Hello Everyone, I am Niharika and welcome back to a new lesson. In today's lesson we
are gonna look at phrases to write an effective cover letter. Now when do you write a cover
letter? When you are applying for a job. And what's the most important thing that you have
to send? It's your resume. So along with your resume it is important for you to send a cover
letter as well. So what exactly is a cover letter? Well, cover letter is of course a
letter or a document that you send as an introduction to the employer. So kind of adding additional
information about yourself when you are applying for a job. So first impression counts, Am
I right ? So in this lesson we will help you with some phrases that will create an effective
and very impressive image of yourself in front of the employer. So let's get started. The
first thing that we are gonna look at is starting a cover letter. So how do you begin writing
your cover letter? Well of-course the first thing is addressing it. So if you don't know
the person's name then you just gonna write ' Hello' and followed by one of these phrases
here and if you know the person's name then you just gonna write 'To, Mr Smith' and then
followed by one of these expressions. So let's have a look, the very first one 'I am writing
in response to your advertisement posted on so and so website' So probably you spotted
this advertisement either on of these websites online or probably in the job column of a
newspaper. So if you spotted this advertisement then you have to mention it so you gonna begin
writing 'I am writing in response to your advertisement posted on' you can name the
website's name. Okay ! Now, another one - I was referred to you by - the person's name.
So you can just mention the person's name here, Now may be your friend mention " hey
you know what, there is a job opening and I think it's just perfect for you, why don't
you send them your resume" So this lady, or this friend of yours referred you for this
job, so go ahead and mention it in your cover letter. You gonna say - I was referred to
you by Mrs Johnson. Now another one - Please accept this letter as my application for the
position of ... So probably it is an position of an executive or manager or trainer so whatever
the opening is for, whatever job opening it is like may be its for a trainer. So you gonna
write please accept this letter as my application for the position of a Trainer. So that's how
you will begin writing your cover letter. If you have spotted an advertisement, this
is the expression you gonna use, if someone has referred to you for this job then you
gonna use this and then if its just in general then you can use this, okay! Now another thing
that you need to include in your cover letter is reasoning.
So giving a reason on why this job is just perfect for you. So how do you do that? well,
use one of these two expressions - The first one - This position represents an opportunity
to continue my career path. So probably you are looking forward for a change , you are
probably looking for a better opportunity and this job opening is just perfect for you.
So you are gonna give a reason that you know probably this position represents an opportunity
to continue your career path. So you are looking for a change, you are looking for a jump then
you mention this. Another one - My professional skills appear to be well suited to your company's
requirement. Now usually when you go online and you are looking for jobs you know the
company's requirements are always mentioned and if you think that you are just perfect
- you do have the skills, you do have qualifications and its just perfectly suits the requirements
then mention this. 'My professional skills appear to be well suited to your company's
requirements' Okay, so this is one of the expressions that
you can use. And now lets have a look at some expressions that will help you to close your
cover letter. So the phrases that you can use to close your cover letter are - If you
are interested, please contact me. So if you think that your skills and your qualifications
suit the requirements and you think they might end up calling you then just keep it very
simple - If you are interested, please contact me and then you can mention your contact details.
Now, of course your resume also has your contact details but in case you want to mention it
in your cover letter as well, that is fine. Another one - I am eager to talk about the
contribution I could make to your firm. Now when do you use this?
When you are really excited and you are waiting them to call you for an interview, so mention
this - I am eager to talk about the contribution I could make to your firm. So it means that
you are very positive and you looking forward to meet them in person. And then the last
one - I look forward with enthusiasm to an opportunity for an interview. So this is like
a direct phrase, that yes I am sending you my resume and I am really excited and enthusiastic
about attending an interview or like a meeting in person. So mention this - I look forward
with enthusiasm to an opportunity for an interview. So your cover letter has to be really short.
You cannot end up adding too much of information in it because your resume is a more detailed
information, gives the employer a more detailed information. So a cover letter should be simple,
short and sweet. So go ahead, use these phrases that you have learnt today, I hope they are
helpful to you and do not forget to enclose your resume. Right? I will be back with a
new lesson, till then you take care and good luck for your interview.
