Opening: Your Federal Government Is Recruiting Secretly Apply Now! / 9 Words/phrases That Will Ruin Your Cover Letter / “your Cv Should Inform. Your Cover Letter Should Persuade.” Here Is The Reason (2) (3) (4)
|Please, Stop Opening Your Cover Letters With This Sentence! by NoContract(m): 6:40am On Dec 11, 2018|
Please stop opening your cover letters with this sentence and all variations of it:
“I’m applying for this position because I’m the best candidate for the job.”
No, you’re not. The best candidate has the sense to know that she has no idea what the rest of the candidate pool looks like.
This is a bad statement because you have no way of knowing that so it sounds silly/naive/hyperbolic — and plus, pretty much every time I’ve seen someone write this, it hasn’t been accurate. It can even be a strike against you, because if you’re a decent candidate but not perfect, now I have to worry that you don’t have a good sense of the job or of your own strengths and weaknesses.
Somewhere along the way, someone told you to be confident and sell yourself in the job application process. But that means showing me what makes you the best candidate, not just telling me and expecting me to believe it. If you’re the best, your accomplishments are what will make that clear.
