Need a cover letter for a management position? The following sample cover letter is perfect for those in management, including supervisors, team leaders, and staff/project managers. With some tweaking, the cover letter could also be used by executives as well. Cover letters for managers typically encompass the following skills:
- Staffing/Manpower Allocation
- Project Budgeting
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Hiring, Training, Coaching Staff
- Infrastructure Realignment
- Process Improvements
- Vendor Relations
- … ensure your cover letter uses management skills relevant to you
Hyo’s Note – This cover letter is a bit wordy but not bad. Although she uses a generous amount of personal pronouns; you can also feel her taking to relate it to the reader’s needs. It is a more benefits focuse than most – that’s good. Also her call to action is there but humble and I think that works. One caustion – don’t give too much away in a cover letter. It shouldn’t replicate the resume.

RE: Staff Supervisor/Project Manager
Are my words catchy? After all, the only reason for this cover letter is to grab your attention to introduce myself, as well as, outline the depth of supervisory and management experience I possess with the hopes of obtaining an interview. For example, my skill set encompasses staff management, just-in-time delivery, purchasing/procurement of materials, and realignment of workstations … amongst other core knowledge relevant to the supervisory role.
I’m hoping you are looking for more than just an eye-catching document, but rather, the resume of a candidate who reflects the qualifications and skills necessary to get the job done. I’m a seasoned production professional who a fair number years of experience overseeing large-scale manufacturing crews within a production setting.
The management/specialty skills I hold specific to your job opening include …
- Management of a 300-person production crew
- Conducting monthly staff training classes
- Scheduling JIT delivery of raw materials
- Working closely with clients and suppliers
- Overseeing priming and equipment coatings — liquid, polyester, polyurethane, acrylic, and hybrid combinations
I would greatly enjoy discussing this position with you. If acceptable, I will contact you over the next couple of days to verify receipt of my resume, answer any questions you have, and schedule an interview at your convenience.
Thank you for your time.
