Writing a Cover Letter that Will get you Noticed

One of the best ways to reach out to a new potential employer is to write a good covering letter. This will give you the chance to make sure you stand out and get noticed. You will be able to highlight all relevant skills, experience and qualifications to make sure they see you as a viable candidate for the position you want.

Here are some things to remember for your covering letter:

  • Keep it professional. Cover letters can show your passion for a certain job or sector but they still need to sound professional.
  • Use buzzwords. Recruiters will search for certain words to do with the position, so include any that might be relevant to your particular career.
  • Read the instructions. Different organisations will ask for different things in a covering letter. Some will want to know about where you saw the position and why you want it, whereas others will want to know more about your experience.
