You are often at a loss when you write your first cover letter. Expect to be. It is okay to be a little confused when you are writing your first ever cover letter. The fact that you “expect” to feel this way will save you from writing a cover letter that won’t sit down too well with the person reading it.
Just like standard letter writing, a cover letter is based on the introduction, main body and conclusion format. The introduction paragraph is all about the employer – discuss where you heard about the job opportunity, what you know about the company and why you are writing the letter. The main body is about you – describe who you are professionally, what your specific skills are and how you intend to use them. The conclusion needs to be action-oriented – don’t wait for the employer to call you. Instead, give him or her the impression that you will call and set up an interview date and time.
That about sums up a cover letter for first time writers. Technically, it is these 3 paragraphs that need to be gratified. Pay special attention to the content and style of your writing. Be professional without being boring. Here is how you can do this:
