Tips For Resume Cover Letters – Because First Impressions Count

Resume cover letters can be just as important to your total job application package as your resume. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of either not including a covering letter with their resume at all or they do not give enough thought and consideration to creating their resume cover letters.

First, remember that you should always include a brief letter with your resume. Even if the employer has not specifically requested one, you should always include one. This is because the cover letter serves a very important purpose and can provide you with an important advantage. One of the most important purposes for submitting a cover letter with the resume is to let the employer know that you have not randomly selected their company but that you are applying for a specific job. The covering letter also gives you an opportunity to let your personality shine through and to provide further documentation that you are the right person for the job.

When you write a resume cover letter, there are several tips that you should keep in mind in order to make a great first impression. First, always make sure that you have reviewed the cover letter before mailing it to ensure that there are no spelling or grammar mistakes present. One of the worst things that you can do is send in a cover letter with typos, spelling errors or grammar mistakes.

In addition, you should always make sure that you greet the person to whom you are addressing the cover letter correctly. Never make the mistake of addressing the cover letter as ‘to whom it may concern’ or ‘dear sir or madam.’ Either of these salutations is a dead giveaway that you have not taken the time to do your research and most employers are looking for someone who will take initiative. So, help yourself stand out from the crowd by making sure that you take the time to research how you should address the cover letter.

Remember that you should also include where you learned about the job opening for which you are applying. If someone referred you to the job, this is a great opportunity to mention it. Even if you only read about the job opening in the classifieds, make sure that you mention it.

Keep in mind that resume cover letters are the first chance that employers will have to get to know you. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you do your best to make the best impression possible.
