The old-fashioned cover letter is boring and full of the same types of phrases. In a job market where many people are applying for the same position, making your cover letter memorable will allow you to stand out among the rest.
Express yourself: With today’s modern cover letter, adding value and telling a brief story is a true benefit to the reader, and should entice them to want to move forward. Here’s your chance to make your resume come to life!
Use the language in the job description: If the job posting states that it seeks a “Jack of all trades,” use this exact phrase to describe yourself. Be sure to include an example to solidify your point.
Thank your readers for their consideration: People took time out of their day to read what you wrote. Respect that, and show it.
Be proactive: Remember to end your cover letter with a date and time that you will be following up. This will be the first project you start and complete before even being hired. Employers and recruiters alike will appreciate your proactive approach, and you have a shot at standing above the rest.
