    Hey I'm trying to get an entry level job and I was wondering if anyone could critique my cover letter.

    A couple of changes I would make. At the beginning, say "I AM interested..." rather than "I WAS interested..." since, after all, you presumably are still interested. Proficiency is MS Word isn't a big deal and is probably not worth mentioning in the cover letter unless the job posting explicitly refers to it.

    One thing to think about is what kind of position are you looking for, and how to tailor the cover letter to that. For instance, if the advertisement for the position says that you will be working closely with other departments, and that appeals to you, say it.
