Best 7 Ways to Improve Your Cover Letter

Cover Letter

A cover letter is a letter for application which lets you show your professional side and demonstration why hiring you is a good decision. It is an introduction of yourself to the employer and an encouraging medium to read your resume.  It also provides additional information about your skills and experience with detail information.

A well-presented cover letter should have the following aspects that will help you to improve your cover letter and here are 7 ways to improve your cover letter.

  1. Address to the right person

While writing a cover letter, always make sure to find the right name of the person to whom you intend to send the application.  Addressing the name of the right person in the cover letter will make you stand out.

  1. Keep it short and simple

Adding irrelevant information in your cover letter is a big ‘No’. Make it short about 2-3 paragraphs that explain your skills, experience and personal traits how you match for the job. Try keeping your cover letter not more than one page.

  1. Include Achievements

You can choose your top achievements and can outline in your cover letter in bullet form if they are relevant to the job you are applying for.

Give real-life examples of your achievements and don’t lie in your cover letter.

  1. Create a job tailored cover letter

Targeting the Job application with a proper cover may sound tedious. But it is very important to customise your cover letter to target the job and get an interview. Instead of sending the same basic cover letter for every job application make sure to customise your cover letter before sending.

  1. Mention what you can offer the employer

Include the key terms and phrases in your cover letter that stands out of the rest showing you are a professional candidate. Include those few skills in your cover letter that best qualify for the job and how you will prove to be the right fit for the job.

  1. Proof Read; Check for any grammatical mistakes

It is less likely for a recruiter to go further with your job application if you have inconsistencies and have spelling/grammatical errors. Proofread your cover letter multiple times before sending or uploading your document.

  1. Show your enthusiasm and energy

The end of your cover letter should end with positive sentences such as thanking the employer for considering your job application or even mentioning that you are hopeful to meet your potential employer for the job role and how you would make a good employee.
