The old-fashioned cover letter is boring and full of the same types of phrases. In a job market where many people are applying for the same position, making your cover letter memorable will allow you to stand out among the rest.
Express yourself: With today’s modern cover letter, adding value and telling a brief story is a true benefit to the reader, and should entice them to want to move forward. Here’s your chance to make your resume come to life!
Use the language in the job description: If the job posting states that it seeks a “Jack of all trades,” use this exact phrase to describe yourself. Be sure to include an example to solidify your point.
Thank your readers for their consideration: People took time out of their day to read what you wrote. Respect that, and show it.
Be proactive: Remember to end your cover letter with a date and time that you will be following up. This will be the first project you start and complete before even being hired. Employers and recruiters alike will appreciate your proactive approach, and you have a shot at standing above the rest.
Dear Mr. Frank
This cover letter is a response to your post on JobSeekers for an Office Draftsman. My artistry and professional experiences make me an ideal candidate for the position. I have spent the last five years developing a range of talents in the draftsman field that would be of great benefit to all your projects.
My portfolio demonstrates not just my technical facility but my strong hand at manual drawings that are often used as blueprints for electronic documents. I primarily utilise AutoCAD for designs but am quite familiar with alternatives like FreeCAD SolidWorks and DraftSight. I keep abreast of computer designing software so that I am prepared to adapt to any organisations tech structure and resources. I also model in Autodesk Inventor and use Vue to create extensive landscapes for representation fabrication approval and installation. My office draftsman skills also include meticulous design and solutions research for the purpose of producing a practical project that can be completed in a timely and cost effective manner.
I would certainly like to set up an interview. We can further discuss your Office Draftsman opportunity and I can provide more detail about my background. Feel free to contact me any morning before 11 a.m. Or email me at any time. I will get back to you within an hour.
