One of the major mistakes that we make when writing a cover letter is generalizing the content.
Since you are writing your letter for a “particular” job to a “specific” person, it just does not make any sense to write an all-purpose cover letter.
Remember that the point of writing a cover letter is to highlight valuable information regarding your capabilities and your ability to contribute to the company – in a specific role. It is essential to customize your cover letter for every job that you apply for.
When you write your cover letter to impress the employer, that is the only time that it will be considered successful. But to be able to convince the person reading your cover letter that you are a good match, you have to make a little extra effort.
Delivering information that is conducive to the needs of a prospective employer is imperative here. You will need to do some research to find out what it is that the company is looking for, and then create a professional looking cover letter accordingly.
A considerable part of the cover letter should be able to portray that you meet at least 80% of the requirements of the company.
And here is a sample to help you along:
