Your Cover Letter

Creating the perfect cover letter does not have to be difficult. Cover letters are generally short and to the point. You should address your cover to someone in particular. You should never address your cover letter with “To whom it may Concern” or “Dear Sir/Madame” it is unprofessional and doesn’t show a genuine interest in the company or the job.

The cover letter is the sole purpose for looking at the resume. If it is written badly, the resume might not get a once over. In most cases, the resume is just as important as the resume, so I have briefly written the right formation of one.

The cover letter should begin with a basic greeting and the position that you are applying for. It should be no more than 2 lines long. The second paragraph should be a brief description of your qualifications and why you applied to work for them. The closing should announce an interest in hearing from them soon, and a thank you for their time. Here is a sample of a successful cover letter.

In regards to: The clerical position that is available.
Mr. Brown
3232 Jackson St.
Jackson City, FA
Attention: Mr. Joe Brown

Dear Mr. Brown,

This letter is in regards to the clerical position that is recently available in your company. As my enclosed resume will show you, I have three years experience as a clerk.

During my career, I have successfully integrated a new filing system for my previous employer, Wayne Law Firm that increased their productivity by 33%. That filing system is still in use there now, and has been integrated into two other companies.

I thank you for your time in reading this letter. I hope to hear from you once you have had time to read my resume.
