Have you ever sent hundreds of cover letters with little response? We all know it’s not enough to send a cover letter. You have to stand out from the crowd.

In today’s job market, the competition is fierce. Getting a hiring manager’s attention takes more than sending a generic cover letter.

In this post, I’ll share some proven tips for teaching cover letters to help you get hired for your desired job.

I’ve learned a little secret over the years working with hundreds of clients: most job applicants aren’t ready to discuss their strengths and weaknesses. They usually avoid talking about either one. They don’t know what they need to do to get ahead. So, let me share my story with you, and together we’ll teach you how to write cover letters that will get you the job.


Teaching Cover Letters

You’ve heard the saying that “it takes 10,000 hours to master something.” That doesn’t mean you should start trying to master things only after spending ten years on the couch.

You’ll never master anything if you don’t put in the work.

The same principle applies to writing cover letters.

You’re not alone if you’ve ever sent dozens of cover letters without responses. The reason why cover letters are so under-utilized is that they are perceived as a waste of time.

However, they are an essential part of every job application process.

Cover letters separate you from the pack and help you get noticed by hiring managers.

The good news is that you don’t have to spend hours and hours crafting cover letters. You can create one template that you can use for all of your job applications.

The templates below result from years of experience in creating cover letters. They are designed to help you stand out from the crowd.

The best cover letter examples

It would be best to do several things to ensure your cover letter stands out. First, you must show interest in the company’s mission, culture, and values.

You must also demonstrate that you’ve researched the company and understand its industry. Finally, you must provide a compelling reason why you’re the perfect person for the position.

Below are ten cover letter examples that I’ve received and found effective. They’re all written by people who have applied for the same position. You can use them as inspiration for your cover letters.

Where should you apply for a job?

The question of where you should apply for a job is something that most job seekers struggle with. It’s like a Rubik’s Cube that never ends.

It starts with figuring out what job you want. Some people focus on the specific job title; others focus on the company, industry, and location. Once you’ve decided what position you’re interested in, you must figure out what companies are hiring in that area.

When looking at companies, you need to consider their size, how well it’s doing financially, and if they’re hiring right now. You also want to ask yourself if the job you’re applying for fits you.

After you’ve figured out what companies you want to work for, you need to start applying to those companies.

Teaching Cover Letters That Will Get You Interviewed

How to write a cover letter that gets you a job? There’s only one solution: Stand out from the crowd.

Cover letters are a necessary evil. They’re required by law. But that doesn’t mean you have to write a generic cover letter.

Here are some pointers to help you craft a cover letter that will get you noticed:

  1. Choose a clear and simple approach

Avoid using complicated jargon. Keep it short, concise, and clear. Don’t bury the information in the second paragraph.

  1. Write for the reader.

Your cover letter should be written for the reader, not for you. If you can’t think of what to say, ask yourself what you would say to a friend with a similar problem.

  1. Use action verbs

Use active verbs such as “submit,” “apply,” “resume,” “respond,” and “ask.”

  1. Be clear

Don’t use vague words such as “very,” “extremely,” and “unfortunately.”

  1. Be enthusiastic

It would help if you sold yourself. Talk about why you’re the best candidate for the position.

  1. Don’t use clichés

There are certain phrases and sentences that everybody knows. If you use them, it will sound cheesy.

  1. Don’t just copy and paste

Every company has different requirements. Every company is another.

  1. Include a call to action.

The last thing you want to do is send out a cover letter that goes unanswered. It would help if you gave your reader something to do.

  1. Proofread

It’s easy to overlook this step.

  1. Practice

Read the instructions again and again until you feel confident.

Q: How important is a cover letter?
