At times, even the most seasoned of writers have trouble writing a cover letter.
The problem isn’t the fact that they aren’t good writers. The problem is that writing a cover letter means emotionally detaching yourself from your writing. This is difficult to do. Why is a cover letter emotionally detached? Probably because it is highly factual.
Cover letters run on facts and figures.
You cannot expect to write a cover letter well if you try to put “feel” into it. Of course, some “feel” is important, but it has to be the right kind.
When you write a motorcycle mechanic cover letter, your focus should be impressing the reader with your qualifications and experience. All these are facts.
Gone are the days when you could get away with writing a cover letter that was straightforward and well, boring!
Boring doesn’t work anymore. You need to be able to amuse the reader with what you have written. Boring goes right into the dustbin!
Omit the emotional drama that some people insist on placing in their cover letters – instead, bring in professional humor if you have to. Never let your cover letter look mundane.
Here is a cover letter sample that is direct, to the point, concise and not boring:
