If you’re hoping to urge employment interview with a particular company, you’ll increase your odds of that occurring with a well-written cover letter. During this article you’ll realize some quick tips for writing a good resume letter to send to prospective employers, at the side of your resume. Take a look!
- Customize your Resume
If you’re answering an employment ad, the employer may ask for just a resume. But include a cover letter and your resume will be more likely to get noticed. In your letter, in brief justify how your skills match up with what the employer is looking for as indicated in his job posting (the ad you’re responding to). Customize your cover letter like this for every specific job and company you apply for.
- Embrace highlights of your resume
Since you’ll be including your resume along with your cover letter, there’s no need to duplicate the resume. However, in your letter you must signify a couple of key points from your resume, so the employer will be sure to notice them. Highlight your education and/or experience as it relates to the work.
- Keep it brief and point to point
Your cover letter should be one page or less with short paragraphs, so get right to the point. Write merely, clearly, and directly.
- Personalize the letter
Address the letter to the person responsible for hiring. You may need to make a phone call to get this person’s name, but it will be well worth it.
- Consider an email cover letter
Most corporations will indicate whether or not they accept cover letters and resumes via email. Use email only when indicated and send an attachment to the email only if the employer requests one. Otherwise, include everything within the email itself.
- Proof everything before sending
If possible, ask someone to read your cover letter and your resume, for that matter before you send it. At the very least, spell check and proofread the material yourself and make any needed corrected before sending it.
