For you to be able to make an effective cover letter, you should be able to follow at least the basic format which should never fail to address three general issues: 1. First Paragraph _ The reason why you are writing. 2. Middle Paragraphs _ Facts about what you have to offer. 3. Concluding Paragraph _ Methods for you to follow_up
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.
