How to Write a Killer Cover Letter

A cover letter is similar to a brief introduction and should be submitted when applying for a job along with your resume.  It’s important that you take the time and effort to write a cover letter for each position you are applying for – it shows that you are genuinely interested in the job. 

When an employer looks through the cover letter they will usually determine whether you meet the position criteria based on the letter content before perusing your resume.

Some key points:

  • Make sure you check for spelling and grammatical errors before printing your cover letter.
  • Your cover letter should be no more than one page in length
  • Attach the cover letter to the front of your resume
  • Type the letter in an easy to read font such as Arial, Calibri or Times New Roman
  • If responding to an advertisement refer to the advert in your first line
  • Your letter should include your experience in one paragraph and your qualifications in another paragraph
  • Perhaps ask your family/carers or teachers to look over your resume and give you some feedback as to how to improve it.
  • Keep a copy of the letter for your future reference

Set yourself apart with action words that describe what you have contributed rather than what you have done on a daily basis.

Action words for your cover letter that will help you stand out include:
