BETTER DEAL SUPERMARKET
At best, a cover letter can help
a job-seeker stand out from the
pack. At worst, it can make a
promising candidate seem like
an uncreative cut-and-paster.
Sadly, the vast majority of cover
letters read essentially the
same: Retreads of resumes that
ramble on while repeating the
obvious. Would you read one of
these to the end if it were put in
front of you? Probably not, and
nor would most hiring man-
Of course, the Internet is full
of tips and tutorials on writing a
cover letter, but few of them give
much useful information other
than the obvious ("Use good
grammar!"). So I got to thinking
about what cover letter tips and
techniques have served me over
the years. I came up with these
six golden rules for writing a
cover letter somebody will actu-
ally want to read.
1) Don t repeat your resume
A lot of people write cover letters
as if they were paragraph-form
resumes. Fact is, your letter will be
stapled (or attached to the same
email) as your actual resume, so
you can assume that they ll at least
glance at it (and probably with a
keener eye than your cover letter).
Instead, use your cover letter to
show personality, curiosity, and an
interest in the field you are applying
to work in. My favorite pro
tip: Google around for the history
of your field or company, and sprin-
kle some cool historical facts into
your cover letter (or even use one
as a lead). If I was applying for a
job in tech, I might talk about how
thrilling it was to see Moore s law
transform technology before my
eyes, and how thrilled I am to be
a part of this transformation. If I
were applying for a job in fashion,
I might talk about how much fash-
ion has changed since the 80s (a
lot!). Everything has a hidden his-
tory. Use it to show expertise and
2) Keep it short
Less. Is. More. Three paragraphs,
tops. Half a page, tops. Skip lengthy
exposition and jump right into
3) Address Nobody
Sometimes, you don t know
exactly who you should be address-
ing your letter to. Nix the generic
and bland "Dear Hiring Manager"
or "To Whom It May Concern". If
you absolutely don t know who you
should be addressing, then don t
address anybody. Instead, just jump
right into the body of the letter.
Not every office computer can
read .docx or .pages files, but vir-
tually everybody can open a PDF
file without any conversion. File
conversions are bad for two huge
reasons. First, they are just as likely
to not bother and move onto the
next applicant. And, second, con-
versions can introduce formatting
errors. Both are bad. (Note: This
story originally suggested .doc files.
Definitely better than .docx, but,
as the comments pointed out, PDF
is surely better. It can t be easily
tampered with, and you have more
control over how it appears on
somebody s screen.)
5) Never ever, ever use the
"My name is ___, and I am
applying for the position as
____". They already know this, and
you ll sound inexperienced.
6) Close strong
Finish off by quickly (and I
mean quickly) explaining how your
experience or worldview will help
you at the job. That s key. That s
the closer. And it can be done in
one to two seconds. If it goes any
longer, you re just rambling.
