So, to sum it all up, start with the first key, which is to compose a simple cover letter that is brief and gets directly to the point. Get the hiring manager's attention as quickly as possible by writing something interesting and bold (but not arrogant) within the first few sentences. Insert keywords in a manner that is logical and organic. Use templates and samples from the Internet to guide you, or consult a professional for assistance. Additionally, eschew a one-size-fits-all approach in favor of a highly tailored strategy that demonstrates knowledge of each individual company and hiring manager. Combine all of these keys and tips, and your search for a job might end up being much quicker and easier than you ever imagined it would be.
I find that people learn better by looking at an example. It is difficult to pick a profession where most people understand. Some of the ones I came up with were CFO , administrative assistant and a project manager . (You can see the samples by clicking on the link on each of the profession.) But all these are frankly, boring. So I thought maybe something a bit more fun for this dry subject. I am a fan of Harry Potter and this is a cover letter written by Severus Snape (before he became a Professor at Hogwarts) to Lord Voldemort applying to be a Death Eater. My explanations are highlighted in yellow .
Dear Lord Voldemort;
( Writing to a specific person )
A proven track record in potion making, spell casting especially in hexes and curses and a talented duellist is the background I’ll bring to your Death Eater position.
( Strong opening sentence appealing to the requirements of the job ).
