5 Steps to make a Perfect Resume | How to make a cover letter


Press the bell Icon and never miss
an update from Aasaanjobs. You were finally able to get in touch with
the recruiter from your dream company. You started exchanging emails, had a great conversation. She thought you were really smart and you
would fit the culture there. You were getting excited and you finally got that email saying, “hey you know what we might be having a job opening that will be perfect for you! Why don’t you send in your CV? But then came the most dreaded line in that email. Please attach a cover letter! The first part of your cover letter is probably
the most simple of all and we’ll call it the Header. What comprises the Header? It’s simply your Name, your Email address
and your Phone number. Make sure you have a professional email address and you are not using the one’s you used to use while you were in your high school. The second part of the cover letter is called
the greeting. Now what you have to do is figure out the
name of the hiring manager. Do some research, go on LinkedIn and figure out who is the person who is going to be reading your cover letter and address it to them. Start with Dear Ms. Jones or whatever their
Last name is. When it comes to First name Vs Last name, always use the Last name
of the person you are writing to. Up next is the Opening Paragraph. And here you need to tell the recruiter how excited you are about this role and how you are the perfect fit for the role. You need to convince them to go through your CV and how it would be a monumentally
stupid idea to not hire you. You can write something like, “I am enthusiastic
about marketing which is why I am incredibly happy to be applying for such and such role
at your esteemed organization. You can mention brief highlights from your
previous job roles that makes you a perfect fit for this job. Now what you already did in the previous paragraph is tell the company what you bring to the table and why they should consider you. Now let’s turn around the tables and you tell them,
why they are a perfect fit for you. Talk about what you like the most about this
company in particular, maybe it’s their culture, maybe it’s some of the projects they have
been working on and you feel it will be a great experience for you and how you will be able to contribute to those projects. And finally we come to the closing paragraph. What you need to do here is make sure you
don’t appear too needy and say something like, “I hope you will consider me for this position”. You should also not use cliched lines such as, “Thank You for your consideration and your time”. How about you simply say something like, “I would love the opportunity to discuss how my experience in the previous companies will help grow the new company
that you are applying to.” And you can sign off with “Regards”
and your name. And now you can reply to the recruiter from
your dream company. Send in your cover letter and I am sure they’ll
be impressed. I hope this video was able to add value to
you. If there are more topics you would like us to make a video on, just comment it below and we’ll get back to you. If you like the content here,

  • Hi Viren, as usual your video was nice and short and it was to the point. You very well explained each and every part of cover letter from header to closing paragraph. The examples given by you were also nice. Especially the tip at the last about not being needy was really good. This video will surely be helpful to all of job seekers especially for those who have never wrote a cover letter. Well done and thumbs up.
