10 Important Points to Have A Flawless Cover Letter
- Avoid Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation Marks Mistakes:
Nothing can be worse than a cover letter which has lots of grammar, spelling and punctuation marks mistakes. Do you think that how such mistakes seem to an employer? Such mistakes show that you aren’t a careful person and you don’t give importance to your job, you didn’t go to a school and you don’t know anything.
A little grammar mistake is not too much important.

If you apply for a job in a foreign language, you should be more careful. You have to be careful grammar, spelling and punctuation marks mistakes. And you have to have a well CV or a resume.
You have to take a glance to your cover letter which you prepared. Proofread and edit it. Let’s think; if there is a person who is in same qualification with you and you have too much mistakes, which one he or she will choose? You or another applicant? Of course, another applicant.
- Express yourself well.
You should show that you are interested in that job for long term. Operations are built by hardworking people. If a person wants to work just for a month or a year, he or she doesn’t have any value by the employer.
To take a new person for the job is expensive, to filter applicants, to make job interviews and to find a suitable person necessitates long time and cost, to train them and to learn the job takes time. In the first times, a worker doesn’t have any value.
You have to express yourself correctly. They should trust you without thinking. You have to speak so well and introduce yourself. You need to express yourself well.
- Specify you requires.
You should specify you requires. And you have to talk with Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority about all of thing of job; salary, job conditions, vacation days, working hours, etc.
- Be professionalism.
You should offer yourself as a professional. Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority prefers to take the person who has strong strengths for the job. They don’t prefer people who are not sure themselves, don’t trust themselves. If you complain your previous job to your new employer, if you complain your life and your history, if you hate making some works, if you express yourself wrongly and if you don’t like your life and express it, they don’t have to be accepted for the job. Because Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority doesn’t prefer such people. Because such people always have a problem about their works, their life and their educational background, their experiences. If you act so, Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority thinks that if this applicant cannot deal with his or her employer, he or she cannot deal with me, if this applicant complains his or her previous employer, he or she complains also me. This applicant has negative behaviors. This applicant isn’t the person who I look for.
- Put yourself into into the employer’s shoes.
You have to put yourself into Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority’s shoes. It is important so you can show empathy towards. You can understand him or her more clearly and you act more carefully. Human Resources Specialist or employer or manager or authority demands to find an employee who has good qualifications. If you don’t have good qualifications, it is not important your job application for him or her. If you want to be accepted, you should express your features which are related to that position. You have to make a connect your features with the job’s necessaries. And you have to write your cover letter short and brief. You don’t need to write unnecessary details. You should just offer yourself in your cover letter. Don’t forget that it isn’t important that what you write, it is important that what you have as qualification.
