How to write a cover letter?

First you need to pick a cover letter template to match your resume. Then, it's time for the writing.

Here's how you write a cover letter:

  • At the start of your cover letter, you should have a title, a header with your contact information, the company's contact information, and include a polite greeting.
  • In the body of the cover letter, write about your professional skills, past experiences, and hopes and aspirations for your professional future.
  • At the end of a cover letter, emphasize your motivation and repeat, why are you the right person for the job. Thank the hiring manager for their time and express your high hope for hearing back from them. Mention your resume and remember to sign the letter with your full official name.

Which cover letter template should I use?

Most importantly, you should use one that matches your resume. However, the majority of our cover letter templates are pretty universal and you can't go wrong with any of them.

While in creative industries (eg. fashion, social media) candidates should aim for a cover letter that catches the eye, more traditional industries (eg. finance, law) may prefer a more conservative template.

Here are examples of cover letter templates for any occasion:

  • Creative: Pipeline, Bubbles, Hoth
  • Regular: White, Minimalistic, Europe
  • Conservative: Ios, Black, Reed
How to format a cover letter?

Well, your cover letter should match your resume formatting. This means using the same font, size, margins, spacing, etc. An easy and hassle-free way to achieve this is to use a matching cover letter and resume template.

Here's how to format your cover letter:

  • Font. Use one of the classics: Calibri, or Arial, or match it to your resume font.
  • Size. Keep the size between 10–12 points and match it to your resume.
  • Spacing. Single-space your text, make sure there's a space between each paragraph, and leave a space between the concluding paragraph and your formal sign-off.
  • Margins. The only rule here is that the margins on your cover letter should match those on your CV.
  • Consistence with your CV. Kickresume lets you choose a matching template for your CV and your cover letter, so no need to worry about this.

Both Kickresume's cover letter templates and resume templates are designed by expert typographers to ensure optimal readability & formatting, a visually-appealing design, and an optimization for ATS software. No matter which template you pick.

Do I need a new cover letter for every job?

Yes, you need a new and unique cover letter for every joy you apply to. Why? Because your cover letter needs to be tailored specifically to the position and company. This means you can't reuse an old cover letter completely. Neither should you use a generic cover letter to apply for all jobs.

You can, however, use Kickresume's AI Cover Letter Writer to write a good cover letter foundation for your specific job and then tweak some parts to make it uniquely yours and to fit the job description well.

If not sure how to write one, check our expert cover letter guide and learn how to create a great cover letter.

What is a cover letter template?

A cover letter template helps you with the layout and formatting of your document to save your time. Cover letter templates also show you what elements you need to include in your letter, such as a header, contact information, and the body paragraph.

Kickresume's cover letter templates include all of the necessary elements which you then only need to fill in and populate. Plus, to save even more time, you can use Kickresume's AI Cover Letter Writer to write a good cover letter foundation for your specific job and then only tweak some parts to make it uniquely yours.

And, no need to worry about formatting, this is all taken care of by our expert typographers who carefully designed each template.
