Job searching can be a headache, especially for fresh graduates. The most hindering aspect that makes finding the job a hassle is a fact that new graduates have limited experience. Drafting a catchy and straightforward cover letter can serve as the stepping stone to your future job. Besides an appealing note, it is important to be unique and sell yourself as much as possible. Due to limited time, it is advisable to make your letter short and precise while delivering the intended message to the manager or hiring company.
Format of a Cover letter for job applications
There are various forms of cover letters; however, some of the essential components must be reflected.
Recipients address and name
As you write the letter, traditionally it is prudent to start with Dear Sir/Madam or to whom it may concern. As mentioned above try to convince the employer. Mention about your importance to the company, your qualifications and capabilities. Be concise, unique and personal.
Well covered cover letters include areas such as:
What job are you able to do?
Work, experienced, skilled, able
Will you do the job?
Ambitious, interested, willing, capable
Are you going to fit in it?
It depends whether its shape is square, oval or rectangle
