Medical Transcriptionist Cover Letter Example

How To Write A Medical Transcription Cover Letter?

When looking for a medical transcription job online most employers do not require a cover letter, but it is always good to have one in case they do. Most of the time the company specifies whether they want a cover letter or not accompanied with the resume. When I was applying online for jobs, I only send a cover letter if the company requested one.

A cover letter is used as a quick reference into your personality, qualifications for the position, and communication skills, but also indicates that you are the right person for this company. The cover letter is the first contact you will have with a potential employer – so this can be a breaking point whether they continue onto your resume or not.

Here are a couple of things that you need to keep in mind when writing your medical transcription cover letter:

  • Opening paragraph – Why you are writing; how you learned of the position, and basic information about yourself.
  • Second paragraph – What you have to offer. So briefly state two or three top skills (from the Summary section of your resume), then immediately follow with the benefits that you can provide to the company.
  • Conclusion paragraph – Indicate that you would like the opportunity to talk with the employer to learn more about their opportunities or hiring plans. State what you will do to follow up, such as telephone the employer within two weeks. State that you would be glad to provide the employer with any additional information needed. Thank the employer for her/his consideration.

Proofread: Remember to make sure to check and recheck the cover letter for grammar, spelling, and punctuation as well.
