Showcase Your Education and Experience in A Dynamic Cover Letter: Grab an Employer’s Attention

Do you know how to write a great cover letter to accompany your resume? Few people do, at least a letter good enough to stand out from the crowd of applicants for the job they want.

Differentiating yourself from your competition means taking extra care in every step of the hiring process. The first contact potential employers have with you is the cover letter that accompanies your resume, and you won’t get a second chance to make a first impression. So don’t bore potential employers with overlong detail. Keep your cover letter short, no more than one page.

Use that one page to say why you are writing, why this employer should be interested in hiring you and what action you plan to take next, such as following up to the cover letter with a phone call a week later.

If possible, include praise for your abilities from other people, perhaps one of your professors, or a former employer.

Make your cover letter personal to each company. Do your research homework: know whats what in the company to which you are applying and how your skills would benefit that firm. Remember that companies love problem-solvers; if you know that what problems a company is facing, you can point out how your skills would help to solve them.
