Having fun while writing a cover letter shows hiring managers that you can have fun with some of the less pleasant tasks that will be required in the real working world as well and definitely sets you apart from those boring two-dimensional cover letters that are littering the wasteland known as the dead pile of cover letters. If you want a few extra brownie points you might try laughing while writing your cover letter chances are if you find it funny and entertaining so might the hiring manager that has been bored to tears for hours sifting through all the others.
When checking your cover letter example over check to see if it address a specific person. More than likely since you found it on the internet or out of a book it does not. You need to change the generalized addressing around so that it addresses a specific person for the company in which you are applying for a position at. If need be then call the company and get the appropriate name in which you should be addressing your cover letter to. This will speak volumes to the prospective employer and set you apart from the competition.
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.
