When talking about a paper cover letter, things like line spacing and address conventions come into play. However, while you are sending a cover letter online, which is not to be printed, the date would be enough to write. Do not forget to mention the address at the top around 1 inch down from the page top. While writing the date, make sure you skip at least 4 lines. Now skip another 4 lines and enter the Contact Person, then the name and address of the company. Write to a specific person.
The body of the paragraph should be from three to four paragraphs. The first paragraph should include information about the reason as to why you are writing this letter. One thing which is to be avoided in the opening is “I wish to apply for the position of ___ advertised in ___”. Your opening should be designed in such a way that makes the reader sit up and concentrate on your letter. Also, you must make it clear as to how did you come to know about the position. Your qualifications are to be mentioned in the second paragraph and the last paragraph, which should be around three to four lines and should include some information that makes the employer take a decision and act.
The last very important thing which is to be done by you is proofreading. Check for correct spellings and grammatical speaking. Try and avoid informal language because it is very important for you to sound as a professional, objective-oriented and educated. Moreover, your tone has to be professional and informative. It is very important for you to sell your skills in a very positive manner. Check for the punctuation marks properly.
