Cover letter for this right?

  1. I am going to an interview tomorrow and was wondering how to open up my cover letter.

    I was thinking something like.. "Thank you for the opportunity to interview with your company. Please accept the following documents...." & so on.

    OR should I just stick with the traditional, "I am writing to express my interest in position...."

    I just feel like option #2 is unnecessary since I already got the interview!

    I might be missing something, but I'm not clear on why you'd be bringing a cover letter to an interview. As you said, you've already been asked to interview. I thought cover letters were only for submitting a resume or related document during that part of the process where you're trying to get them interested enough in you to select you for an interview. I'd just bring several copies of your resume (in case you meet with a few people separately) and a couple of copies of anything else they've requested or that you might anticipate they'd need (e.g., nursing license, etc.). I'd just spend tonight getting prepared, and coming up with answers to questions that you think they might ask. Good luck!

    Why would you be writing a cover letter for an interview? The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce yourself and to convince the prospective employer to grant you an interview....

    I looked up many times whether or not I should bring one and I saw many people who said it couldn't hurt, so I decided to just bring one.

    No need to bring your coverletter to the interview. Instead, bring 3 copies of resume along with typed reference list (minimum 3 persons not related to you) as neede by HR for reference check.

    Best wishes with interview.
