Writing a memorable cover letter can take some time, but a well-written letter can make a huge difference.
Prove your worth: Add value to the company and present yourself as an asset to their organization, as opposed to just listing qualifications.
Captivate your reader: Start your letter with a hook, something that adds a value proposition that will make the employer want to interview you. Try combining several accomplishments into one powerful sentence: “For the past three years, I have led a successful sales team while remaining in the top 3% in overall sales.”
Showcase your network: If you were referred to this position by someone who already works at the company, remember to list this connection in your cover letter. Employers and recruiters are always looking for personal references, but make sure you check with your friend or acquaintance before listing them.
Thank your readers for their consideration: If your cover letter is being read, you’re being considered for the position. Show respect by thanking your readers for their consideration.
