When writing a cover letter to be submitted with your resume, consider what an employer or recruiter goes through and how many other cover letters and resumes they will read along with yours. Let me first begin by telling you that a cover letter is mandatory when submitting your resume to any company. The only circumstance under which there is an exception is if your resume will be hand delivered, you were told not to include a cover letter and the job is guaranteed to you. For most people looking for jobs in this weakened economy, this is not likely the case. There are several rules to which you should adhere with very little room for compromise. The main thing to remember is not to overdo it. Who wants to read a two page cover letter? Recruiters barely read a two page resume, more over a cover letter that length. Below is a simple format to follow when writing your cover letter.
Theres probably nothing more frustrating than getting your resume all prettied up to send to a company via an online source, only to realize that when you hit the send button, you dont know where in the world its going. This can be compared to sending your resume in quick sand. Its being sucked into an unseen, unknown world and you dont know if it will ever return some type of response for you.
Companies are very aware that people acquire employment for selfish reasons. Therefore, they are more interested in learning two things from your objective. The first is what you want to gain from employment from their company; this is your selfish part. By the same token, companies are equally as selfish and they want to know what they can get out of you. Therefore, the second part of your objective will tell the company why your selfish objective will serve a purpose at their specific company.
