How to write a cover letter?

Personal information

On the left, your identity: last name, first name, address and contact information (phone, e-mail). On the right, the identity of your contact person: if the job posting specifies that the letter is to be sent to a particular person, address it to that person. The subject line should include the position you are applying for.

Format your contact information in a few clicks with CVDesignR, so that all recruiters can easily reach you.

Structure your cover letter in 3 main parts

A first paragraph that shows that you know the company well and that you have understood the recruiter's requirements. Use jargon or terminology specific to the sector or company.

Next, how well does your profile match the recruiter's expectations? You can demonstrate your skills relating to the position by using examples and references from your professional career.

In conclusion, you can explain in detail how your collaboration with the company will be beneficial for you and the company. Emphasize what you can bring to the team and why you would like to join them.

A cover letter for each application

For internships, if you are applying for several positions at the same time (in different companies), consider writing a single cover letter tailored to each sector or company. This will take little time thanks to CVDesignR, but it will allow you to distinguish yourself from other candidates for the same position.

Include only the information that stands out to you after carefully reading the job ad. Try to sell yourself without being too pushy or arrogant.
