Cover Letters

Your cover letter is often your very first opportunity to introduce yourself to a potential employer. Not only should it express your interest in the company and the role for which you are applying, but it should highlight the most important qualifications as mentioned in the job description. Cover letters should be concise yet thorough, as you want to keep the hiring manager’s interest while still highlighting why you would be the best fit for that role.

The best way to start your cover letter is to review the job description, especially since every cover letter should be unique to the job you’re applying for. This can help you create an outline to follow for crafting your cover letter. Every qualification that was important enough to include in the job description should show up in your cover letter. For example, if a job description mentions a necessity for strong customer service skills, you should be sure to include something relating to your specific experience in customer service.
