Stand Out With These Cover Letter Tips

Cover Letter Tips

Cover letters are still essential to a job application and can differentiate you from other candidates.

A cover letter is a marketing document in which to pitch yourself and your relevant experience ultimately highlighting why you are the best candidate for the role.

We have 5 hints to help you to write the best cover letter tailored to each opportunity.

1: Address who you are speaking to:

Your cover letter should always formally address who it is speaking to. This creates a tone of respect throughout your cover letter.

2: Be concise and outline how you can fulfil the job role (use keywords):

A job role will outline the basics of what the position requires. In your cover letter, choose a few of these important requirements and explain how you can fulfil them, linking to examples of your earlier experience. Also, use keywords that the job poster has used.

3: Add personality:

Your cover letter allows you to write in a tone that displays your personality. Use words you usually use and include real-life examples where you can.

4: End with a call to action:

You want to end your cover letter with a call to action. For example, end your cover letter by outlining your interest in the role and your eagerness to speak with someone from the company very soon.

5: Proofread!

The last thing you want is a spelling or grammar mistake in your cover letter. Run your cover letter through an online spell check and have someone proofread to ensure every word and sentence is correct.
