The sample career change cover letter below features Hillary Thompson, a customer service professional with 5 years' experience working as a Customer Sales Advisor. She now wants to transition her skills towards the banking and finance sector and applies for a Personal Banker position using three short paragraphs. In this career change cover letter example, she starts by first affirming her suitability for the position (even though it is in a different industry sector) because of her relevant customer service and sales skills which she wants to leverage to transition into banking and finance. She is indeed a suitable candidate because the Personal Banker job she is seeking requires the same transferable sales and customer service skills she already demonstrates daily in her current role as a Customer Sales Advisor.

In the second paragraph, she expands on her current role as a Customer Sales Advisor, highlighting her achievements and demonstration of relevant transferable skills. In the third and final paragraph, Hillary concludes by re-iterating her suitability for the vacant Personal Banker position.
