5 quick tips for writing impressive cover letters

In order to get past the first screening step during the hiring process you must have a well-crafted cover letter. Otherwise, no one will even look at your resume, no matter how impressive it might be.

  1. Directly address the hiring manager for the position
  2. Highlight leadership positions and relevant skills
  3. Avoid describing yourself with cliches such as team player or people person 
  4. Never repeat information that is already on your resume
  5. Do not begin sentences with "I"
