It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with your cover letter. Instead of creating a form letter that looks like everyone else’s, write something that will stand out.
Stop starting your letter with “I am applying for…” If you’re applying through an online system, the company already know what position you’re applying for.
Avoid cliches like “I’m a fast learner” and “I think outside the box.” Show your creativity by writing something more interesting.
