The cover letter above is completed--so let's look at some of the steps
to help you create yours to look really clean and professionally

to include your full name, your most current address, a telephone
number, and an active email address. More guidelines you should be
Your name needs be in a bold 14- or 16-point font whichever looks best
Your contact information needs to be a normal type 12-point font.
This area of your cover letter doesn't need to be Arial font or Times
New Roman font, but it needs a very professional look, and also needs
to be readable at a glance. All of this information needs to be up to
date so the employer can contact you.
Now you should write your recipient’s full name and their address below
your letterhead. To make it look more professional, you should add 2
blank lines underneath.
After you are done here you need to use 12-point Times New
Roman throughout the rest of the entire letter, also your paper margins
should be set to one inch, and make sure to use single line spacing.
Use black font, and if you will be printing your new cover letter, use
the standard-sized paper (8 1/2” by 11”). You can also go to your
nearest office supply store to get some nice professional looking
stationary to print on.

name, and include the correct title (Mr., Mrs., Dr., etc.). So if you
really can't find out who your recipient is, then you will need to
write, “To Whom It May Concern:” or you could possibly use “Dear Sir or
Madam”; however, you should always call to find out the real name of
the person from the secretary or whoever you can talk to when you call.

is! What was the business like in the beginning as compared to
now? How has the company been performing in the past compared to now

your cover letter by thanking the person for their time.
Also by making sure they know you will accommodate their schedule if
called in for an interview. The main information you want to convey, is
that you are looking forward to hearing from them as you are excited
about this opportunity.
Sincerely or Regards are good friendly closing statements.

and your name. So leave about 4 spaces in between these to leave you
some room for your freehand signature!!
