A cover letter is a very important document because it serves as a support document to a resume. The main goal of cover letter is to inform a prospective employer about the applicant. The letter also aims to provide information about the applicant's educational attainment, skills and of course, working experience.



Jobseekers must be highly aware that this document is the first thing that the employer will come across. This is the main reason why an individual looking for a job must learn how to write a professional cover letter.



Listed b
elow are some simple tips on how a jobseeker can come up with a letter that is sure to keep an employer interested.



For a jobseeker who is applying for a job for the first time and who is not sure how to write a good cover letter, a sample template is recommended to be checked out. He can either search for templates from the internet. He can also ask a friend or a relative who has already written letters in the past and has been accepted for that dream job. An applicant can always base his letters on the sample templates that he has found.



A jobseeker must also make sure that his letter is written not only with good quality but with high quality. He should also be aware of the information that must be included in the document.



First of all, a jobseeker must know both the name of the contact person and the name of the company. He must also ensure that he got the information right. An interview will never happen if one has acquired the wrong information.



It is also recommended that the applicant addresses the letter to an individual who is working in the company. If it is possible, a person looking for a job can ask for a contact person so that he can properly address the latter when he writes the letter. The name of the person must be mentioned in the first paragraph.



A jobseeker must make sure that his letter does not contain typographical and grammatical errors. He can check the letter by reading it out loud or by asking a friend to check it for him.



Another important thing that the applicant must not forget is consistency. He must ensure to use only one font all throughout the letter. The font as well as the font size must be easy to read and understand. The format should also be consistent. Proper spacing must also be observed.



The cover letter must be printed on bond paper with good quality. A jobseeker can use the same paper where his resume was printed on. Off white colored paper will always be the perfect choice.



Finally, a jobseeker must never forget to include his personal information, the position that he is applying for and the place where he found the job opening post. He must also make sure that his personal information is correct in case the employer decides to call him for another interview.
