1. Attaching the cover letter to the e-mail
Copy and paste the cover letter into the body of the e-mail.
2. Writing your whole life story in the body of the e-mail
Keep your cover letter short.
3. Providing information that is not relevant to the position
Give the hiring manager a brief overview of the most relevant experience you have, appropriate to the position they are trying to fill.
4. Excluding information they’ve specifically asked you to include
Following instructions and acknowledging everything the employer has asked you to address in the job ad makes you look responsible.
5. Forgetting to tell them why you’re the best fit
Take the time to specifically and meticulously review the job requirements. Then provide detailed information in your cover letter mentioning how your job experiences
meet those needs.
6. Using a boring closing statement
Instead of using the same old boring line, write something interesting to catch the hiring manager's attention.
