First, address the cover letter to the name of the hiring manager or a company executive who oversees the department with the job opening. Do not use a generic title such as "Administrator." Express your interest and enthusiasm for the job in the opening paragraph, including why you are a great candidate. Briefly share any information about personal connections you have with the company.
While you should not repeat the information from the resume, you could expand on one of the accomplishments, particularly if your experience can be useful as the company faces current challenges. Quantify the impact of your actions whenever possible.
Keep the cover letter to one page. The formatting should complement the resume. Proofread the letter to ensure that it is error-free. Include your contact information and the best times and methods for reaching you. Be sure to thank the reader for his or her time and consideration.
