𝟭. 𝗔𝗱𝗱𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗮 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻, 𝗶𝗳 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲.
This will make it seem more personal and less like an email that went out to everyone who applied for the job.
𝟮. 𝗙𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗷𝗼𝗯 𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗿𝗲𝘀
The first thing you should do is find out what the job entails so that you can tailor your cover letter to the position. If you don't know what skills or qualifications are required for the job, ask someone who works there!

But if you follow our advice and tips above, we think you'll find the process a bit easier and perhaps even more enjoyable. In the end, maintain perspective.
