Not sure how to go out sending your cover letter to employers? There are some critical things you should keep in mind.
1. PDF IT
ALWAYS send as a PDF so your formatting doesn’t get screwed up, unless you’re instructed differently by the employer.
Why? Because your attachments can be sent to multiple people within the company and you don’t want your amazing cover letter to get lost at the bottom of an email chain.
Proofread like six times. If you think you’ve proofread it enough, do it once more.
This is one of your first impressions. Make it a good one! Don’t let typos or grammatical errors hurt your brand.
3. Leave out the email address until the last minute.
Don’t put the email in until you’re 100% sure your message is perfect. Don’t want any accidents!
