One of the things that gives me joy, is when i want to eat and find out all ingredients are complete. Kai, you don’t want to miss a food with a superb delicacy. Linking this to careers, we can say a good cover letter is the perfect ingredient you can ever add to your CV to make really nice. But the problem is applicants don’t even have a cover letter, those with cover letters write wrongly not knowing the perfect way to write. yes! its possible to have the right ingredients but you apply them wrongly to your food.
In this post, i will be taking you through a journey on how to write a good cover letter

First, what is a Cover Letter? A Cover Letter is a single-page letter written to the person or organization offering the job you’re applying for. A letter sent with, and explaining the contents of another document. (Most of the time CVs)
WHAT SHOULD A COVER LETTER INCLUDE FOR A JOB APPLICATION?
For job applications typical cover letters should include your name,email address and contact information at the top of the page. Within the first paragraph, mention the job you are applying for, show hiring managers how your skills and experience match the job description, expand on information you included in your resume, and explain how you plan to follow up.
WHAT SHOULD YOU AVOID IN A COVER LETTER?
When writing a cover letter, avoid repeating what’s in the resume. Instead, give additional context to show how you will help the company. Eliminate typical job seeker clichés (like saying that you’re “goal-oriented”). Also check to make sure there are no spelling and grammar errors and use bullet points to list specific job qualifications. In case you have doubts, it’s a good idea to hire a professional to write for you.
WHY DO YOU NEED A COVER LETTER?
A great cover letter gives you the chance to highlight the positive attributes for the job title. It also gives hiring managers more context about the information provided in your resume, and it allows you to mention salary expectations or answer any questions the human resources might have. However, if your cover letter is poorly written or if you’re applying online there is no need to submit a cover letter if it’s not specified within the job application.
