What a Cover letter is ? How to write a Impressive Cover Letters

Posted by Saarim on June 23, 2011 at 3:35 PM

  • The first thing is that what a cover letter letter is? 

The cover letter is a brief introduction that accompanies your job application. It's your chance to express your interest in the job and explain why you are the right person to hire.

When the employer hovers over your name and job application, he can see the first paragraph of your cover letter for his particular job, without leaving the list of candidates. Make sure that those first few lines capture his attention and demonstrate your enthusiasm and excellent fit for his job.

Introduce yourself and express interest in the job.Briefly state why you are a good candidate. Focus on your most relevant experience, specific skills and portfolio items.Indicate when you'd be available to discuss the job and to start. Don't include contact info - wait for the employer to request an interview.Include any specific information the employer requested in their job posting. This will show a potential employer that you read the job posting fully and considered it carefully before applying.

Keep the letter to 300 words or less.Use spell-check and ask a friend with good spelling and grammar skills to review it before submitting.Do not use a generic template: If the letter isn't written specifically for the job, the employer will likely ignore you in favor of contractors who took the time to write a customized cover letter for the position.
