Welcome to the Cover Letter Gallery!
We have a variety of authentic cover letter samples created by students for the SFU community from different faculties and job sectors. You can use these samples to learn how junior and senior students showcase their experiences and skills, get inspired by diverse design styles, and understand how students craft their unique accomplishment statements and communicate their transferable skills. Keep in mind that these samples are not "perfect" nor the "best", but rather samples that have some great elements, as well as elements that can be improved. Pay close attention to the Annotations and Skills noted at the bottom of each cover letter, as this will help guide you in your own cover letter-building.
This gallery is for inspiration, not imitation.
So, please be respectful of the student contributors who want to help students like you. Because employers can easily recognize if the following samples are copied, it's a good idea to make you don't plagarize any samples.
