Remember, cover letters don’t have to follow a specific formula. In fact, it might help you stand out from the crowd if your letter has a little extra energy and personality. If you get bored writing them, a hiring manager’s bound to get bored reading them, right?
You need to write a cover letter to stand a chance of getting your next job. But it doesn’t have to be painful. Using help from the Daily Muse’s post, your cover letter can help you bring out the best in you. If you love yourself, show it! As a tip, write about your best talents and best skills (related to the job, of course). After you’re done, look over it. This time, change anything that may have been in the third person (Jose is a fantastic worker…you get the picture). In a matter of minutes, you could have a perfectly readable resume.
You want to beat egg whites until stiff. Don’t beat (needlessly re-write) your cover letter until it becomes stiff, too. As long as:
- You looked it over for spelling and grammar errors
- Had someone else look it over to catch what you miss
You’re all set. Good luck!
