Cover Letters – The Purpose and How to

When applying for a job, candidates are expected to have a cover letter “tailored” to the type of Job been applied for so as to let the employer know that not only you been qualified for that job but making the employer having a vivid picture (or video) of the candidate’s character, ability and motive(s) for seeking a Job in this field of institution.

I once had this believe that once you have an well ‘tailored’, ‘qualified’ and (in the words of my good friend Justin) an ‘awesome’ C.V, you will have a good chance of getting the Job but I have come to realize that first impression matters. Here, your 1st impression of you to the employer is your ‘Cover Letter’, 

The purpose of a cover letter

 A cover letter needs to:

  • Introduce you
  • mention the job (or kind of job) you’re applying for (or looking for)
  • match your skills and experiences with the skills and experiences required by the job.
  • encourage the reader to read your resume
  • finish with a call to action (for example, requesting an interview or asking to meet).
