Points to Keep in Mind when Writing your Resume Cover Letter

Resume and Cover Letters are the first impression of you to the interviewer and the company. Your resume will be on the desk even before you are called in for the interview. So, the possibility of you getting the job depends on a good cover letter also. There are some cases where candidates are shortlisted based on resume and cover letters. That been said, let us focus on the major points that have to be covered while writing your resume cover letter.

Make Your Own Impressive Cover Letter

You should write the cover letter focusing on the areas the organization is expecting from the candidates. You should do some research and work on the skills and experience that you have that will be useful for the respective job and mention them in the cover letter.

Genuinity – Show Your Interest

Genuine Interest comes with a detailed study of the organization and their works. You can say how well your educational qualifications meet the standards and the current requirements of the organization. You could also mention the things that you found interesting in the organization that you didn’t among the others in the same domain.

Originality – Show Your Creativity

A common mistake that many people make while writing cover letters is false flattery. You should be yourself, mention your skills and achievements and mention how the company and the job is perfect for you. The best way to do this is to write it down without taking any reference from other resumes and cover letters.

Optimistic – Sell Yourself Professionally

The information that you mention in the cover letter should be presented in such a way that the recruiters feel that you are the right person for the job. Mention about how you would like to meet the deadlines, finish the task on time, you are ready to work anytime in case of emergencies, how you will enjoy the job, etc.

Real Name of the Person who will read Your Letter

The usual norm that is followed in most of the organizations currently is addressing by name. Most of the organizations avoid the words Sir/ Ma’am to refer to the people in the same organization. The same is applied to the letters also. This is the excepted norm now also because the person reads his/ her name first and gets to know that the email/ letter is assigned to him.
