We're almost to the end now. A good cover letter is going to contain a request for an interview. This is something that most cover letters leave our. Asking for an interview, coupled with effective writing, make the perfect combination of a good cover letter. Be sure that all contact information is easy to locate on the cover letter, and specify what is the best method of contact. Also, another aspect to a good cover letter is a statement of follow-up. Let the hiring manager know to expect a call, e-mail, or letter touching base with them again. This is a good way to show enthusiasm and motivation.
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.
A cover letter is as easy to come by as going to ”Google”, or some other search engine, and typing in ”sample cover letter”. There are thousands upon thousands of options out there ready to have information plugged into the appropriate spots and sent out. However, a cover letter like this is generic. The definition of generic is: characteristic of or relating to a class or group of things; not specific. Not specific indeed, that doesn't tell us much. Let's look at a couple synonyms– general, common, nonspecific, no-name. Those aren't very flattering words are they? That is exactly the type of impression a generic cover letter gives. It is a big flashing neon sign that the applicant is generic. It also says to the hiring manager that if the applicant cannot manage to do the work needed to create a personalized cover letter, perhaps they are not committed to doing any work whatsoever.
