When writing a cover letter for a job you should ensure that it is an impressive one as this is the first impression that you make on the screening committee or your prospective employer. Every job cover letter, be it an IT Manager Cover Letter or an office assistant cover letter should comprise of a brief account of the applicant’s educational qualification, experience and skills. It should also comprise of a concise description of the various projects handled by the candidate. The concluding paragraph with a call for action should comprise of the contact details of the candidate, thus making it easier for the employer to contact him.
* Make every effort to get a specific name. If you absolutely cannot,
address your letter to the right department, making sure you know the
current name of the department--for example, Human Resources vs.
+ If you are unable to get a name or do not even have the employer name (for example, if you are replying to a "blind" ad), do not use "Dear Sir/Madam" or "To Whom It May Concern." "Dear Employer," "(Position Title) Search Committee," or "Director of (fill in appropriate department)" are examples of appropriate salutations in these cases.
