Tip #8: Make each paragraph count. A one-page opportunity to shine means that every word you write has to count. Use the following guidelines to help you accomplish that mission:
In paragraph one: Explain why you are writing in the first place. Be direct and succinct. This is the place, as noted in Tip #3, to connect the dots for the employer.
In paragraph two: Show the exact fit between your skills and the job in question. Don’t mince your words. Include solid examples of your experiences to further make your case. Tip #5 shows you how to do this precisely.
In paragraph three: Proactively close out your cover letter by determining the next step in the process. Thank the employer for his or her consideration, mention the date or timeframe you will follow-up, and then do it. See Tip #10 for more details.”
