Letters by Job Type: Assistant
Every successful job application starts off with a great resume, and even better cover letter. Applying in the assistant sector is tough business, you have hundreds or even thousands of competitors out there – but hat cover letter of yours is enough to make you stand out.
It’s all about the content. Think not what the company can do for you; think of what you can do for your company. Your hiring manager is already aware of how great the position is for you – what they really want to know is what you’re going to bring to the position and company.
Clearly show what you’re capable of – beyond explaining what you’ve done in your past work, show hiring managers what you can do in the future. Determine the key requirements needed for the job, and expand upon them. Do this by showcasing your skills, focus on your skills that are relevant to the job you’re applying for.
