Referring to a sample letter is a nice way to start especially when you are not able to express your intentions clearly through writing. However, the problem with going through sample is that it may or may not match with your qualification, skills, and experience. Nevertheless, you must still refer them to spark your own ideas and imaginations.
It is an unhidden fact that many people fear when writing cover letter. Hence, they take help of professional writers. While it is a good practice to get it written by someone who can help you in expressing your intentions and interest through writing, you can at least start practicing on your own by going through this sample resume cover letter.
