How to Write Perfect Cover Letter

Cover letter is a very important part of job application. You should write it with some thought as this is your first opportunity to connect with the hiring person. A poorly written cover letter will most likely disqualify you from further considerations as it shows either you don't care about the job or you are incompetent. Here are a few points to note in writing your cover letter:

- Cover letters must be one page or less

- Cover letters must be error-free

- Start with the right sample cover letter so you can customize it to fit your needs; you can download 5 free sample cover letters from Ezega Jobs

- Try to find name of the hiring manager so you can address directly. Otherwise, address it "Dear Hiring Manager:"

- Introduce yourself properly, like "I am thrilled to be applying for the open..."

- Acknowledge the job requirement of the company rather than just talking about yourself and your experience, regardless of fit

- Write a few nice things about the company and why you are interested in joinging

- Write a few things in your experience that you think will be useful to meet the stated job requirements

- Write how excited you are about the company and you are available for interview anytime

- Thank the hiring manager for his/her time and consideration

- Sign off properly - Like "Sincerely", "Best Regards", etc., and then your name below
