Does anyone enjoy writing 求职信s? I know I always dread them when I am applying 为 a new job.

不幸的是, writing a solid 求职信 is a crucial part of the job hunt that almost no one looks 为ward to. We all know it’s difficult to convey to hiring managers and recruiters how amazing you are on a single page. It also can be challenging to 不 just regurgitate everything that’s already on your resume.

So, how do you craft a killer 求职信 that impresses potential employers? Make sure you follow these three tips to guarantee yourself an interview.

Address the 求职信 to an actual person

做一些调查. Get on LinkedIn and look up the company. Using the company’s name as the search term, you can quickly do a search 为 employees that work at the company. Keep scrolling through names until you find someone who appears to be the hiring manager.

If you are still struggling to find an appropriate person, give HR a call. They will be happy to help you properly address your letter. Introduce yourself and tell them exactly what position you are applying 为. They may even remember you when sifting through all those job applications!

By doing a little research and addressing your 求职信 to a real person within the company, it shows that you put thought into your application and that you are extremely interested in the position.

Tailor it to the job you are applying 为

You MUST customize your 求职信 to the job. If you’re 不 modifying your 求职信 to each job you apply 为, you could potentially be 把工作交给竞争对手.

You must carefully analyze the job description and use some the same verbiage from the job description. Select keywords and phrases that are essential to this position and work them into your 求职信. This is crucial if you’re submitting your 求职信 online. If you don’t have relevant keywords and phrases in your letter, your 求职信 will get filtered out from Application Tracking Systems (ATS) and your application won’t even land on the hiring manager’s desk.

注意不要做得过火, but mirroring the job description will help illustrate that you are a perfect fit 为 the position and demonstrate that you carefully read through the job ad. If a job is worth applying 为, it’s worth a customized 求职信.


This is the most important factor 为 drafting a killer 求职信. 做你自己, be honest, and don’t be afraid to show off your personality. 雇主雇佣 人, 技能. Most 技能 can be taught, but companies can不 create a genuine, passionate candidate.

This is your opportunity to show employers why you’re a great candidate. Demonstrate your passion 为 the role and tell a good story. Stories help bring your background to life and allows your personality to shine through the letter.

If you are bored writing the 求职信, then the hiring manager will likely be bored reading it. Your writing reflects who you truly are. 不要害怕创新! Just make sure you keep it professional.
