Writing a good cover letter is not a difficult process once one learns how. The difficult part of a good cover letter is not falling prey to cover letter templates or boring sample cover letters. Even though these cover letters are simple to find, and easy to customize (just fill in the blanks!), they are the worst remedy to a stressful situation. ”Okay,” you say, ”but how exactly do I write this good cover letter?” Unfortunately cover letter writing is not a skill that most school systems put an emphasis on. In fact, I am unaware of any institution, other than Universities which offer career centers, which give any sort of education on how to write an effective cover letter. Thankfully there are only a few things to remember when it comes to writing a good cover letter.
Have you met free cover letters and their best friend the trashcan? They go hand in hand. Whenever you see a free cover letter, and you're tempted to borrow it and tweak it to pass it off as your own, you should know that letter is going to probably end up in the trash can. We've all seen the sites online for free cover letters. We know they are out there and if we know it then guess what, employers know also. You may feel like it's the answer to all your prayers, but the truth is, it's really more of a nightmare for you. First take the time to read the letters. They sound really good right? Wrong. While they can provide an excellent guideline for what your cover letter should resemble, they do not contain one ounce of personality. More importantly they do not contain your own personality. Most of these free letters are boring. There is not one ounce of originality in them. Essentially you get what you paid for. You paid nothing for them and they really are nothing.
Using a resume cover letter template is the quickest way for one's resume to end in the trash pile. A resume cover letter template gives the impression that one is a nameless, faceless, and mindless individual who just wants to get a job, any job. This is not a promising characteristic of a potential employee. A company is looking for an individual which has passion and enthusiasm. They also want an employee who is dedicates to the company and wants to see the company excel. How is one going to convey this to a hiring manager when they are just blanks filled into a resume cover letter template?
