There are few things more intimidating than a blank page. And when the job hunt is daunting and exhausting enough to begin with, expending the time and energy to create cover letter after cover letter can take a toll. That’s why LiveCareer is here to help. When job seekers need perfectly personalized, recruiter-wowing cover letters, our user-friendly Cover Letter Builder can produce exactly what they need in minutes.
You can relax knowing you’ll be started off with a handful of easy-to-answer questions instead of being thrown right into the design deep end. Providing basic information regarding your industry of choice, work experience, and skills lets the builder start writing your cover letter for you in the background.
Once you start editing the page itself, a menu of instantly swappable cover letter templates will appear on the left side of the screen (and stay there until it’s dismissed), making it easy to narrow down which style best fits with your prospective boss’ preferences while you build the rest of the letter.
Every section of the page, from header to ending salutation, will already be in place as soon as the builder loads. Of course, you can swap or edit any element, but only if you choose to do so. If there’s a section added by default that you feel you don’t need, simply delete it.
From here, constructing the rest of your cover letter can be as easy as filling in a few blanks in the prewritten, pre-personalized text. Depending on the level of customization sought by a job seeker, they can rewrite every word or only tweak several; either option works.
If you’re unsure of the file type in which you’ll be expected to submit this part of your application, you’ll have the option to download your cover letter as a PDF file (the most common type asked for by employers) as well as more editable Microsoft Word or plain text files.
