Most job applications give you the opportunity to send a cover letter alongside your resume.

Good cover letters take a considerable amount of time, thought, and effort to write. All of which could be greatly minimized with one feature. Rather than writing one yourself from scratch, it can now be written itself by using some key information. 

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to build a tailored cover letter using our AI cover letter generator.

What Are the Best Things to Highlight On Your Cover Letter?

The best things to highlight on your cover letter are your most relevant strengths to the job duties and responsibilities. These should imply to your hiring managers that you’re a good fit for the role.

Here are a few examples of things to highlight:

  • Accomplishments
  • Education
  • Skills
  • Work experience

If you’re a student or graduate, then it’s worth focusing on your academic background since you likely won’t have much work experience. On the other hand, those with more than 2 years of experience could focus on their employment background and workplace achievements. 

The only rule is to not repeat what you’ve already mentioned in your resume. Unless you’re adding in new information, don’t write about the same things over and over. 

Which AI-Generated Cover Letter Version Is the Best? 

It depends – which one do you find most suited to your needs? 

This comes down to your professional judgment in deciding whether or not the cover letter best represents your ability and character as a worker. Look at the job description and think about your own skill set. 

If you’re not satisfied with the results, you can keep using the feature until it generates something you’re happy with. 

How Many Times Can You Use the AI Cover Letter Generator?

As long as you have enough AI writer credits, you can use the feature as many times as you’d like. Just remember that once you press the AI writer generate button, the previous draft won’t be saved. 

The Best Practices for Using the AI Cover Letter Generator 

Editing and Proofreading

Using the cover letters that have been generated, see which ones you like the most and edit accordingly to suit your needs. It’s good practice to edit and proofread what’s been written to customize the job application as your own.

Personalize It

Your cover letter isn’t generated randomly. It uses the information from what you’ve mentioned in your resume and the short form you filled out. Aside from solely relying on this, think about the expectations of your employers. 

Ask yourself, how are you the best person for the job? What do they want to see from you? There may be subtle details that could be included for further personalization. 

Save It 

It’s worth saving each draft the AI cover letter feature generates. 

Although you might not be entirely satisfied with what’s been written, use them as references for certain sections in your application. Or even use them as inspiration for the future cover letters you work on. 

Using An AI Cover Letter Generator VS Writing From Scratch 

Let’s briefly look at the benefits you stand to gain from using the AI writer compared to writing from scratch. 

Using an AI writer:

  • Skip the outline and drafting process by getting straight into editing
  • No more constant back and forth research or page hopping
  • Make the writing part easy by getting instant inspiration
  • Save time and get more applications sent with minimal effort

Writing from scratch:

  • Start with an outline or draft before editing and refining your application
  • Constantly refer to the job description page to ensure it’s tailored 
  • Search up multiple resume examples online to draw inspiration from other candidates
  • Generally takes more time and effort, which can be draining and result in fewer applications sent 

The Advantages of Sending a Good Cover Letter 

It Shows Your Enthusiasm 

Cover letters aren’t usually essential. But your employers will see the effort you’re putting into your job application. This can indicate your passion and work ethic, which are differentiating factors that set you apart from other applicants. 

You Get to Explain Why You’re a Good Fit 

Resumes give the company an overview of your professional background. It’s like a report summarizing your career history and highlights. 

Whereas, a cover letter gives you the chance to explain yourself as a professional. In other words, it allows you to talk more about why you’re the right person for the role. This extra room for information could be used to your advantage.  

Let Employers See Your Personality 

Another aspect recruiters look at is if a candidate is a good cultural fit for the organization. This means aligning with the company’s mission and values. Those who are a good cultural fit are likely to adapt better to the work environment and be more productive.

It’s harder for employers to get insight into your personality in a resume compared to cover letters. But, keep it professional otherwise you’re making a common writing mistake

Structuring Your Cover Letter

Here’s the general structure of a cover letter:

  • Header
  • Opening paragraph
  • Main body
  • Closing paragraph
  • Signoff

All cover letters should be no further than one-page long. Half a page is also more than enough.

What About Letters of Interest? 

Letters of interest are similar to cover letters. 

The difference is that they’re usually for job positions that aren’t being advertised. So, you’re letting the company know you’re keen to work in a specific role for them if there's an opportunity for it.
