When you're looking for your first job, it isn't strange to be writing a no-experience cover letter. You aren't alone, but they can be challenging, because you'll need to identify skills and experiences that you've gained outside of employment. When people write a no-experience cover letter, they assume that they have absolutely no experience and forget about the skills that are gained through volunteering and education.

Dear Mr. Loss,
Re: Seasonal Sales Associate
You will find attached my CV for your consideration. I am interested in applying for the Seasonal Sales Associate role that I discovered on indeed.com, advertised by your company J. Jewels Inc.
I recently graduated from a course in Business Management at Nowhere University, where I was extremely involved in the running of several student-led societies and extracurricular activities. During my time at University I volunteered my time to be the finance officer of two of the societies and spent several hours a week dedicating my time to ensuring that the society's funds were properly accounted for and attending meetings with other committee members.
My involvement with the student body at Nowhere University has enabled me to gain strong communication and interpersonal social skills. The experiences I've had over the last few years have allowed me to develop good time management, organisational skills, and amazing attention to detail. I am used to working as part of a team, but I have also retained the initiative needed to work alone when needed. I have a very positive attitude, and I am quite flexible in my working hours, which I believe will be perfect for this position. I am known to frequently exceed what is expected of me, and I thrive well under pressure.
I have been looking for an opportunity to showcase my skills and take my first true step into the working world. I believe that this job role with J. Jewels Inc. could be the exact door that I need to open to gain positive life experience outside of my studies.
I am excited to discuss my application with you further, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,John Doe

There is a large number of experiences you've likely had that have contributed to a skillset you might not be aware of.
