Communication between an individual and an organization is known as Application letter. An Application or cover letter should convey clarity of thought and highlight your writing skills. Never use any slang or humor in a cover letter. The average cover letter should not exceed one page and should be in the following format:
State the purpose of the letter in the first paragraph. Be precise and professional, stating how you heard of the position, mentioning the name of the employee if you were referred internally.
Highlight your experience, especially international experience, in the second and third paragraphs. This is your opportunity to sell yourself by drawing attention to your skills and experiences.
A good strategy is to describe your previous experiences from an employer’s perspective instead of your own.
Suggest for follow-up action such as in interview and add a short affirmative sentence about yourself in the last paragraph.
Cover letters require some quality time invested in their creation and need to be revised often. They can open the door for an interview and must be utilized to the utmost.
Add something unique to your cover letter that will make the recruiter recall you
