Looking for a job that interests you is relatively easy, writing a resume is doable, but churning out a cover letter that would impress the hiring managers? Now, that’s the difficult part.
After all, that’s the first thing employers look at before they decide whether to click on the attached CV. Your cover letter can give managers a preview of your personality: Copying-and-pasting everything from the internet suggests laziness, while having errors peppered all over the copy alludes to carelessness.
Writing a cover letter that makes the employers want to hire you is difficult, but it’s not impossible. So the next time you have Microsoft Word opened to write one, keep in mind these pointers.
