Dear Mr. Cummings:

I would like to apply and, if qualified, interview for the claims adjuster position advertised in the Citizen Times. For the past fifteen years I have been with a major insurance company, primarily focusing on workers' compensation claims. My accomplishments, all cited on the attached resume, required a sound background in claims management, cost containment, customer relations, employee training, and administrative support. I am proud that annually, for the past five years, I have cost-effectively negotiated well over two hundred claims. I would be as proud of my future achievements if you allow me to become a member of the Any Insurance team.

In summary, my qualifications, motivations, and achievements include:

  • Over 15 years of progressively responsible claims experience, encompassing life, health, and auto, but specializing in worker's compensation.

  • Knowledge of laws and regulations pertaining to claims and potential outcomes of litigation.

  • Experience conducting extensive research, working with investigators, and appropriately interacting with policy-holders, physicians, health-care practitioners, and legal professionals.

  • Record of success coordinating detailed data and negotiating effectively with claimants, professional peers, corporate management, and others to arrive at mutually favorable solutions.

  • Experience training, establishing goals for, monitoring, and supervising claims professionals.

I hope I can share my qualifications for the adjuster position with Any Insurance. My salary requirements are appropriate for the position, so please, let's discuss my desire to become a strong contributor to your claims efforts. References are available upon request. I will call to confirm your receipt of this letter and to clarify appropriate next steps.

Sincerely,

Chris Smith
