Top 10 cover letter tips

by fred 8. September 2010

here are the top tips # 6 to 10

6. Show where the prior skills that are known and the ones that are needed for the job fit. Be certain to expand upon this and get into fairly decent detail.

7. Edit, check the spelling and make sure that the grammar is correct. Allow relatives or friends to read over the cover letter a few times before submitting it.

8. Be formal. Using a more formal style of writing allows objectiveness to be brought to the table and does not cloud a cover letter with self-indulgent words.

9. Acknowledge and become what the employer wants. Make sure to show that what they desire is perfectly obvious and attainable.

10.  Define what strengths are possessed. Make sure to do so without overdoing it. Be honest and clear-cut but do not lie.
 
An extra tip is to explain each break in employment. Don't complain about past employers as that will not make future employers interested in hiring you. Simply explain with a calm mind why it was that the last job did not work out and why there was more than a two week gap between employment.
