Cover Letter Tips for Your Next Job Application

A cover letter is broken down into 3 different areas:

  • Opening
  • Development
  • Conclusion

The Opening – A cover letter is used to express your interest in a company, to identify the specific position and to request an interview. Therefore, the opening paragraph must immediately catch the reader’s attention.

The Development – This section is used to highlight specific aspects of your education and work experience that relate to the position to which you are applying. It can also be used to highlight different aspects of your resume that relate to the position as well.

The Conclusion – The concluding paragraph should request a particular action by the reader. Express your interests in meeting for an interview to discuss further your qualifications and employment potential. Also, include information on how you can be contacted in both the day and the evening.
