Sample Urban Planner Cover Letter

An urban planner cover letter shows the hiring manager that the job hunter knows the profession-which involves figuring out the best way to use the land in cities and neighborhoods for houses, stores, and parks. All urban planner cover letters should let the hiring managers know the applicants' experience and expertise.
