How to write a stand out cover letter for the mines

People often dismiss cover letters and won’t put in the time or effort to provide one and attach it to their resumes. Big mistake! It’s not a waste of paper that no one will read and it’s not your chance to repeat your resume, generally it’s not actually about you! It’s an opportunity to show employers your interest in the position and demonstrate your knowledge and enthusiasm about the company; the more genuine interest you display in the position/company the more believable you are as a candidate. After all, once you’re hired, you are a representation of their company.

Keep the cover letter brief and informative; demonstrate your skills, experience and sustainability for jobs of a similar type to convince recruiters that interviewing you wont be a waste of time. It’s always a good idea to think about what recruiters are looking for, put yourself in their shoes for a moment and think about how many applications they sort through and what will make your application stand out from the others. By keeping your cover letter brief and informative you have the full attention of recruiters, so use your time wisely! Express your interest and eagerness for the position and provide examples that clearly demonstrate your skills; this will show recruiters your enthusiastic about the field you’re applying in.

Your cover letter is also a great place to include information that couldn’t be added to your resume such as your commitment to relocating, drug and alcohol tests, your flexibility with hours/shifts and your readiness to start with the position. Recruiters want to see that you’re willing to commit to the position and by presenting this in your cover letter, there’s a better chance your resume will be given the time it deserves.

To avoid recruiters losing interest and becoming confused or overwhelmed with too much information, keep your cover letter structured and organized in a way that engages the reader. Start off with an introduction that expresses your eagerness and interest in the position whilst also demonstrating your knowledge about the position and company. Keep relevant information grouped together, such as your qualifications in one section and your achievements and experience in another, this avoids information being scattered across the page leaving recruiters confused and disinterested with your application.

Try not to lose focus on the task at hand, keep the information you provide in alignment with the job requirements; your resume might have all the bells and whistles, qualifications and experience, but if you cant lure recruiters in with your cover letter your application is pointless. This is the first point of contact with your future employment, don’t be modest about your experience or your passion and enthusiasm, this is what will attract employers to your resume.
