When creating an application cover letter people sometimes make mistakes. It is helpful to know what pitfalls to look out for.
Writing a cover letter like this is bad:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I saw your ad form your website, and I would like to apply for the position.
Why is it bad? It contains an error that the computer spellchecker didn't catch (it should read "from" and instead of "form"). You'll look lazy or like a person with poor communication skills if you don't proofread your letter properly.
What to do about it? Easy.
Don't just spell check the resume.
Have a real person read it over. And finally, consider
