Cover Letters must grab the reader's interest so that they immediately want to learn more about the writer (you).

Your cover letter is generally the first document those potential employers will read. So your job is to make sure it introduces you effectively and positively.

The 5 Best ways to make sure your CV or resume does get thrown aside:

  • You don't include a powerful cover letter

  • The same cover letter was photocopied or obviously used for another job

  • The cover letter doesn't include all the information the employer specified

  • The cover letter contains spelling, grammar or typo errors

  • Your skills and qualifications don't match the job description or person specification

    You really want to avoid your CV always ending up in the bin don't you, so when writing your cover letters, be sure to:

  • Customize the cover letter to the particular job you're applying for

  • Emphasize exactly how you expect to contribute to the company or organization

  • Show interest and enthusiasm in the advertised job.

  • Tell them you know about what they do and why you are interested in joining them

  • Illustrate how your skills match the job description

  • Check carefully for spelling errors and typos

  • Address your letter by name to the person advertising (ring for the name if possible)

    Your cover letter will get much better results if you show that:

  • You know what employers want

  • Your strengths have the edge over the competition

  • You tailor your cover letter to meet their specific employer's needs
