Writing a Cover Letter

How To Write a Cover Letter

Hiring managers receive tonnes of applications and a well-written cover letter could determine whether you get an interview or not. In these competitive times they might not even get read if certain pieces of information aren’t found quickly.

Here are some tips on how to craft a good cover letter:

Tailor each cover letter for each job application.

Find out the name of the person hiring and address it to them. As in conversations, if you mention a person’s name, it keeps their attention longer than if you don’t.

If the job specifies a required qualification e.g. CCNA certification, make sure you highlight that you have this near the top of your cover letter.

We have come across cases where applicants possessing the necessary qualities were not called in for an interview because they buried the key points in their CV.
