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
The second paragraph is the most important this is where very briefly you are going to sell yourself. You should give details of your skills, achievements and anything else specific to the job you are applying. Remember to stay focussed and keep the letter sharp. It's no good telling how great you are operating a computer if your applying to drive a truck. If you have a lot to add to this paragraph it is expectable to break it down in to two smaller paragraphs, this will help flow and keep the format. The final paragraph or conclusion will let the prospective employer know how you will follow up. Don't just leave it open or expect them to call you. Give a specific time when you will be in touch either by phone or letter. As simple as this sounds, make sure you call when you said you were going to call. It will not look good if you forget. All ready to start a new job or gearing up to take a break? If you have reckoned that you need to move on from your current job then the first step you need to take is to inform your employer that you are parting ways with them. Your resignation letter should be a short letter that formally informs your current employer that you are leaving your job. You may have to serve a notice period of a month or two after submitting your resignation letter.
