Sample Qualifications Letter

You may download and tweak the sample qualifications letter below for personal use. The download version is in rich-text format (RTF), suitable for most word processors and safe to download.

When tailoring the sample qualifications letter, include only the job requirements that your qualifications meet or exceed, or soon will. It's okay to paraphrase the employer's job requirements to fit the format, but don't change them to match your qualifications.

The sample qualifications letter below is in full block style, as is the download version. But you may convert it to any of the other standard business letter styles for personal use.
