Cover Letter

Is your cover letter working to your advantage?

A cover letter often provides the first impression a potential employer will have of you. Although its main purpose is to introduce yourself and your job application, it’s also more importantly an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your written communication skills, level of professionalism and interest in working for the Company.

Key Cover Letter Tips

  • Keep it brief.

There is no need to write more than a few paragraphs. State who you are, why you are writing and where you heard about the company / vacancy.

  • Make it relevant.

Tailor your cover letter to the job you’re applying for. It’s OK to have a standard letter that you are sending out to various jobs but ensure you address the letter to the correct Company, person (if you have that information) and make specific reference to the position and highlight the key attributes and experience that directly related to the position you are applying for and/or your industry experience. There is no reason not to use some of the same language used in the advertisement.

  • Address the selection criteria.

Refer to the advertisement for key points and refer to them in your cover letter. Hiring Managers are looking for this information.

  • Keep the layout clear and well formatted.

Stick with a traditional formal letter style. Include your name address and contact number, the Company’s name, address and contact person (if available). Start with Dear (name), include a subject heading referring to the position you are applying for and sign off with ‘Yours Sincerely. All of this demonstrates professionalism and your ability to format business correspondence. Note: If you can, scan a copy of your signature to copy and paste – another example of your computer skills.

  • Be positive and enthusiastic.

Finish your letter by reiterating your enthusiasm about working for the Company and noting that you look forward to hearing from them.

  • Refer to your attachments.

Resume and Reference details if you’re sending them.

  • Double Check.

Then triple check your letter for correct addressee information, grammatical correctness and spelling before you send.

If you feel it is appropriate for the position attach a photo of yourself.

Tips to Help Increase Your Chances of Getting the Job

The work and research you do before your meeting is imperative to a successful interview. It is very impressive for a potential employer to know that you have invested time in learning about their business and understanding the context of your potential new job. E.g. If the interview comments to say that the business has recently released a new product and you can respond with ‘yes, I read about the release on your website’ then the interviewer will know you’ve come prepared. This might be the x-factor that sets you apart from other candidates.

Preparing for the Interview

  • Research the company, where it is and what it does. An excellent source for this is Google.
  • Re-read the Job Specification and the requirements for the position. What skills and experience do you have that meets the position requirements/what don’t you have?
  • Prepare your paperwork. Take a Presentation Folder with a copy of your resume, your references, certificates etc to take with you to the interview.
  • Be prepared to fill in the company’s internal application form and ensure that the details on your resume exactly match the details on your resume.
  • Allow for delays – plan to arrive early for the interview.

What to Wear

Dress to Impress. The golden rule is to dress up rather than down regardless of the company culture or your expectations of what the interviewer will wear. Your overall general grooming is just as important as what you wear. 

Your greatest asset is your smile and the ability to make eye contact with your Interviewer at all times.
