Your resume’s cover letter is an important part of your  job application.  Whether this is your first job or you have been in the game for a long time, showing off your talents and skills in the best way possible is a great way to get the attention of the hiring personnel.  This means you will need a stellar cover letter.  These tips can help you write the best cover letter to help you land that international business job.

– Be concise – It is important to highlight your skills and education and not weight down the cover letter with extransious information. Make your point and move on.

– Be personable – Do not be too generic in your cover letter. Be personable. Address the cover letter properly and do your research to ensure you are sending it to the correct individual.  Show a little of your personality in the letter without being too informal.

– Stand out – Though you don’t want to spray perfume on your cover letter or use a purple ink to sign your name, there are ways to make yourself stand out from the crowd.  One of the best ways is to show you know the job you are applying for or what a international business professional needs to know about that company.

– Follow up – Make certain you follow up any submission for a international business job with a call and/or email.  Doing so will show that you are committed, interested, and professional.

Following these simple tips for your cover letter and resume submission can help ensure you are sending a cover letter that will attract the attention of those that are hiring and hopefully have you on your way to an interview.
