The icing on the cake for a good resume is a post script (P.S). This part will sum up the entire cover letter in one or two sentences. There should be another affirmation of the interview request and a pleasant parting phrase. While a post script is not a required part of a good cover letter, just like any good cake, it is something additional which will make it standout from the other cover letters and applicants. It can also be a good idea to use the P.S to inform the hiring manager of any additional papers which are inclosed. For example, many positions request salary requirements or references when a job-seek applies for a job. By using the P.S in your good cover letter to state what is attached, it lets the hiring manager know you followed through with that request, and if any of the papers are lost in the great shuffle, then they know to re-request them.
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.
It is tempting to simply use a standard cover letter, and then adapt it for the Intern position one is applying for. However, this is only going to cause the cover letter to be lost in the mass. One has to go the extra mile in order to secure the Internship they are seeking. One way to do this is by doing research. One should find out the name of the individual whom makes the decision. If a cover letter begins with ”To Mr. Smith”, as oppose to ”Dear Sir/Madam”, then it is going to be remembered from the start. Doing this on one's cover letter is going to demonstrate to the employer that they are a candidate who truly wants the position, and will make a great addition to the team, instead of just a nameless, faceless individual whom is not going to invest themselves in the job.
