Yes, you really do need a cover letter?

Why, you ask?

Well, you need a cover letter mainly because it is an extension of your resume and it will inform a potential employer of additional information regarding your experience, skills and educational background so that he/she will be able to further determine if you are the best candidate for a specific position.

Today, needless to say, there is a lot of competition within the job market, which makes standing out as an employee much harder than it has been in the past. If you are serious about obtaining a position, you need to write an amazing cover letter in order to increase your chances of obtaining an interview. It is not as easy today to land an interview like it has been in recent years, so therefore you need to write a cover letter that will grab the attention of the employer.

So, how can you write an effective cover letter?

If you want your cover letter to grab the attention of an employer, the main thing that you want to make sure you do is use some of the company’s information to thoroughly explain how you will contribute to the company since employers are looking for professionals who have a goal of continuing the success of the company.

10 Cover Letter Writing Tips

  1. Address the letter to an individual
  2. Tailor the letter to a specific job
  3. Add company information in the letter
  4. Keep the letter 1 Page
  5. Explain how you will contribute to the company
  6. Provide additional relevant information
  7. Write with enthusiasm
  8. Acknowledge the job requirements
  9. Delete negative information about former bosses and/or coworkers
  10. Proofread your document several times
