Step 1: Keep it short
Less is more when it comes to a cover letter. You should have at most, three paragraphs. All your information including address, salutations, and closing must be one A4 page.
Step 2: Proofread before applying
It is important for you to check the letter for mistakes. Ask a friend or family member to proofread the letter before you email or post it.
Step 3: Use simple language and the same font and style as your resume
The experts recommend using:
- A font that is easy to read such as 11 points Arial or 12 point Times New Roman
- 5-line spacing
- A4 white paper for hard copies of your cover letter
