Retired persons often opt for consultancy jobs in their own field. If you are seeking a job after retirement, you definitely need a cover letter to go with your resume. Below are some effective tips for cover letter writing.
• Highlight your most relevant experience to convince the reader of your practice in the field
• Mention a few accomplishments in the cover letter
• Express some knowledge about the hiring company’s current challenges and demonstrate that you have the solution to those
• Use the cover letter to communicate your personality traits that your resume does not, make it personal yet professional
• Always conclude your letter by saying when and how you intend to follow up
