How often have you been given the wrong cover letter advice, resulting in few or no calls for interview? If this has happened even once, it has happened too many times! You need to be very careful when taking advice for something as sensitive as cover letter writing. On the face of it, it may not seem like cover letter writing is anything much. However, a cover letter is a potent document that can lead to successful careers. Writing one is serious business.
Most pieces of advice that you find on internet will probably be misleading. Easily available samples are a big fat NO if you want to make any kind of positive impression on the person who will be reviewing your candidature. Write your own. Think about cover letter writing seriously. What would you want to read if you were in the employer’s position? How would you gauge a candidate’s skills from a cover letter? Put yourself in the employer’s shoes and see how you can win his favors.
As far as actual content and format goes, stick to original, professional and relevant. You cannot possibly lose out if you play your cards right.

Mr. Steve Irwin
Sundt Construction, Inc.

Dear Mr. Irwin:
My latest project – re-laying the piping system in the old Terros Mansion, due to be converted into a 5 star hotel – has earned me the reputation of a “magician of pipes.” As an expert pipe welder, with over 12 years of experience under my belt, I am positive that hiring my services at Sundt Construction, Inc. will be a good decision.
Welding pipes with consistent quality and by following safe work practices is my specialty. With a great ability to identify different types and preparation of materials used in pipe welding activities, along with an exceptional ability to ensure that all quality assurance processes are followed, my work is always meticulous and on time. The fact that I am well-versed in measuring routings of pipes and fabricating them to fit existing in-line piping systems, makes me a great choice to assign both new piping and renovation projects.
I will call you at the end of next week to determine if you have a free slot when we can meet and discuss this opportunity more openly. Until then, please call me at (000) 965-6222 if you need to reach me.
