Hi Janna Katrina,

 

You can add the portfolio items of the work you've done for your clients outside of Upwork or even create samples to demonstrate the skills you do.

 

Thank you.

Yes its true - Don't use a template cover letter. Don't look at someone else's sample. Voice work? Keep your letter short. Who really cares what you write? Your portfolio/samples and past reviews/feedback are what is important.

Just show your honesity and put point to point words. dont create your cover letter as NOvel.

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.
