Cover Letter Writing Tips

Cover letter is complimentary to your CV. Job seekers normally attached their resume to their cover letter and send them out to potential recruiters. Such are letters introducing yourself to the potential employee by giving them a rough idea about your skills, qualifications and work experiences. Different organizations have different requirements. You need to write separate cover letters for each. Never resort to the ‘carbon copy’ cover letter as it lacks authenticity.

Today we have come up with the 7 good Cover Letter tips and letter etiquette that will help you come up with the best cover letter and help you stand out of the crowd.

Advice & Guidelines for Writing a Top Cover Letter for a Job

1. Let your cover letter convey a personal tone. Common methods of addressing include ‘Dear Sir/Madam’ or ‘To Whom It May Concern’. However, you may always break the obvious and get a bit personal by adding salutations such as ‘Dear (last name of the recruiter)’.

2. No one has the time to read pages after pages about your skills and accomplishments. Hence get to the point and try to wrap up everything in the most precise manner as possible. Any paragraph should not be more than seven lines long and must be able to have that convincing grip to hold the recruiter.

3. Understand the demands of the employer and the organization. Different companies have different objectives. Hence, copy-pasting your cover letter will never help. Focus on the specific needs and address your strengths about how your inclusion to the company will prove fruitful. Align the company’s goals with your qualifications and see how it works miracle.

4. Be genuine and authentic. Come up with your creativity. For example, you may include excerpts of your performance reviews to talk about your success record and show a way how it would complement the company’s criteria.

5. Keep the tone balanced i.e. in between professional and personal. Do not overdo any of the two. Your letter should sound friendly, creative and approachable. It should at no cost sound robotic.

6. The layout should look professional. Use font size of 12 to 14. They are considered as the standard size. However, people over 40 appreciate larger font. Use left alignment and single or double space depending on the length of the letter.

7. Proof reading is very important. Watch out for grammar or spelling mistakes as they kill the essence of the letter. Keep the spelling and grammar check on in your system and go through it a couple of times before sending it out.

Follow these rules and see interview calls pouring on your lap in no time. All the best in job hunting!
