Anonymous said: Hi, I was hoping you would be able to help me! I was advised that although a resume is obviously very important, an amazing cover letter should be included in order to even get your resume looked at. What should someone with very limited experience in the work force include in their cover letter?
Well first of all, I think you should consider the position you’re applying for when deciding whether or not to include a cover letter. Basic jobs such as retail wouldn’t be something you would include one for unless specifically asked. Assuming you are looking to include one, I would first focus on what the hiring manager is looking for. You don’t want to make them have to figure out how your skills meet their needs, your cover letter should do that for them. Therefore, the more you know about what they’re looking for, the more specific and compelling your letter can be.
I would start with some scrap paper and write out what the ad is looking for and what you offer in skill and experience to meet each need. Once you can see how you’re a good fit for them, I would pick your top 3-5 reasons why you’re an excellent candidate and really highlight those.
