Download your free career practitioner-designed cover letter template

Start your job readiness lesson with a modern, clear, and easy template to create their first cover letter

Help them make a great first impression

All it takes is a 10 second read of a cover letter for a potential employer to decide if they want to look further into hiring a young employee. When it comes to cover letters, they’re quite impactful – and important to get right.  

That’s why we designed a free cover letter template to help make the process of teaching it simple and easy. 

Step-by-Step Cover Letter Writing

Each section of the editable cover letter template has simple prompts that explain what to write and where, so it’s as easy as following it step-by-step.

It covers all of the basics, including:

  • Introduction
  • Good fit statement
  • Reasons and examples why
  • Wrap-up

All ready to use in your career education classes.

Designed to help them 'look good'

We’re not talking about appearances here. 

The written word can give lots of different impressions about the person writing it, so by giving you students a best-practice structure to follow, you’ll help them give a great first impression in writing. 

PLUS there are included examples too (so you can show your students what a good cover letter looks like). 

Our free student cover letter template is designed to be:

Single page
A good Cover Letter should be brief and interesting, so your new template helps them do this 

Scannable
Many employers (especially national employers) use application-scanning software, so this template is designed to be readable

Impactful
By highlighting things like their experience, core skills, strengths, interests, and achievements, it gives a great first impression

Best of all, you’ll get the template in a Microsoft Word-compatible format, so you can adjust it and use it as many times as you like.
