… why your cover letter is boring?
Imagine a beautician that wants to work in a beauty salon. Most of the cover letters are something like that:
I am writing to apply for the position of beautician in your company…”
So boring! Who wants to read that kind of cover letter?
I remember when my mom would get really annoyed with me for using up her best nails varnish, but I had no choice… my dolls had to have beautiful nails!
With time I left the dolls and began painting my friends nails at school. Before I knew it I was doing my neighbors nails too.
I’ve been following the news and updates your studio publishes on social media and could hardly believe my luck when I saw you were looking to recruit a new beautician.
I’m available to come and talk to you and to show you what I can bring to your studio to help you became the number one beauty salon in town.”
That is a cover letter with personality! 🙂
You should start with your own story, not with “Dear Sir”… Show passion!
