The cover letter should showcase your personality, professionalism and of course your skills relevant to the position you are seeking. In addition, you should make sure that the tone and how you write the cover letter to a person offering yourself as a “solution” to their needs as outlined in their job description.
For example, I will do this________(something they are looking for in the job description) and here is how________(your skill or an example of you have successfully done it in the past).
- Make sure you quantify your skills, abilities and achievements by using percentages, numbers or dollars.
- Use bullet points. It is easier to read and highlights important and unique things about you to help you stand out.
- Don’t copy and paste the same points right out of your resume.
- Spell check and proofread your own Cover Letter and then have someone else read it over. Our mind often sees what it wants to see and knows what you want to say, therefore you risk overlooking missed words or incorrect spellings and uses of words if you don’t have someone else read it over for you.
Make sure you sum up your Cover Letter with a “Call-To-Action.” This is a rule in the marketing world, and you are marketing yourself here. In this case, you have to tell the hiring manager why they need to read your resume and call you in for an interview. You could say something like, “I look forward to setting up an interview with you. Here is the best phone number to contact me at.”
