Third paragraph: Call to action
While not all jobs will require a cover letter, it’s always a good idea to include one with your job application. Even for an entry-level position, a cover letter sets you apart from other applicants since it’s the first thing most employers see.
If you’re not sure how to write a cover letter, ResumeHelp has some helpful cover letter templates and tips to help you get started. Make sure to proofread your cover letter before submitting it to a hiring manager to ensure there are no spelling or grammatical errors.
Your cover letter should be around half a page to three-quarters of a page long. If it’s shorter than half a page, it looks like you didn’t put much effort in. If it’s longer than three-quarters of a page, it might be overwhelming for recruiters or hiring managers to read. Writing between 200 and 350 words is perfect for a cover letter.
Yes, you can still write up a perfectly good cover letter if you don’t have many years of experience. Simply include plenty of relevant skills and any certifications, achievements or awards you’ve received. You can also mention internships, volunteer work and notable activities that make use of teaching skills.
