Hi,

The first step is to read the job offer carefully to make sure it fits your set of skills and your availability: you want to make sure that you can meet the clients needs on time.

Then, just be honest about why you're a good fit and showcase a specific project that resembles/answers the same  parametres as the job offer.

If possible, include a link to your website or a portfolio and always keep your profile information updated. This is also valid for the portfolio section on your profile page.

ps - avoid generic and impersonal cover letters.

Dear,

After reading your offer this looks like a perfect fit for my skill sets. I have built a large number of creative designs for different businesses.

My name is Amidner and I am an indian web graphic designer. I love web and graphic designs and have great portfolio with different mockups.

I can assure you several things in addition that I am a professional designer:
- I have a great design sense for European corporate design
- I am an indian with native English. I can guarantee quality in communications.
- I work extremely fast and with high quality


Thank you and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Aminder,

Aminder:

 

I appreciate your attempt to provide a sample job proposal letter.


Maybe this would work with some jobs. But generally speaking, what you posted is not what I would suggest, and I don't think it is the route to success.

 

Your job proposal is all about you.

 

But when I post a job, as a client, I want the job proposal to be about ME.

 

I want it to be about ME and my project.

 

In your proposal, you don't say anything at all about me and my project. So I would not be impressed or pleased by this.

Saxon, as Preston and a few others have said - build a professional portfolio of sample work before trying to land a job.

 

V/O talent is hired based on:

1. How the voice sounds

2. Quality of production (this assumes you have a 'sound studio' of sorts]

3. Your ability to modulate your voice and style to cover a range of needs 

4. Accents you can emulate to perfection -otherwise do not claim you can!

 

All your cover letter has to include is a line or two and samples of relevant samples + your fee and dilivery date.

Lots of about "I - ME - MYSELF". Nothing relates to "You - The Client"

 

The key thing in the cover letter has to be all about "You - The Client and The Project" it should cover all the aspects about the job.

 

We are here for job, not to show how cute you are. You never gets a job just based on your cover letters. Always apply kiss rule. Keep It Simple Stupid/Smarty.

You have to read your job carefully then mention your quality as well as you have to know client demand.
