While applying for a job, one usually attaches a cover letter along with the resume. Although the resume has all the contact information and other details about a person’s educational qualifications, other achievements, work experience and so on, a cover letter is a good way to connect to the company on a slightly personal level.
While writing a resume cover letter, these points may be kept in mind:
- Keep the tone formal but at the same time show your enthusiasm for the job
- Do not put too much information in the cover letter, as most of the details will be there in the resume
- Mention certain points which you wish to highlight or feel will contribute towards creating an impression over the employer
- Be courteous and thankful to the employer who has taken out time to read your letter
These tips, along with a good resume, gives you a better chance to get a job.
