The majority of the recruiters and employers agree that a Cover Letter should be maximum one page, arguing that “the shorter, the better.” To increase your chances of getting your dream job, make sure to research the company and the person you are addressing the Cover Letter to and personalize it according to their needs and profile.
Appearances matter! A business letter is a professional piece of correspondence, but it wont be perceived that way if you opt for a wacky font or have lots of typos. Choose an appropriate font and font size. Avoid casual language or slang. Prevent typos and grammatical errors by proofreading carefully. If you are printing out the letter, consider choosing high-quality paper. Whatever paper you choose, fold the letter carefully before placing it in the envelope. If you can, type the recipient address on the envelope; if thats not possible, use your neatest handwriting.
The importance of a well-crafted cover letter cannot be emphasized enough. Cover letters allow you to tell a story about where you’ve been in the professional sphere, where you hope to go, and more specifically, why you’re applying for the job at hand. The best ones showcase a jobseeker’s personality, skills, and accomplishments, and breathe life and additional value into the accompanying resume (without being a repeat of what appears on the resume).
