What should you include in your cover letter?
When writing your cover letter, you might like to imagine you’re meeting the employer for the first time. You need to introduce yourself professionally, show a genuine interest in their organization and highlight why you’d be a good fit for the role.
One of the best ways to help your cover letter stand out is by making it relevant to the role you’re applying for. Here are some ways you can do that.
Write about specific skills, experience and achievements that demonstrate why you’d thrive in the role.
Highlight aspects of the role, organization and/or industry that interest you.
Show off your knowledge of the organization. You could mention what you admire about them, or how you can help them achieve their goals.
Ultimately, your cover letter needs to be engaging. Being authentic and reflecting who you are as a person gives you the best chance of capturing the employer’s attention.
