Writing a cover letter will help you stay ahead of the competition as 45% of the job seekers, do not write or attach a cover letter to their resume. So, writing a cover letter will give you a winning edge over the others. Now that we know about the importance of a cover letter. Let's learn how to draft one.

The first thing that goes in your cover letter is your contact details in the header. Details like your phone number, email id and address will do.

Followed by the greetings, try your best to make it personal by addressing, the hiring manager directly by their name (if you know their name), otherwise a simple 'Dear Hiring Manger' will do.

Then move on to introduce yourself, tell them what job you are applying for? From Where have you heard about this job? Who referred it to you? Why do you think you will excel at this job? etc. And remember a cover letter with a reference will get you past hundreds of applicants.

Then slowly move to narrate your career story and link it to how your capabilities will help the organisation achieve their goals. This will show that you not only have the technical ability but also the passion to work towards the holistic development of the organisation.

Make your hiring manager amaze with your achievements that are in line with the required skill set they are looking for. The achievements focus on what the company has asked for in their job description. Remember to highlight the relevant achievements only.

Do extensive research on the company and highlight how you will not only be an employee but also be an asset to the organisation, by helping them achieve their goals and improving the organisation's standards. This will help the recruiters know how passionate you are about the job.

Finally, conclude the letter by summarising your interests and suggesting the next step for proceeding with the application. Also, thank them for the valuable time they spent reviewing your application.
