignation cover letter, thank you cover letter and many more. An 'acknowledging job offer' cover letter is usually written in response to an offer letter, sent by the employer of the organization where you had applied for a job. In this type of cover letter you have to acknowledge the job offered by the employer and thank him/her for considering you as a suitable candidate for the post. You have to keep in mind that there is a huge difference between a 'job acceptance cover letter' and a 'job acknowledgement cover letter. A job acceptance cover letter is written when you have decided to join the firm for the given post. A job acknowledgement cover letter is written when you are going through various job opportunities but not decided whether to accept the given proposal or not.
In the first section of this cover letter, you have to write the objective with which you are writing this cover letter. You have to tell the employer that you are writing this letter to appreciate his consideration. Then write that you are thankful to the employer for considering you. The employer would have given you a deadline to inform him/her about your decision, so you have to say that you will surely let him/her know before the deadline. See to it that your language is polite and not offensive. The employer must not get the impression that you are no longer interested in the job and you are avoiding him/her. Further you can thank the employer for giving you time to think and take a decision on the offer. You can end the letter by saying that you will give the employer a call if there is any need. You can attach your phone number here once more, though you have given it in your resume. This would make it convenient for the employer to call you if any need arises. End the letter by thanking him/her.
