Sample Motivation Letters

Create résumé

If you create your CV based on a sample CV you’ve found on the Internet, it’s a good idea to supplement it by writing a motivation letter before you send the CV to your new potential employer. A motivation letter is sometimes also called a cover letter (as you will see in the 2017 sample below), but in principle it is the same document.

Don’t forget to be creative; your motivation letter should not just be a copy of the sample letters presented here. Try to completely modify the sample letter to suit your individual needs. Our article on How to Write a Motivation Letter presents a couple of sample cover letters to serve as a source of inspiration to you.

Rules for Writing a Cover Letter

When writing, a sample cover/motivation letter, you should follow some specifics and rules. Be as particular about your motivation letter as your CV. A cover letter is another document which lets your new potential employer form his/her first opinion...
