What does a good cover letter include: example

No matter the exact job for which you’re writing your cover letter, the document will have to follow a standard structure—sure, you want to showcase your individuality, but it’s best to keep the layout of your cover letter in line with the general HR rules.

Here are the key elements of every well-written cover letter:

  1. 1 Heading: ideally, it sould be identical to the one on your resume. Include your full name, job title, and basic contact information.
  2. 2 Date and addressee’s details: include the date of when you’re writing the letter followed by the hiring manager’s name and physical address. If you don’t know exactly who you’re addressing your cover letter to, just use the company details.
  3. 3 Salutation: open your cover letter with a formal salutation. “Dear + Ms/Mr + Name + Surname” will do.
  4. 4 Introductory paragraph: provide a bit of background for why you’re applying for the job, identify the position you’re after and drop in one impressive detail about what you’ve achieved.
  5. 5 Central paragraphs: explain exactly what you can bring to the company, outline why you’re a good fit, and say what makes you want to join them.
  6. 6 Closing paragraph: thank them for their time and consideration, include a call to action, say you’re willing to tell them more about your competences during the interview.
  7. 7 Professional sign-off: use “Sincerely” or a synonym, followed by your full name. Optionally, you can include your contact information in the footer.
