How to Write a Good Cover Letter?
A well-written and visually appealing cover letter is just as important as a well-written and visually appealing resume when applying for a job.
Human resource managers rarely look at every application for more than a minute, so your cover letter or resume is an excellent opportunity to draw attention and distinguish yourself from other candidates.
Taking the time to conduct thorough research on your potential employer and tailor your cover letter to ensure your content is appealing to the human resources manager can make a significant difference in how your application is received and evaluated.
What are the cover letter rules?
1-Shape: A cover letter or motivation letter should always be sent with the Resume. If sent physically (on paper), the cover page of the transaction should be the body of your e-mail if the application process was sent electronically. You should carefully choose the font, preferably the same font, in which you will present your resume. The text should be justified.
The Cover Letter should only be written manually if requested by the business. In this case, opt for black ink. Handwriting must be neat and fully legible. The paper should be white and plain, A4 size. To avoid messy writing, use a lined page, taking advantage of the transparency of the paper.
2- Content: The cover letter should be sent, whenever possible, to someone responsible for the company or organization. There should be no more than 4 paragraphs.
In the first paragraph, you can introduce yourself and write your academic history and degree. Then indicate that you are applying for a job based on your best professional skills and the job position for which you are suitable.
