There is just one thing that will keep you from writing a respiratory therapist cover letter the “way it should be written” and that is lack of confidence in yourself.
If you suffer from this problem, you may as well say goodbye to your chances of employment until you can drill it into yourself that writing a bad cover letter is not the end of the world. True, a lot depends on writing a good cover letter, but if you fail, there is always next time.
However, it is best to do it the right way in the first go. What can you possibly do to make sure that you end up writing it the right way?
You think. You ponder on what to write. Think hard. If you were to hire someone, what would you look for in them? Integrity? Yes. Thoroughness? Yes. Organization? Yes. Good communication? Yes. Lack of confidence? Nope! You have your answers.
If you are looking for a person who is thorough, possess great workplace ethics and is organized and a good communicator, this is exactly what you have to be yourself!
Wasn’t’ that easy?
