Cover letter writing has never been as cumbersome as it is now. Employers expect way too much and we as mere humans cannot always live up to their expectations. Often, this situation leaves us in a quandary that we do not how to handle. The trick is not to worry too much. Worry only as much that it will help you write a killer cover letter. Do your best, and you can leave the rest to the prospective employer to handle!
Writing a cover letter requires a little effort at your end. Knowing your audience is important. Find out who is going to read your cover letter and then write whatever it is that you have to write accordingly. Making the hiring manager happy should be your mission. And what exactly makes a hiring manager happy? If he or she finds out through your cover letter that you are exactly what he or she needs, you cannot help but make him or her happy! Read the following cover letter sample as an example of a good one:
