Cover letters do not have to be just text – you can include graphs and charts as well to tell an employer about your accomplishments. While hiring managers do not generally like a lot of “flowers” in the cover letters, a graph or two will actually add a wow factor. You can also insert bullet points to depict how well your qualifications match the employer’s requirements. Plain text can sometimes become boring because the employer has seen it a million times and might not be able to digest yet one more “black on white”.
But there are some positions for which a cover letter has to be “black on white”. And if you want to get through to a prospective employer successfully, you have to do what the employer is looking for specifically in a cover letter. Mostly, a cover letter for ice cream maker position is all about skills and accomplishments. If you can successfully outline these, you have a great chance at convincing the employer to grant you an interview. And an interview is what your aim is so make sure that your cover letter surpasses all expectations where content and layout is concerned. Most of the times, an advertisement will not provide you specific information about how to format your cover letter, unless the employer knows that all cover letters will go through an ATS – in such a case, he might specify that you write in plain text or set margins in a certain way.
