What is a resume cover letter template? A resume cover letter template is a pre-generated cover letter where one only has to ”fill in the blanks”. Resume cover letter templates can be found included in most word processing software (which I will never understand) or by doing a search on the internet. With resume cover letters so readily available, it goes to show that most people use this method when applying for jobs. It is also an assumption that the way to land an interview is by being one of the first applicants for the job. This is not necessarily the case. A hiring manager is looking for the best candidate for the job and is not simply going to choose the first person to come along. They want to find the best applicant. If a resume cover letter does not grab their attention, which is what a resume cover letter achieves, then they are not going to waste time reviewing the applicant further.
One of the key elements to writing a good cover letter is the first sentence. It should be a strong sentence, and grasp the reader's attention, and then should keep building. It is also important to address a good cover letter to the actual individual that is overseeing hiring for that position. This may require a little research, but it will be worth it in the end. Once the first paragraph has the hiring manager's attention, it's all downhill.
Another great tip for an Intern cover letter is performing research on the company. If a cover letter includes information about the company, and the applicant uses that cover letter to share how the company information affects the individual, an employer is going to be impressed. For example, one may write in their cover letter that the company has produced product A, and B for Y amount of years. Then the Intern can relay their experience with the product, and why they want to support a company who makes it. A cover letter which demonstrates personality, and creativity, is more likely to be noticed than one who simply states ”I would like this Intern. I am qualified because…” in so many words. An Intern cover letter also has to show an applicant's attitude, and communication skills. If a cover letter reflects a well thought out structure, and an innovative approach, then the proof of a potential Intern's qualifications are in the pudding!
