OK I think we all no the important of a cover letter. No? Well you should, its true over half of people that send in a resume for a job don't even bother to send in a covering letter. Good news for you and me because we are going to steal that job from right under their nose. A cover letter is your key to the door, a way to get the attention of your prospective employer and get them to read your resume. So it goes without saying your going to need an award winning cover letter format. The cover letter format you should be going for is one of the standard business type letter. Include three short concise and snappy paragraphs. The first paragraph should explain to the employer who you are and why you are writing to them. If it is a particular job advert you are replying to you should give information about this post if not just give details of posts you are interested in.
1. Introduction _ The introductory paragraph forms the first essential part of a good cover letter format. This opening statement, if used as an application, must clearly explain your purpose for writing the employer. It must explain the reason why you want to apply for the available position. You may also need to include how you came to know of the available post, be it referred or through the classified ads in a newspaper or online. Point out to the recruiter that your competencies meet their requirements. If the intention of your cover letter is to inquire about available positions, then you need to let them know what roles you want to perform.
