Never written a cover letter before huh? Or maybe you just haven’t written one in forever. Below are some tips to help you write a great cover letter!
1. Don’t be too detailed – People tend to do too much in their cover letter. They sometimes exaggerate or reiterate the same thing over and over again. You don’t need to do this! Just get to the point.
2. Be yourself – As you read in step 1, people tend to exaggerate and make things up. Don’t be one of these people! It’s important to be genuine when you apply for a new job, it gives the employer more confidence in your skills and can help build trust.
3. Give examples of your work and skills – Employers like to hear specific examples of how you used your skills efficiently and any other type of performance related milestones. Your resume gives an overview of your responsibilities but the cover letter mentions specifics!
