4 Steps to a Winning Cover Letter

Your successful cover letter should include 4 key sections: a greeting, an opening, the body, and the closing.

The Greeting

Make sure you begin your cover letter with a short greeting that reflects what you know about the person you’re sending your letter to. If you know the name of the hiring manager, use their full name:Ex: Dear Hiring Manager,

The Opening

This should be a short introduction that includes the name of the company, the name of the job you’re applying for, why you’re applying, and why you think you’d be a good fit for the role.:

Our cover letter templates make it easy to cover all of the information you need.

The BODY

This section is the bulk of your cover letter, and needs to convince the reader why you’re right for the position. Without repeating the information on your resume, it should highlight some of your best accomplishments and skills, while also explaining anything on your resume that may need clarification (employment gaps, career change, etc.)

Use our templates to create compelling body copy quickly and easily.

The CLOSING

Your closing should reiterate your interest in and readiness for the job. It should be compelling enough to make an employer want to contact your for an interview.

Our cover letter templates include professional closings that you can easily modify to fit your needs.
