Tips for your Cover Letter

Stand out from the rest with these three tips!

  1. Is it Important? - A Cover Letter is extremely important as it's likely what the recruiter will see first. It is a summary of your CV, Skills, Experience, and why you're the perfect fit for the job. Don't forget to: emphasize your accomplishments, express the reasons why you're interested in the job, state the mission of the job description, and how your strongest skills can contribute to the achievement of that mission, and lastly that you know something about their company. We suggest a Cover Letter even if a company does not require one.
  2. Use Keywords! - The goal is to sell yourself, in the quickest way possible as we all know nobody has that long of an intention span. You will need to use some basic catchphrases to catch the reader's attention. We CANNOT mention enough how your Cover Letter is like a marketing tool whereas you should use the keywords from their job description within your Cover Letter to gain the recruiters attention. If you do this, a recruiter who is just skimming over your cover letter will see the words they are looking for. Study the missions, the company, and use the keywords they have already told you they are looking for.
  3. Misspellings and grammatical mistakes - Don't have any period! This is your first impression. Especially when you're looking for an internship abroad where you will most likely be speaking another language, unfortunately, any mistake will be judged by the recruiter. A candidate that has a more grammatically correct Cover Letter will LIKELY be invited for an interview over a candidate with more experience but makes grammatical errors within their Cover Letter or CV. It shows the ease with the language, and even more so, attention to detail!
