  • Good Cover Letter Writing

    A good cover letter writing is very important. A cover letter is a short introduction letter that accompanies your resume. The cover letter should persuade the employer to read your resume.If you are mailing your resume, it is very crucial to make sure to include your cover letter.

    Tips for good cover letter writing:

    • List your name, complete address, and telephone number with area code at the top of the page.
    • Address the cover letter to a specific person. Include the employer contact information: name, address, telephone, and e-mail address.
    • First paragraph: Begin with an introduction paragraph to explain how you learned about the job or the company. (Job fair, newspaper, friend.) Name the specific position that you are applying for.
    • Second paragraph: Briefly write up your skills to aim toward the open position and explain what you can bring to the job. Do not simply repeat the information in your resume. Be creative when explaining why you are the best job match. The goal of the cover letter is to encourage the employer to read your resume.
    • Third paragraph: Explain the next action you will take. For example: I will telephone in one week to follow up on this position. Be sure to thank the employer for their time, stating that you look forward to interviewing with them.
    • Close and sign your letter. For example:

    Respectfully,

    Your handwritten signature

    Type your name
