How To: Guide for creating amazing Cover Letters

Many debate the importance of cover letters, some organizations ask for it, and some don’t find it necessary. However, it’s better to always be prepared. In general, writing any sort of letter isn’t that simple for many – and when it comes to a point where your letter could have a large impact on whether you get the job of your desire – the pressure is just too much.

Not with Hashboard. It’s fast, easy and often magical.

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll find cover letters on the right most. There are two options you’re presented with here:

  1. Use the default letters: They’re pretty good. We’ve made sure they maintain a certain standard and are filled with #tags to make sure you can use them for any job in any field.
  2. Create your own letters: An option most would prefer. Create as many letters as you desire and manage them easily. The biggest advantage? Use #tags to re-use letters for different organizations.
