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!
Take the time to sit and write a good your own cover letter. While a cover letter needs to contain a lot of information in a small amount of space, it's not too hard to write if you keep it one thing in mind: If you were the employer, what would make you hire yourself? There is no way a free cover letter sample could answer that question. While they may seem like a quick and easy fix to the dilemma of writing a cover letter, in the long run it's not worth the damage it can do to your job hunt. You can see now why a free sample cover letter and the trashcan are best friends.
Believe it or not you do not need to prick your fingertips with blood and use it as ink in order to write an impressive cover letter that will complement your resume quite nicely. In fact, if you are willing to look at the cover letter writing process in a rather unconventional light you just might find that the process can be almost fun in a challenging sort of way. Most people fail from the start when it comes to writing a cover letter because they somehow miss the point of writing one all together. A good cover letter is not a summary of the resume at all. In fact, a good cover letter merely invites the hiring manger to read the resume rather than rehashing the bland details that are more often than not contained in the resume. Your cover letter should be anything but bland if you are hoping for results. Hiring managers sift through dozens if not hundreds of bland cover letters on a daily basis. If you want to create a resume that will stand out you need to create one that is fun to read. The best way to do that is to have some degree of fun while writing it. Yes, you did read that correctly, I said have fun with your cover letter.
The second part of a good cover letter is the paragraph which sells the job-seeker. This should be a carefully worded, concise paragraph that contains aspects of personality and expands on job experience. The point of this paragraph, in a good cover letter, is to let the hiring manager know what the company will reap if they are chosen. The hiring process is tedious for all parties, so the hiring manager wants to ensure the person they take on is the right individual. So in a good cover letter, a hiring manager has to be positive of that. Also, a good cover letter should make a connection with the hiring manager and get them to want to meet an applicant for a job interview in order to find out more.
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.
Most of the free cover letters you will find out there are very generic. Their introductions can sometimes include the 5 most fatal words a cover letter can contain ”To Whom it May Concern”. Those words alone will earn any cover letter a trip to the trashcan. A good cover needs to be addressed to a specific person. The first paragraph is always customized for that company you are applying to. A free cover letter is never going to show that you understand the business needs of the company. A free cover letter is never going to be able to introduce you and why you want to work for the company. Only you can do that.
Another cover letter template misconception that job seeker have is that when they do create a truly great, fresh and unique cover letter for an prospective employer, they then use that same cover letter for all prospective employers. This first cover letter should only be a template to use to create other fresh and unique cover letters for additional prospective employers.
