A well-written cover letter should allow for a natural
and logical progression.
In the first paragraph, introduce yourself briefly,
mention the position you are applying to, and specify
how you learned about the job opening. This step is
important because it will provide context for the rest
of the letter and make you more personable.
In the following paragraph(s), mention why you are
interested in the job opening and discuss how your
background makes you qualified for the position.
You should conclude the cover letter with a request for
an interview. Also make sure to state your contact
information (phone and e-mail) and to thank the
recruiter for his or her time and consideration.
