01. Check on your personality
Yes, the employer wants to know something about your personality. Remember, when you were crafting a resume, it covered your professional details. Now, here comes a cover letter. You should not be too personal, but just a little bit. It should be a personal document which is conveyed in a professional manner. Hope that makes sense, right? Well, jump to the second tip and learn more.
02. It amends the resume
I know, you must have spent a lot of time perfecting your resume, but just a quick reminder, there must have been some gaps left. Instead of leaving a potential employer with unanswered questions, the cover letter comes to your rescue. It gives you an opportunity to explain who you are and how you stand out to be the best candidate. You love it, right? I know, let's head to the third tip.
03. It hits the nail on the head
Yes, I just used those words to be more specific. The employer does not have more time. He/she is reading a pile of cover letters. You have to grab the opportunity and tell the employer your focus, what you will do to the company and why you are the best. All that, no more no less. Be smart, make it short, clear, and be straight to the point. I am almost done , but before that, I want to share with you two more key secrets then we call it a day. Heading to tip four right away!
04. It must be directed to a specific address.
The tip is, be sure to know the real name of the person your cover letter is directed to. The use of " Dear sir/Madam, will less likely land you to the person you would want to receive it. The catch is, be sure to read the job description well, and know the address to which the cover letter should be directed to. Now, use the address in your cover letter.
05. The cover letter ending
A good cover letter must have an attractive or if you like, an appealing ending. Use better wordings. For instance, you can say; Thank you so much for your time, I am looking forward to being interviewed by your reputable company soon.
