Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about our Cover Letter Templates
What is a Cover Letter?
A Cover Letter is a one-page document you send with your CV when applying for jobs. Unlike a CV, which is filled with factual bullet points, the cover letter acts more as a personal statement to sell your candidacy to the hiring manager.
Cover letters are sometimes called a “letter of motivation”. As the name suggests, the letter should describe your personal motivations for applying to the job. This can include anecdotal reasons for your interest in the role as well as long term career aspirations.
When used correctly, the cover letter can be a great tool to win over the hiring manager with your personality and enthusiasm. For more examples on how to write a great cover letter, read our Ultimate Cover Letter Guide for 2023.
How to Write a Cover Letter?
A good cover letter is structured into the following paragraphs:
Introductory Paragraph: Include salutations and the role you’re applying for
Personal Background: A short paragraph introducing yourself together with a brief professional background
Why You?: The main body of the cover letter. Talk about why you’re the best candidate for the job. Include research you’ve done on the company as well as any soft skills you have which aren’t visible in your CV
Thank You and Closing: Thank the reader for their attention and end the letter
Write in a formal tone that communicates your professionalism while still demonstrating your enthusiasm for the role.
What Sections Should I Include in a Cover Letter?
Your Cover Letter should have 3 main sections: A Header Section (Introductory Paragraph), the Body (Personal Background and Why You?), and finally a Closing Section with a Call to Action.
Remember – your Cover Letter isn’t an essay! It’s a targeted letter that speaks directly to the Hiring Manager. Keep it concise, tailored and relevant for your reader.
How Long Should My Cover Letter Be?
Your Cover Letter should be no more than one page in length. Be succinct and sell yourself in the cover letter. Once you’ve captured their attention, use your Resume to go into more detail about your career history and Significant Achievements acquired throughout your career.
