Clean Up Your Cover Letter
Your cover letter is often the very first thing that potential employers will see before they even open your CV. While you may want to fill it with all your achievements and a long and earnest plea to be given a chance to show how wonderful you are, potential employers don’t have time to read paragraphs and paragraphs. Try these tips to grab attention from the get go:
Keep it short – two paragraphs is more than enough
Spellcheck – use it
Search for words like ‘really’ and ‘very’ and then remove them
Make sure your contact information is correct
