• Do not use the passive voice: Using active voice reflects an energetic, vigorous and dynamic personality, avoid using passive voice
• Personalize, but don’t tell your life history: Some candidates misinterpret the meaning of personalization. You have to mention personal traits that suit the job, but this is not a chance to write an autobiography!
• Avoid repetition of words: Using the same word again makes your letter boring. Choose alternative words/ adjectives for your letter
• Don’t go too fancy: Fancy formats should be avoided at all costs. Appear professional
