Letters by Sector: Management
A great management candidate needs a great cover letter. You need to convince your potential employer that you have what it takes to be successful in managing people. The power of a cover letter to create an effective job application should never be underestimated. A good cover letter will grab the attention of your employer and persuade them to take more attention to your resume. A good resume and an equally cover letter together is a sure way to land that dream job!
But here a some notes to ensure your cover letter will be something your recruiter will take note of.
Don’t regritate your resume, instead of just repeating yourself, use your cover letter to describe your experiences and skills in much clearer detail. All the information that you couldn’t squeeze into your one page resume can now be written on your letter! A cover letter gives you the full freedom to showcase what you can offer to the company. Tell a story of how your skills and experience really stood out and made a difference to the organization you once worked for. But don’t just focus on your accomplishments alone -- what hiring managers really want to know is how you can contribute to their company. In that note, beyond explaining what you’ve done in the past, show hiring managers what you can do in the future.
