A cover letter allows you to personalize your resume when it is mailed to prospective employers in response to ads or to inquire about possible interviews. Your cover letter should motivate the reviewer to read your resume and invite you for an interview. It should provide an excellent first impression of you and your ability to communicate. The tone should be warm and conversational, as well as professional. Convey enthusiasm for the company.
Cover letter contents:
The 1st paragraph should arouse the reader’s interest. It should contain not more than four sentences. State:
Make it clear to the employer what exactly is it about the job that attracts you. It is better to try and pick out one aspect of the job that particularly appeals to you and explain why.
Body of the letter:
The 2nd paragraph should make the employer desire to interview you by explaining what you can do for his company. Put yourself in the employer’s position and state:
For fresher’s or people with no relevant work experience, relate your accomplishments, internships, research, and projects to the qualities the company is looking for. You can use examples to bring in additional skills that may not be directly relevant. Use interesting examples that cast you in a separate light to others applying for the position.
The last paragraph should request action. In all circumstances be courteous but use a direct approach.
Indicate your willingness to answer further questions.
Every cover letter SHOULD be different for every company you apply to.
In order to post replies to the question: "How do I write a cover letter that works?"
