You stayed up all night and wrote your cover letter. You have edited and re-edited it to fit into a page. You have also adhered to all the rules and tips you have seen on the various websites. But do you still feel doubtful, if you did a good job in writing your cover letter? Don't worry. We have carefully compiled a list of things that add the best finishing touches to your cover letter.

 1. Address properly

While drafting your cover letter, refrain from using the "To Whom It May Concern” greeting and do some research to find out who will be reading your cover letter.

Some companies are super helpful and let you know whom you are addressing in the cover letter almost immediately. Or you could always get their name from social media sources like LinkedIn etc. And in case you do not find their name, then please send them a mail-in kind word asking them, if it is a person or a panel of members who would be reading your cover letter.

2. Hyperlinks

When you are using hyperlinks in your cover letter. Make sure you have these in your mind. Never include more than two or three hyperlinks in your cover letter (like an online portfolio or personal website). Make sure that your links are relevant, the hyperlink must not be a dumping ground for all that you have created so far. 

Try to include the context behind the hyperlink, in order to attract the hiring manager's attention and make them realize it's worth clicking. For example, if you’re referencing a recent design project you did, add that said project can be found “in my online portfolio” and add a hyperlink. 

3. Delete extra images, clip art, emoticons and emojis 

Regardless of how friendly the company can be you never use emoticons, clip art, emojis or any other cute pictures. This will put you out as an incapable candidate and there are high chances of losing the job. 

You can use an emoji in your cover letter only when you are SUPER confident that it is relevant to the context and the company will accept it too. Otherwise, please stay away.
