Posted August 17, 2017 in Careers, Tips by 0

Writing a strong cover letter and resume is hard, and standing out from the crowd can be challenging. To help you out, we’ve put together a few tips on how to write a cover letter that will get you noticed by our recruiters:

  1. Start strong

Think of a creative way to introduce yourself in your cover letter that catches people’s attention. Let us know who you are and what you can bring to the team.

  1. Don’t recite your resume

Most people simply copy and paste from their resume and change up the wording, but this won’t separate you from the pack. An excellent cover letter will highlight the skills you’ve developed and provide context for the recruiter. For example, you may say “While working in a fast-paced environment at Company ABC, I was responsible for X task and developed my Y skills.”

  1. Don’t write a novel

Keep it short, sweet, and to one page. Recruiters are busy people and don’t have a lot of time to read through lengthy resumes. Be clear and concise!

  1. Why Bell?
