QUESTIONS?
18
WRITING A COVER LETTER
  • First paragraph State the name of the job for
    which you are applying and how you learned about
    the job opening.
  • Second paragraph Emphasize skills and abilities
    that relate to the open position. However, do
    not repeat what is said on your resume.
  • Third paragraph Thank the employer and request
    an interview.

19
A cover letter is an essential part of an
application
  • A cover letter is your opportunity to humanize
    the application process and let the screener
    learn more about you as a person. It is a
    change to show your enthusiasm, energy and
    interest in the company and the position itself.

20
  • Structurally, try to assess the letter to the
    screener by name, and keep it clear, concise and
    never more than one page. The letter should no
    be a summary of your resume. Rather it should
    tantalize.
  • Show the reader you have done your homework about
    the company, and use language that links your
    skills and experience to the job itself. If
    there is relevant information that is not
    mentioned in your résumé, such as an impending
    move to the city where the company is located, be
    sure to include that in your cover letter.

21
topics to avoid in the cover letter
  • Salary
  • Problems on previous jobs
  • Expressions that have the ring of a cliché.
  • The final touch is to check the spelling and
    grammar carefully.
