It’s very important to keep the letter brief, but direct to the point. Put in mind that the person who gets to receive this letter is often very busy reviewing other resumes, too. The purpose of the letter is merely to introduce yourself to the person employer. It should be direct to the point but precise.
Your reasons for seeking a new job. Unless you are unemployed, giving a reason why you are looking for a new job can be insightful for an employer. There is no need to go into detail or badmouth your current/past employer, but a simple statement about wanting to grow in your field or change your career path would be sufficient.
Another tip to writing a good cover letter is to make sure that it is personal. You may be aware that it is common and appropriate to address the reader as “Sir” or “Madam”. While these terms are appropriate and is acceptable, it is best that you address the hiring manager of the company you are applying for with his name.
Most employers would consider hiring someone that will stand out from the crowd and those that are able to clearly demonstrate how they will be able to fit within the organization, in case they are hired. A job seeker will be able to show the employer what they are capable of doing, thus giving them a chance to be short listed for an interview.
