A cover letter checklist addresses the letter to the person managing the posting (not, To Whom it May Concern,). Make sure to use jargon-free language that prevents run-on sentences and clichés. Include only the most relevant information in your cover letter, usually one page or less.

What should be included in a cover letter checklist?

Key elements for writing a strong cover letter are:
  1. Detailed information about you.
  2. The date.
  3. Name, title, address, and employer of the contact person.
  4. The salutation.
  5. The opening paragraph.
  6. Next is the middle paragraph.
  7. There is also a need for a second middle paragraph.
  8. Contact information and a closing paragraph.

Below is a sample sentence that can be found in this file:
