Have you ever assumed yourself on the employer’s side of the hiring table and held a cover letter of a prospective employee in your hand? What did you look for in a candidate? Apply that to yourself!
What would an employer look for in you when he reads your letter?
The first thing that he will determine will be your writing skills.
What if you do not have any experience?
Your writing skills will still be gauged when an employer looks through your cover letter.
If you have just got training as a physical therapy aide, the first job that you apply for will be of great importance to you.
You will need to be articulate about what your training taught you and how you intend to use it to help your patients. Remember that your knowledge of a position is your biggest asset since you lack experience. Use it to make a positive impression.
Talking about your skills and how you think you can use them to the prospective facility’s benefit will give the recruiter something to think about.
Write positively and be very specific about what you are looking for in a position.
