Referral Cover Letter for Working Mom Seeking Work After Employment Gap

Dear Ma’am,

Please accept this letter as my expression of my interest to join your roster of specialists at your new online media department. I was informed by Clemone Burke of your Marketing team that you are seeking to fill 10 vacancies for Social Media Specialists.

Reviewing my credentials, I have held a technical supervisory position for six years at where I trained in handling ecommerce, delivery and shipping accounts. This was before I moved into Miami and got married. Though I have been a SAHM (Work-at-home-mom) the last 3 years, you will note that I have consistently taken in online work as a virtual assistant for a Miami-based budget travel website.

I consider my valuable time at home a learning process; through my online work at I have gained important knowledge in many facets of social media marketing and linkbuilding. I have devoted my energy to balancing key aspects of work and home life, I would say I have been very successful at it. I am able to care for my child and effectively meet deadlines at work at the same time.

Now that my son is entering preschool, I can now actively pursue full-time employment. My objective now is to secure a position as a Social Media Specialist, as I consider myself now an expert in handling accounts on twitter, facebook, formspring, myspace and other social media platforms. My resume is enclosed, so you may view my skills and experiences in greater detail. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications in a personal interview.

Cover Letter Mentioning Job Referral from Someone

Here's how to mention a contact who referred you to a job in your cover letter. In a way its networking and creating credibility at the same time. Most companies have employee referral programs and referrals may be done by colleagues, friends, business contacts. So learn by example:

Dear Mr. Berendt,

I received your name from Ms. Evans of Wharton Electric a few days ago. I spoke to her regarding possible career opportunities with Meyers Consulting Services and she suggested getting in touch with you. She assured me that she would forward my resume to you; In case she hasn’t yet, I am sending you my CV.

Your recent acquisition of Wharton Software would indicate your intent to pursue market opportunities in the technology field. I believe my technical and management background in software consulting and programming would complement your long term plans in such a dynamic industry. With the shortage of qualified personnel in the Southeastern area, it is my thought that you would be interested in my qualifications, please see enclosed resume.

I would very much like to discuss career opportunities with Meyers Consulting Services. Should any question arise regarding any information on my resume, please do not hesitate to contact me through my contact details.

I look forward to speaking with you.

Oliver Spurgen
