Most probably you have read various tips & tricks on how to write the best cover letter – the one that will open the door to your success. Most of these tips & tricks are for sure useful, but some of them could be rather harmful to your application because the might be too standard, and your cover letter may not be an outstanding one.
Advice #2 – The Length
The perfect length is 3/4 of a page up to 1 page. If it is more, it becomes too long and honestly people who will read it in most cases won’t have the desire or the extra time to read a “novel” and your cover letter won’t get the needed attention. What about a shorter version of your cover letter in case you can’t think of anything else that will be a plus to your application if added? Of course, it is better to avoid writing nonsense just to add up some more lines to your cover letter; however, keep in mind that your cover letter should not be shorter than a half page, otherwise, it looks like a short notice or a sticky note, and again it won’t fulfil its purpose.
