Almost all employers demand a cover letter with every job application these days. Cover letter is a tool that facilitates both, the employer as well the candidate. It enables the employer to get an insight into the personality, competence and caliber of the candidate while for the candidates it serves as an opportunity to introduce the accompanying resume and candidacy and gain a favorable first impression.
Since first impressions really count in the job market and the first impression is literally the last one when it comes to the HR department, one should take the time and make the effort to write a compelling and convincing cover letter. The tone, format and layout appropriate for each cover letter must be determined carefully and the candidate is the best person to decide upon these. Make sure you select a format that facilitates you in uplifting and highlighting your most desirable traits and skills.
Below is a heavy duty mechanic cover letter sample for your further guidance in this regard.
