Draft a Cover Letter


checkmark Get to the point right away. Say who you are, what you teach, and when you want to start. Include your webpage link, e.g. “Click to view my photo, resume and references: http://joyjobs.com/cvs/bakersample.htm

checkmark Don’t waste time explaining how you found out about the job. You don't gain any points by doing so and you slow down the recruiter.

checkmark Respect the recruiter's time. Large blocks of text require time and effort to digest. Don't lay big claims on the recruiter's patience.

checkmark Use the school’s verbiage. Customize the cover letter to mimic the job description. Make it easy for the recruiter to understand that you are a match for the position.

checkmark Don't beat about the bush. Call for action: ask for an interview, inquire about the next step, request information, and so on. The absolutely worst situation is when a candidate sends four long paragraphs of turgid text followed by “Thoughts?

checkmark Eliminate unnecessary attachments. The only legitimate attachment is your CV (resume) which should include your photo. Unless explicitly requested, don't send any degrees, certificates, transcripts, IDs or letters of reference.

checkmarkWhen sending attachments, give them descriptive names:

Even before a recruiter opens your CV, they’ll see the name of the file. You want to look good from the very start. Distinguish yourself from the pile of nameless documents. Use your name and specify what the file is about.

To give you an idea, here are some bad samples:

Recruiters go through hundreds of applications. Generic names are indistinguishable and sloppy: My new resume fixd.pdf cross

Your file must be identifiable and self-explanatory by its name. Attention to the detail is always a welcome touch:

“Let me thank you for the webpage. Can you believe it, since posting it and sending it out to employers, I presently have five or six schools looking at me. I have never had such excitement generated around me in such a way before.

I had two glowing interviews and the last school, a university in Daqing, signed me up on the spot!  THANK YOU! I've just singed a 12-month contract and things are moving ahead
