There are two types of letters accompanying your resume

1. Response to concrete job offer
2. Self-candidacy, without prior job offer, in this case what interests us is that the company has our resume in its database.

Our contact information, with date and heading followed by 3 paragraphs, first and third we can use them as models to make our letter.

In the second paragraph we have to talk about us, it's time to give a boost to our candidacy, mention those more subjective aspects that are not shown in our resume and that are of interest, for example our professional skills, merits, interests, justification of why we consider ourselves interesting ...
