When submitting a resume to a recruitment agency, some agencies require a cover letter along with it while some do not. Writing a cover letter is really a tricky task especially when you must stand out from all other applicants. Even if your resume is eye-catching but still, a cover letter is another challenge to be accomplished. Keep reading for the guidelines. 

What do you write in an email to a recruitment agency?

Major techniques to write an eye-catching cover letter are written below by our experts. Follow these techniques for the best outcome.:

  1. Firstly, your resume contains all the qualifications which you have secured up till now. But all your relevant experiences and accomplishments in detail. In the cover letter, you must write about your attainments in such a way that you stand out at the top among all the applications in the job. In this context, we will guide you in the best possible way so that it becomes easy for you to write. 
  2. Stay concise: When writing a cover letter to a recruitment company, staying concise and compact is the key. Do not go into the explanations and details as this reduces the impact of a cover letter. stick to the point and never go into depth. We recommend this because recruiters are busy people and such detailed over written cover letters really do not seem appealing to them and because of this, your application might get rejected. That is why staying compact and brief is highly recommended. 
  3. Prefer writing in bullets and short paragraphs since the lengthier your paragraph, the lesser you get the chance to be stacked on top of all the competent applications. Writing about your vast skills and achievements relevant to the job may really attract the recruiter. 
  4. While for the formatting of a cover letter, make sure you include your contact information. Apart from that, write about what you really are seeking and how is this job best suitable for your needs and commands. Must include your revenue expectations. Other than that, write about the side tasks which you can offer depending upon your situation for example traveling to various cities or maybe abroad.
  5. Mention that when will you be available for the interview in case the company wants to conduct it. Do not force anything and leave everything else for the best of you.
  6. Always call the recruiter and speak in person. Some people say, if you did not call the hiring company, you didn't apply for a job at all.
