The importance of a good cover letter cannot be over stated enough, use The Resume Hacks to solve that problem.

3 Areas to address in your Cover Letter

1. Who are you?

Keep in mind, they don’t really care that you like taking long walks on the beach.  This is where you sell your successes relevant to the position you are applying for. (Use the impressive key words from the list below if you get stuck.

2. Why are you the best candidate?

Your resume addressed your work experience.  Now, you have to explain how your experiences makes you a worthy candidate and what skills you bring to the organisation.  Take the “what’s in it for you” approach.

You are an asset, position yourself in your Cover Letter and Interview as such.

When you work for a company you also get remunerated for the very skills that you posses, making you an asset.  It is of cardinal importance to do your research well.

Stick to the point, just share 2 or 3 of your most impressive attributes.  There will be a lot of applicants, the human resources department will need to sort through them all, do not bore them

3. Ask for the interview

This is mostly the part that freaks me out a bit. I don’t naturally like to ask for things.  I this case phrasing the “ask” well, will make it feel less cheesy.  You are more likely to get an interview if you ask for it in the Cover Letter.

My go-to line in these circumstances is:

“I welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how I can contribute…”

Confidence and Enthusiasm is key use it wisely.

Important:  Leave your contact details and mention any attachments

Key tips:

  • Your Cover Letter should compliment not duplicate your resume
  • Keep it short, 3-4 paragraphs with 3-4 sentences each
  • Send as PDF
  • Make sure your opening is strong (keeps them reading) and closing (memorable) is powerful and stands out.
  • Showcase research you have done on the organisation,  a sincere compliment grabs attention.  “I would like to be part your organisation because…”
  • Let your personality shine through by keeping it conversational.
  • You can Google Cover Letter templates and customise them to serve your needs.

Take your time and really put some thought in your Resume and Cover Letter, use The Best Resume Hacks to guide you.  This is the first opportunity for you to set yourself apart from the rest and this is mostly a make or break opportunity.
