The first tip is to avoid being too generic. You do not want to begin your letter with the phrase, "My name is" because the reader will already know that information from your resume. Instead, you should start off with a dynamic opening that provides a short description of who you are. For instance, if you apply for a retail store manager position, you could begin your letter with, "As an assistant manager for $5 Books, I have implemented numerous sales tactics that have increased profits at the store by 20% over the last year."
