If you haven’t written a cover letter perfectly, you have done nothing worth a hiring manager’s time. Choose your words wisely when writing a cover letter – they depict who you are and what you can do. But to write a cover letter that hits home with a prospective employer, you need to understand what he or she wants. Create a table first – write all the things that the company is looking for in an individual on one side and put all the things that you are capable of on the other side. Match your qualifications with the employer’s requirements. See how much you qualify.
This exercise will give you a huge edge over the competition, as you will self-assess your abilities before you present them to the employer. If you know what he or she is looking for, it is easy to provide them with it. Simple? For sure! This method can also become part of your cover letter where you can draw a striking comparison of your abilities and the employer’s requirements.
If you have ever been awarded for your contribution to the company, do not be shy in mentioning it. Your accomplishments will keep your claims of being the “perfect candidate” from being hollow. To see how you can write a cover letter that brings results, refer to the one below:
