Free Graphic Design Cover Letter
A strong graphic design cover letter is an important part of your job search. I came across a great cover letter template a few years ago and I’d like to share it with you. It’s great for freelance gigs or full time work. Part of what makes this cover letter so strong is that it’s short and to the point. (Think about the number of cover letters HR managers and decision makers receive on a weekly basis.) The other great thing about this cover letter is the closing. I like that it sets you up for a follow-up phone call. Below is the template for the cover letter. Simply cut, paste and fill in the blanks highlighted in red.
