The second step is putting that content into your letter. Start with an opening paragraph that includes a reference to the position you want and specific qualities pertinent to the position, such as analytic thinking skills and leadership experience. If you have great examples from previous work positions that you didn't include in the resume, put them in the next couple of paragraphs. Boost the impact of these examples with the positive impact of your actions or what you learned from the experiences. You could also include as paragraph about your interest in the company.
Some of the best skills to consider include your familiarity with change management processes, your ability to motivate others, your understanding of positive communication principles, and your grasp of problem-solving skills. One thing you don't need to focus on is your education. This information appears in your resume and is redundant in your cover letter.
