Like any letter, your cover letter should start off with a formal greeting. Address the letter as specifically as possible by listing the name of the hiring manager or employer if you can find it. You should then use your first paragraph to state why you are applying for the open position in either one or two sentences.
After the introduction, you can include either one or two additional paragraphs. In these paragraphs, expound on the information you included in your resume by talking about how you are the best fit for the open position based on your skills, experiences, and abilities.
You should finish off your cover letter by stating the best way to contact you and that you appreciate any time the employer spends reviewing your credentials. Then, add your name at the bottom of the letter with a formal signoff.
