There is a lot to be said about cover letter writing – but not all can be believed. A cover letter is a sensitive document which is used to communicate your abilities and accomplishments to a prospective employer. You cannot write sparingly in it. Whatever you do write, needs to be relevant and written in a manner that it matters to the person reading it.
Let’s face it – the competition out there is great. Much more so than it was in 2015. Jobs are few and contenders for them are a lot – the ratio is quite messed up. What are the chances of you bagging a job? The chances are great but only if you follow all the rules that have been laid down here. Words and sentences that stick are the ones that need to be chosen. If you write that you have accomplished, , established, formulated, played a key role in, produced or took a lead in something, you are quickly creating an interest in your candidature. By using the right words, you can make your cover letter the best that a hiring manager has seen.
Action closes help. Close your letter by telling the hiring manager that you will call for an interview. By setting the agenda, you assure the hiring manager that you are a go-getter and will not just wait for things to happen.
Enough chat. Let’s show you some action with this cover letter sample:
