Email Cover Letter

Email cover letter advice courtesy of Resume Scorecard. In this article you will get tips for writing a good email cover letter.

Email cover letter format tips:

Often when people write emails they write in a very casual and informal style but when emailing the employer you should write in a professional manner.

Often email cover letters are short letters with only a couple lines of texts that simply say something long the lines of 'I'm applying for x position, find my resume attached, thanks very much." This is a waste of a good opportunity! You really should take the time to write a full cover letter every time.

Use left-justified and four-inch wide text lines. You don't know how large the viewer's monitor is and don't want tje e-mail to wrap the text around in an awkward way. Some the viewer's email will not displat specail text like bolding, bulleting or underlining, so play it safe by using capital letters of dashes when you wish to add emphasis.
