Cover Letter Writing Tips

1. First and the most important thing is to make sure your cover letter is error free. The letter should not have any grammatical mistakes, any misspelled words or typographical mistakes. Whenever any recruiter scans through your CV and cover letter, they makes sure that the page is free from errors. Some employers will just trash your application at the instant they find a mistake as it shows that you do not pay particular attention to detail.

2. The second important thing that people tend to forget is that cover letter is not written only to highlight your skills. The letter is also written to seek the attention of the employer. You must keep the letter brief and precise. A recruiter receives many CVs to review, and will appreciate the short and nicely written cover letter that can help explain the intent of the applicant.

3. Another important factor is the reason why the letter is being written. This letter should explain why you are the best choice for the job. You should carry out some research into the company and the post for which are applying. State the reasons that why a recruiter should select you. Explain the skills you posses and how that match the needs of the employer.

4. Cover letters should communicate your skills and the employer should believe your letter, so be honest.
