Are you applying for your dreamed job? If so, the first thing you have to figure out is how to make your potential employer impressed on you. As the potential employer does not know you, how to do such a thing? Create the most impressive cover letter!

Cover letter is a letter used for applying any job title. It contains the purpose of writing, a few relevant experiences and skills, and request on the opportunity which you personally meet the requirements. 



A good and impressive cover letter should not be more than one page long and consisting of 3 to 4 paragraphs. Each paragraph focuses on different information.

Paragraph 1

In this paragraph, you have to express why are you writing the letter. Set the point of contact, i.e. where you find the ads, what the position offered. You also have to explain a brief about you.

Paragraph 2 and/or 3

This part is extremely important for the employer to consider you. In this paragraph, you have to:

  1. Highlight a few of the most outstanding points of your resume.
  2. Increase the higher potential for you to consider by mentioning the points indicating you are the right person for the position they are offering. 
  3.  State your background of the study, experiences, and skill that meet the requirements. Elaborate them. 

Paragraph 3 (or 4) - closing paragraph 

This is also important to impress your potential employer. Politely request an interview on the employer's convenience. You should also indicate the supporting documents along with the email in a separate part of the cover letter, including portofolio and such a thing.

  • Do not use such words as weakening your message, for example "fairly experienced: or "some knowledge".
  • Never start every sentence or paragraph with "I".
  • Use a formal font, such as Calibri, Georgia, Arial, or Times New Roman.
  • Provide a plenty of spaces around the edges of the page and clear space between each paragraph or section.
