Gone are the days when dull and mundane cover letters were appreciated – they are not even “considered” now.
Life runs in the fast lane nowadays, and no one has the time or patience to do or read a letter that will not give them something to think about. Conventional cover letters have nothing new to say.
As an entry-level candidate for a research analyst position, you should be able to communicate in a manner that changes everything for the reader. Something that makes him go into a stupor of professional bliss that spells – I WANT THIS MAN! That is not as impossible as it seems.
If you can bring yourself to think out of the box, when writing a cover letter, you can easily win an interview.
Think criterion – what is the criterion of your communication with a prospective employer through a cover letter? Maximum message readability. That can only be achieved if your cover letter writing ideas are innovative and your content is something that has never been read before!
Since you cannot just tell the employer “Hey! Read this!” you have to write something that suggests the same without actually saying so.
The cover letter sample given below is that of a research analyst applying for an entry-level position:
