The first paragraph should begin with you stating your telling your reader you are applying for the job and why. This section should be short and sweet, around three sentences long. Cover what role in the company you’re applying for, drop any names of people in the organization, and Give any compelling reasons you have applied for the position or company.
Next is the body of your cover letter, this is your chance to tell the employer properly how your skills and experiences make you a great candidate. Pick out three examples of major achievements and provide the story to back these up. Start it off with short introduction that focuses on your skills and experiences that make you a great match for the job. The next sentences should back this up with complementing information that exhibit your evidence in terms of specific positions/roles/responsibilities and so on. This section’s aim is to impress the employer. Lastly, your concluding paragraph tells the employer you are looking forward to an interview.
