When you’re looking for a job, a good cover letter can be your gateway to a whole new career. First of all, there’s no need to restate your resume. In a cover letter, you’re telling a very short story of the important points or key skills that would make you perfect for the job.
Three Paragraphs: A strong cover letter includes at least three clear paragraphs. The first paragraph explains the job you’re applying for and highlights a few key credentials.. This is the first part that your prospective manager will read so be sure to catch his or her attention right away. The middle paragraphs should directly refer to the job post and should discuss how your particular skill set matches up with the job posting. How are you exactly what they want? Tell them in the middle paragraph. The final paragraph explains how you will follow up with the company.
Simple Font: Submitting a cover letter in an exotic font or large type won’t get attention but may get you ignored. Instead, opt for a simple, easy-to-read font like Arial or Times New Roman, size 12.
Match the Language: Mimic the language used in the ad placement. If the placement asks for sales experience, try to put that phrase in your cover letter somewhere. Why? It’s important to create a sense of natural harmony between your cover letter and the job posting.
