There is no way for you to get to the interview stage if your basic job application documents are below par.
This is especially true where cover letters are concerned. Writing a cover letter is not just difficult – it can be downright daunting! But since one has to do it, it is important that you focus your energies on finding out what exactly is it that a hiring manager is looking for in you.
Writing a cover letter is not something that you can do within a minute. You have to be very careful in how you lay out your thought process. Make sure that your best side is highlighted when writing one – a cover letter that speaks volumes about your abilities and qualities is the one that is going to successfully reach out to a hiring manager. No other information is as important.

Dear Mr. White:
As an incredibly creative individual, I am positive that I will be considered an immediate and precious asset of Albertsons, if hired in the role of a Floral Clerk.

Additionally, I am exceptional when it comes to providing suggestions to customers, regarding floral arrangements, and what will work best with which event. Apart from handling the floral arrangement part of the work, I am well-versed in ensuring delivery of exceptional customer services, and can handle cashiering and balancing work like a pro.
