An important point to note when writing your cover letter is to keep it brief, never writing more than one page.

As with resumes very few people enjoy reading cover letters particularly long-winded resumes that smack of disorganization.

Your letter should follow the standard protocol in letter writing, including your name and address, the employers name and address and the date.

See example below:

Amy Mathews,
         117 River St,
         Boston 02127.
         (H) 617 247 8459
         (M) 617 847 1269

Mr. Paul Kennedy,
Human Resources Manager,
Glen Dara Incorporated,
257 South Shore Plaza,
Boston, MA.

If you have become acquainted with your contact, you may begin your letter with the normal salutation, Dear Paul. However if not use the formal salutation beginning your letter with Dear Mr. Kennedy.

Your cover letter should be printed on quality-bonded stationery, preferably the same stationary that you have used in your resume. Use of the same stationery for both your resume and cover letter will demonstrate an image of balance and consistency.

It is vital that your cover letter demonstrates excellent organizational and interpersonal skills. This will ensure that your resume is given due consideration and adequate attention.
