I got back from an interview and am so happy that just had to leave a nice comment for you guys. The hiring manager said I really had my stuff together. I don't think I'd have gotter the interview without the cover letter. I had a lot of trouble before, so what I learned is that its better to do it right one time than to send out weak applications to like a thousand companies. Thanks so much again :) :)

Purchase Entry Level Cover Letter

By the way, I should mention that your cover letter would be written in slightly more formal language than the conversational way I'm talking to you here. In this article, we are just chatting. I'm wanting you to know we are friendly folks here, and while you want to come across in your cover letter as friendly, you wouldn't be quite as chatty as I am being with you right now.

Okay, let's get down to business.

"What should I include in an entry level cover letter when I don't have much work experience?"

Unless you've lived a totally sheltered life, you already have a lot of experience and I'm going to explain how to work that into your cover letter (and it can also be used in your resume, but that's a somewhat different topic - and you should word things differently in your resume).

In your cover letter, the best approach is to feature the relevant experiences you've had that are outside the realm of paid work. Please note that they need to be related to the work you are applying for.

WHAT TO INCLUDE

  • Leadership experience. During high school, did you lead a junior sporting team or one side of a debate?

  • Classes you've taken outside of school. Being extra-curricular learning, they illustrate your interest in learning. And that attitude is valuable to employers.

  • Volunteer work. Did you help set up for a school play, or coach a fellow student who was struggling with algebra? Did you help with traffic on the school's open day?

  • Civic involvement. Did you manage a organize a group of volunteers doing neighborhood cleanup one weekend?

  • Summer programs. Did you spend a summer in a foreign country working to help a local community? Did you paint an old person's house?

When you include experiences like these, you are differentiating yourself from other applicants who have not done so much. It helps you to STAND OUT.

If you cannot find much to include from questions like these, I'd suggest ask your friends and family for their ideas. By the time you've lived long enough to be considering applying for employment or internship, you have done all sorts of things and gained a variety of skills, even if they are not immediately apparent to you.

Now it's time to identify them, even if they don't seem important to you. They may illustrate the kind of character and aptitudes that recruiters are looking for.

Sometimes entry level candidates for employment need to use every tool they can come up with. If that's the position you are in right now, then it's best to buckle down and "just do it".

Make the longest list you can, and then get in contact with a trained professional who can help you make the strongest case out of your unique set of skills and experiences.

If you're wrestling with this, we strongly suggest you buy an entry level cover letter online and tap into the training and experience of our professionals. They've already helped many people who felt like you feel today. It can be done!

TIPS AND WHAT TO AVOID

Our experts follow these principles when they create cover letters, but in case you want to have a shot at this yourself, here are some helpful tips to bear in mind.

  • Be clear. Your one-page cover letter needs to written in simple language.

  • Be formal. It's a business letter not a friendly chat, so write in a professional way. Don't use contractions such as "I've" (write "I have" instead).

  • Be targeted. Write a unique letter for each position you are applying for. Address the key criteria from the job ad. Tie your skills or experience directly into those criteria. At least the most important ones.

  • Reflect some of the language from the job ad. This is optional but it shows you've read and thought about the job requirements. It helps to illustrate a good "fit" between you and the company.

  • Don't rehash. A cover letter should not duplicate what's in your resume. It should complement it. The same sentence should not appear in both documents. Instead, expand on items in your resume, showing how your background is relevant to the job.

  • Don't start every sentence with "I" or "My". It sounds too self-absorbed. Employers want to hire staff who are assets to their company.

  • Don't mention the salary you want. Or the holidays.

  • Don't write negative things about past employers.

  • If there's something you don't like about the job you're applying for, keep that to yourself too.

  • Don't sound desperate.

  • Always send a cover letter, even if it's not requested. It's an extra chance to get selected for an interview. The cover letter will be the first thing the recruiting officer sees from you, so make sure it presents you well.

  • Keep a copy of every letter you send out so you know what you said to each prospective employer.

  • No spelling, grammar or punctuation errors.
