How to write a cover letter .

A resume without a cover letter is like a burger without a bun .

If you really wanted a job from somebody , you wouldn't send them a burger without a bun , would you ?

Of course not , you will need a computer typewriter or some other mechanical writing device .

A cover letter should never be handwritten .

Step one , address the letter to a specific person writing to whom it may concern is lazy .

Tracking down the right person shows real moxie .

If you're unsure who to write , call the company and ask , make sure you get their exact title and correct spelling of their name .

Step two , open your letter with a short introduction that gets right to the point , say what position you're after and how you found out about it .

Step three , demonstrate that you understand what the company does and show enthusiasm for whatever that is read through the company's website to find details you can mention in your letter .

Step four , relate your past work experience to the current opening .

Don't count on employers to connect the dots and realize how your previous jobs are relevant .

Step five , if you're responding to a job posting , adapt your writing to address specific things mentioned in the post .

Keep your cover letter short and concise .

It shouldn't be longer than a page .

A few brief paragraphs is enough .

Step six .

If you're attaching additional materials like a portfolio or a reel , mention that at the end of the letter step seven , after thanking your reader sign off with a suitable closing like sincerely or best and type your name on the next line .

If you're mailing your letter , leave four blank lines between your closing and your type name .

So you have room for your signature step eight .

Make sure you've included all your contact information even if it's already on your resume .

Step nine proof , read your letter carefully , word by word .

Have a friend read it over at least twice if you're emailing the letter , send it to yourself first to make sure there are no formatting errors .
