Cover letters are an essential part of any successful job search strategy, so it’s important that yours is up to par.

If you’re considering applying to a job without sending a cover letter, you might want to rethink. A cover letter is a way to show an employer that you have the passion, value, and expertise they are looking for. Not sending one might make it look like you’re not that serious about the position. In fact, a well written cover letter, especially one that uses our disruptive technique, can be the difference between getting an interview and being ghosted by the employer.

Cover letters also allow you to share your connection story, or the personal connection you have to an employer. These stories catch the eye of recruiters and make them want to learn more about you. Who wouldn’t want that?

Additionally, a cover letter is the first place to address any potential questions or concerns an employer might have about you as a candidate. Usually, this means explaining employment gaps, lack of specialized training, or frequent job hopping on your resume. Alleviating these concerns from the start will also give you a leg up in the hiring process.

Now that you know the importance and power of a cover letter, it’s time to address some common mistakes job seekers make when writing their own. Employers are keeping an eye out for these red flags, and having one on your cover letter could work against you.

Here’s what to look out for in your cover letter, so it works in your favor and helps you land your next job!

Simple Hacks From Work It DAILY Can Give You Amazing Results

“I found Work It Daily through J.T.'s TikTok account. I was inspired by her explanation of a disruptive cover letter – after hearing about it, I thought – duh... why did I not think of this before, especially with my background in communication and marketing. I signed up for the free trial last week so I could access the guide for the cover letter, applied the suggested techniques, and just yesterday I received a job offer from one of my dream companies. I had some connections at the company and have been working hard to build experience, but one simple hack from Work It Daily has helped me show that I'm a great fit amidst other fantastic candidates. Thank you!”
