    The best way setting for writing a good cover letter would be if you were looking for work with a small company and had some sort of unique interest in the company, such with their product, or services or other such functions. For example, suppose I wanted to work for Open Study. If I wanted to do that, then Preetha would be my point of contact, and I would write her a cover letter expressing things such as: 1. My interest in the company (with the goal of expressing my familiarity with the company and its operations) 2. My impressions (the things that have impressed me or that I really appreciate about the company and that make the company unique) 3. How I can help improve the company (my unique talents). If you include these three things in your cover letter it would be great. Once again, having some kind of relationship with your employer helps. At the very least, you should know their name so that you can address them by name in your cover letter.

    The number 3 is important because the employer will be interested in what makes you unique...what makes you stand out. It would directly express to them exactly why they should hire you. You want to express to them the unique talents, skills, ideas you will bring to their table.

    Good luck with your cover letter. If you finish it, I'd like to critique/proofread it for you. And perhaps others would also have some things to add to it to help you improve it.

    Well, I gave you a sort of outline for it. The list above is the general guideline you'll want to follow. Again, at the very least, you need a point of contact--the name of the person who you are addressing you will read your cover letter. Writing this cover letter will require some creativity or your part, some out of the box thinking, and a bit of brainstorming. Saying "you don't know where to start" is like giving yourself writer's block. You can't think like that if you want to write a successful letter. Instead, say to yourself, "Okay, here is exactly what I'm going to do to create a good cover letter" and then write those things down in a list. I assure you, it is not difficult to think this way.

    I'm just trying to help you get started. The getting started part is as easy as picking up a pencil/paper

    It also requires a proper state of mind 1. Knowing that completing this is what you want to do 2. Eliminating any distractions or negative thoughts

    Find out more things about the company. How long has that particular store been open? Where you around at their Grand Opening? Who is the owner? What do you know about them if anything? If not, find out someone who knows the owner or manager or talk to the manager/owner yourself. Try to understand who they are and what their intentions are. Show an interest in them. If you are not able to do this, then at the very least make sure you have their name. This way, when you write the first part of your letter you can mention things like I understand that your company has been in business for x years. You may not have been aware of this but I was one of your first customers. I always enjoyed the available product line and have even made suggestions to the store regarding products that myself and the general public might be interested in. ...something like that

    i believe the objective would state briefly the reson you wish to work there. besides you wanting to earn a long term position but rather why you want to work at that particular company... you dont have to state all reasons two would suffice... (thats what i think anyway)
