Letters by Sector: Medical
First impressions are important in any successful job hunt, it could mean the difference between getting hired or not in the medical sector. Make a good first impression and capture the attention of your recruiter by introducing yourself in a way that capitalizes on your best skills and attributes. Show to your potential employer your passion in the field.
But skills and passion will only take you so far, without the proper cover letter format. Remember, less is more. Three paragraphs tops and skips lengthy expositions and jump right into the juicy parts. Start the purpose of your cover letter in the first paragraph, your cover letter should cut on the small talk and be straight to the point.
Focus on the needs of the specific health care organizations and not your own requirements as a job seeker. Visit the company’s website or review their job posting, learn more about the organization then use this knowledge in your cover letter to demonstrate how your skills and experience can benefit the company.
