A cover letter to a prospective employer must be concise and flawless where grammar and spelling are concerned. It should be carefully structured and well written because employers and personnel officers will judge a prospective employee on the quality of this letter.
Proofreading and editing will ensure that CVs and cover letters
- Conform to the standard rules of English and are free of spelling and grammatical errors.
- Highlight a candidate’s talents and strengths, especially in relation to the position they are applying for.
- Show that a prospective employee is interested in the post on offer.
The first sentence of a cover letter is often the hardest to write. Candidates have to capture their prospective employers’ attention early in this letter. Once a candidate has shown an interest in the position on offer, it is important they mention that they have the necessary qualifications to do the job; however, it is unnecessary to list all the job placements they may have undertaken. Candidates should also mention any special skills they may have in relation to the position.
In the final part of a cover letter, candidates should restate their interest in the position on offer.
