The answer is simple. They aren't. It is important to move away from using resume cover letter templates and begin using a personalized resume cover letter that makes the hiring manager convinced that one is the right person for the position. It is definitely more work, at least a first, but the process of a personalized cover letter reaps greater benefits. The percentage of positive responses to a personalized cover letter, versus a resume cover letter template, is greater. Thus the amount of resumes a job-seeker has to send out is lessened. This makes the initial work of writing a resume cover letter even out against the traditional job-seeker which uses a resume cover letter template.
The second part of a good cover letter is the paragraph which sells the job-seeker. This should be a carefully worded, concise paragraph that contains aspects of personality and expands on job experience. The point of this paragraph, in a good cover letter, is to let the hiring manager know what the company will reap if they are chosen. The hiring process is tedious for all parties, so the hiring manager wants to ensure the person they take on is the right individual. So in a good cover letter, a hiring manager has to be positive of that. Also, a good cover letter should make a connection with the hiring manager and get them to want to meet an applicant for a job interview in order to find out more.
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.
