What Is A Cover Letter?. What Information Is Needed On That Document
A cover letter is a very crucial and most important document that shows and demonstrate your experience. It shows how fit is you for the position you are applying for.
How to Write a Cover Letter
Start with a header. It is very important when drafting a professional cover letter for a job application. It should include the following information:
- Your name
- Your phone number
- Your email address
- The date
- The name of the hiring manager and their professional title
- The name and address of the company to which you’re applying
There is other information that can be added but optionally, such as:
- Your professional title
- Your home address
- Links to your professional websites
- Your social media accounts applicable only for LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp
- Your city of residence. It is not mandatory but adds a professional touch include it if your cover letter is highly official.
Just remember to keep it professional:
- Use an email address from a respected provider—that means either Gmail or your personal domain (if you have one.)
- Your email address should only include your first and last name—email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org will be deal-breakers.
- Don’t use your current work email. It’s impolite to both your current and potential future employer.
- Make sure your contact information is consistent across your resume, cover letter, and social media profiles.
Nowadays companies or recruiters just want a cover letter and a resume when people apply for a job on emails.
