What is a cover letter?

A cover letter is a one-page document that you submit with your resume to express your interest in a job opening. The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce yourself to an employer and provide a brief overview of your work history, professional skills, and an explanation why you’re the best fit for that job.

While your resume focuses on your qualifications and achievements, your cover letter expands on those achievements, showcases your personality, and explains why you’d be a good fit for the company.

How to write a cover letter that gets you the job

Here’s how to make a great cover letter for a job application:

  • First and last name
  • Email address (something professional, usually including your name)

  • Mailing address (optional)
  • Linkedin profile link (optional)
  • Portfolio or website (optional)

After your header, include the date and following company contact information:

  • First and last name of the person you’re writing to, or the relevant department
  • Company address
  • Company phone number
  • Hiring manager’s email address

 

2. Address the hiring manager (ideally by their name)

Next, address your cover letter to the hiring manager by name if possible. A standard cover letter salutation includes the hiring manager’s first and last name, and begins with a “Mr.”, “Ms.”, or another relevant professional title.

3. Write an attention-getting opening paragraph

Start your cover letter with an informative, direct introduction by including the following details in the first one or two sentences:

  1. Job position: The title of the advertised position
  2. Company name: The name of the company you’re applying to
  3. How you discovered the opening: Whether you saw the job on LinkedIn, a job board, or were recommended to apply by a friend
  4. Intention to apply: An enthusiastic announcement that you’re applying for the open role and why you’re interested in or qualified for it
  5. Notable accomplishments: If you have relevant work experience, highlight one or two of your most notable achievements in your introduction to immediately grab the employer’s attention
