Cover Letter

You want to start the cover letter by immediately mentioning a connection with the company because if you do this right, it will keep them reading past the first sentence and onto why they should be considering you for the role.

Keep the length of your cover letter to three paragraphs maximum. Just like how your resume should be one page, your cover letter should only have three paragraphs with two to three sentences each.

Include all the important information in a concise and structured way. Right after the connection or hook sentence, you dive right into the skills and experiences that make you a strong candidate. The third paragraph can be a bit more generic since you usually end the cover letter by thanking the reader for his or her time, and reinforcing your strong desire to join their company.

Use a simple cover letter template.
