What makes your cover letter stand out to employers?

Senior Technical Recruiter, Indeed
J. Palmer

I’m an experienced recruiter and I’ve been a hiring manager, too. I’ve seen the same mistakes again and again throughout my career. But if you take a little extra time to avoid these common problems, your cover letter should really stand out!

Remember these four questions to help you write a successful cover letter and get hired:

  • Why do you want to work for the company? What interests you about them?
    • Talk about how your personality and skills align with what they do
  • Why are you a good fit for this company and the job?
    • Write about how your past work, life experiences and skills meet the important requirements of the job
  • How are you personalizing this cover letter sample?
    • Tailor your cover letter to the job you’re applying for
    • Address the cover letter to whoever will be reading it. If you don’t know who will be reading it, you can address it as “To the Hiring Committee” or “To the Hiring Manager”
  • Have you proofread your cover letter?
    • Make sure to check for correct spelling and grammar before sending out your cover letter!

Dear Ms Sofia Flores,

I a firm a believer of high quality products that present a solution to a consumer problem. Above that, I believe in amplifying sales of good products by creating effective marketing strategies that fully represent the true value of a product. How your consumers perceive your brand has a drastic impact on how well your products sell. This where I step in.

With an extensive experience in creating effective marketing strategies that have helped companies sell millions of dollars worth of products, I know that I am the perfect match for your job position. I know that the product your company sells is a good one, but the flaw I find is in the way your current marketing strategies are executed which does not give the product justice. I believe your company could be huge and I believe I have the knowledge, skills and support to help your company reach its full potential by assuming the role of Marketing Coordinator.

Having worked with several different brands of the same industry, I have helped startups exceed their annual growth goals by tenfold and have been part of the marketing team driving some of the most successful ads around.

I am ready and ambitious to begin a new journey with your company and have the credentials and track record to support my ambition. I look forward to hearing from you and am available at your earliest convenience.
