Writing a cover letter blindly automatically kills its essence. If you are not aware of what purpose a cover letter serves, find out before you begin writing one. Typically, a cover letter is written to a hiring manage who doesn’t know you from Adam, to get to know you on a professional level. But one thing needs to be kept in mind when writing a cover letter – the hiring manager does not want to know everything about you. He just wants to gain information that is important to him.
Since you have never met the hiring manager, how would you know what he wants? This is no problem to gauge. It is obvious that hiring managers do not want to hire you for personal benefit. It has to be deeper than that. What a hiring manager wants is written clearly in the job description for the job that you will be applying to. And that is the need that you have to fulfil. Simple? Of course! Cover letter writing is very simple – you just have to know how to word your content to make sure that it is relevant. And that is all!
