Cover letters have their own personalities. Each cover letter is different from the next – in cases where it isn’t different, there is a great chance of “not so different cover letters” being binned. Why is that? There is no reason simpler than the fact that old is boring. The same old cover letter writing techniques that people have been using for decades have now become stale – so stale that employers can actually tell what you are going to write by reading the first line of your cover letter. Doesn’t inspire much confidence, does it? Well, neither do boringly written cover letters.
The changing face of the world needs more in terms of competitive writing. The more original your cover letter content, the higher your chances of employment. Cover letters of “today” need more than mere content – they should be able to tell stories of success. Your success and that of the company for which you were working previously. These success indicators are what will get you the job.
How does one put these in? It is not complicated to do at all. All you have to do is make your cover letter content-rich with accomplishments and / or skills. The former will tell a prospective employer how well you performed in a previous position and how you can replicate that in your new one. The latter will give a potential employer information on how you managed to do all that you did.
