You may have the most attractive of personalities on the planet but if you don’t showcase it nicely in a cover letter, it is a lost cause! Bringing personality to your job application is one of the primary jobs of a cover letter. Well-written cover letters suggest that you are open to new ideas, are results-driven, and if you are the people person that an employer is looking for. For most employers, employee turnover is a big headache – and to make sure that they do not have to deal with it on a constant basis, they like hiring people with “personality”.
A cover letter is like a personality test – hiring managers judge you for not only your skills and knowledge, but how well your personal attributes let you fit into their company. Demonstrating that you are indeed a perfect match for the hiring manager’s requirements is the essence of a cover letter – everything else is secondary. Communication skills are also judged quite harshly through a cover letter which is all the more reason for you to write a cover letter that “talks” to the employer.
Action closes are what will hit the last nail in the coffin – in a manner of positivity. Here is how to do this:
