This article will be on how to write a successful Cover Letter and what format should be used when writing the letter.
At the start of the cover letter, put down your name, contact number, email, address, Social Media, and portfolio links.
As for your paragraphs, there should first be an introduction between 150 to 250 words. The middle sections should first be your work experience, between 350 to 450 words.
If you don’t have work experience, talk about the work you have done outside of work or your relevant education that matches the role.
Beawhere that in the UK In 2017, 45.7 percent of British aged 25 to 64 attained some form of post-secondary education.
22.6% of British people aged 25 to 64 earned a bachelor’s degree or higher.
52% of British people aged 25 to 34 attained some form of tertiary education, about 4% above the OECD average of 44%.
The expansion of people earning bachelor’s Degrees and Professional Development is making job marketing even more and more competitive, so you will need experience that you can get doing volunteer work or Internships.
The following two paragraphs are both between 350 to 450 words.
These paragraphs will first be on your education and then your hobbies that are relevant to the position or just information that can humanize you in your CV, like do you have a podcast, are part of any clubs, or writing your blog.

Your Linkedin and other Social Media if relevant to the position that you are applying for

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am interested in the position of Book Seller Working for Waterson’s Book Store in Leeds.
I have the necessary experience to fill the job role requirements, having worked as a writer and done communications in the past.
My work experience primarily involves face-to-face sales and digital marketing using my copywriting and other writing skills to communicate and convince customers to buy products.
My past work experience relevant to the position is my time at Pearl Lemon Marketing Agency, where I work as a content writer for three months, Intern copywriter for a Successful Mindset, and my time as a News Writer at Pigeon Week.
I have achieved from these writing positions the knowledge of Digital Marketing, Copywriting, and persuasive writing that most readers have the reading capabilities of a 12 or 13 years old. Depending on the target audience, the writing needs to match the readers’ reading ability and needs.
I also have experience using social media during my time as an Oriflame Brand Partner. I used Facebook for 12 months to generate revenue, and during my time at successful mindset, writing posts for LinkedIn to expand the organization’s brand.
I also have face-to-face sales experience with over eight years working on Market Stalls, 12 months doing customer services at the NHS Test & Trace program, and four months at Lloyds banking group doing customer service executions.
This shows that I have a lot of experience talking to customers and people face to face, which I have also done in a cold calling environment and doing door to door sales and market research to get information from people’s properties.
My highest educational attainment is my Bachelor’s Degree in Politics and International Relations, with me graduating in 2018, and a professional diploma level VII in digital marketing, which I completed in 2021.
I also did other professional courses in Copywriting, Digital Marketing, and UX Design. I achieved from these experiences knowledge of psychology, what motivates people to buy products, and why people behave the way they do because digital marketing and writing require an understanding of human psychology.
This is relevant to the position because understanding his introductory psychology helps someone become a better communicator and avoid being manipulated.
Overall, I would be an excellent fit for the position because the positions I have had in the past in different writing positions and communication roles and my knowledge of psychology are transferable skills that I will use as a Book Seller.
I would also like to add that I have a personal interest in books because, at home, I own three large books shelves myself and one small bookshelf full of different books.
