Writing cover letters that target the requirements of the job and demonstrate a healthy understanding of the organization and industry you want to work in will greatly increase your prospects of obtaining an interview. So how do you go about writing cover letters that get your resume read first? Your cover letter creates the first impression of you and can influence the way a potential employer views your application. Writing cover letters that grab the reader's interest and encourage a careful reading of your resume must therefore be considered as important as writing an effective resume.
The key to landing a job interview, and most likely the position, is writing a clear, concise, and attention-grabbing cover letter. A cover letter should make a statement about the applicant, about their qualifications and skills, and about their enthusiasm about their job. It should say everything in as few of a words as possible. This is where generic cover letters fall short, as well. Generic cover letters use basic, rudimentary words which do not keep the reader's attention or invoke any sort of feeling in them. Writing a cover letter is very much like writing a store in that it has to be compelling, and the word choice is extremely important.
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.
