A cover letter is written to convince the recruiter that you are the best person for the post applied for. However, a cover letter is not a praise letter; it should contain all the positive aspects you possess. To write a remarkable cover letter you need to follow a specific format. Ideally a cover letter is divided in three sections. The first section includes name and address with contact details of the applicant. Mention your name with full address and correct contact number on the left side. This is then followed by reference. Here you are supposed to mention the purpose of writing a cover letter. If you can, mention the date and where have you read the advertisement. Then comes the next section that explains your strengths, how you are the best possible applicant for the job applied, educational qualifications and previous job experience.
In the last section as an applicant you need to tell the recruiter your expectations from them. It is better to tell them how you would like to get in touch with them. Assure them that you would fulfill all the responsibilities of the post applied. Write your name and sign it. Ensure that your signature is authentic.
