A cover letter is very important for any job seekers. A cover letter is created first impression on the employer.

People are also not aware of the importance of cover letter. In this article, I will guide you what is a cover letter and how to write a perfect cover letter for any job opening. I will target this cover letter for the target employer of Dubai to find jobs in Dubai.

What is cover letter?

A cover letter is a letter that is written by the job seekers to a potential employer. In this piece of letter, job seeker introduces themselves in front of the employer. The cover letter contains brief information in which job seeker tells the employer intent of writing, brief skills, and experience.

One cover letter does not fit on all jobs opening. I saw here in Dubai that there is thousands of jobs are available. The trend of applying for jobs in Dubai is to send CV online. People send their CV or resume without a cover letter or if they send their cv or resume with the cover letter they use only one template for all job opening. To create a good impression on employer cover letter should be designed according to job designation.

What should be included in perfect cover letter?

The length of the cover letter.

The cover letter should not be more than 1 page. Ensure that your cover letter is written under 1 page. The ideal cover letter contains 250 words. But it can be increased according to requirement but should never increase the length more than 1 page.

Match the skills.

The most important point of the cover letter is the identification of employer skills and needs. Once you identified the employers need then match your skills and experience according to that skills and experience. Write a cover letter in such a way that it becomes appealing to employers.

Tailor your cover letter according to job:

Do not send each cover letter for every job. Remember one size does not fit all. Tailor your CV according to each job. The ideal situation is written something about the organization for which you are for. It shows to the employer that you have done good research on the organization.

Writing style of cover letter:

Always write a cover letter in such a way that look professional and mature. Never write long sentences or paragraph and jorgans it looks non-professional. Write in such a way that shows your confidence.

Logical sequence:

Always write your cover letter in a logical sequence. There should be a proper and professional flow in your whole cover letter.

What should be the layout of cover letter?

Cover letter layout should be professional. I will tell you what content and layout you have to use in your cover letter.

Introductory Paragraph:

The cover letter should always start with an introductory paragraph. In this paragraph write briefly why you are writing a cover letter. Tell employer from where you got the information of this post. Establish a point of contact. (Write about the website name where you got information or person name or place name where you got information). You should write about who you are. For example, if you are an ACA don’t write accountant but write an accounts and finance professional. Also write briefly about yourself.

Main paragraph.

This paragraph should be more attractive because this paragraph will lead your employer to call you for an interview.

In this paragraph tell something about your resume content. Not all content should be told. Only the feature that is silent on your resume or that point that matches with job description should be highlighted.

Here is the point where you match your skills and experience with employer organization and job description.

Maintain the reader’s interest through a paragraph.

Your cover letter should be extra information not just rephrasing the CV.

Closing paragraph:

The closing paragraph of a cover letter about requests. Policy ends up your cover letter by requesting for interview request at employer convenience. Tell the employer that you can send more information on demand. Tell them what you can send in the supplement. In this closing paragraph, you have to thank your employer.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
