Cover letters are an important part of any job application. It provides you with an opportunity to differentiate yourself from other candidates. What is your personal point of difference? You can also succinctly address the selection criteria in the job advertisement – summarise how your experience makes you a great fit for this role. Also, address the person mentioned in the job advertisement to give it a personal touch. Check your grammar and spelling as the cover letter can always give the employer information on how well you can write and express yourself. I have seen many cover letters that talk about the candidates’ personal lives. Please don’t talk about your children and your marital status, and don’t plead to be given a chance to prove yourself. Keep it professional and focused on the requirements of the job being advertised.
