Enthusiasm sells. If you want to show a prospective employer that you want to work for them, being enthusiastic in a cover letter is all that you need to do. The rest will fall into place itself. Show hiring managers that you have researched the position and the organization, so that they know that they are dealing with a professional. Be courteous but let your personality show.
Nothing looks worse than a generic cover letter for warehouse material handler resume. If you do not create a warehouse material handler cover letter that highlights your skills set and credentials consistent with the job advertisement, you are making a big mistake – an unforgivable one. You might argue how a hiring manager will know that you have sent the same cover letter to a dozen other places. Generic cover letters are tell-tales. It is obvious from them that the candidate has made one general sounding cover letter and sent it off to many places.
Even if you customize the employer’s information on each generic cover letter that you send out, the tone of the letter will make it obvious that it is not a targeted one. These may seem like small things but they make a huge difference. Always, always write a letter that is specific to the position that you are applying for.
