Look at some samples online. Basically your cover letter should cover why you, what your skills and experience are, why Tiger and why this job and what you will bring to it.

A short paragraph - 1-2 sentences on why you want to do this sort of of work - usually some combination of your experience and interests.

A short paragraph - 1-2 sentences about why this organisation - usually because you like/value their products/service

A longer paragraph, that highlights your three most relevant skills for the job, expanding on what you've said in your CV.

Close by confirming you have anything they might say is mandatory (over 18, driver, able to speak Mandarin etc)

1) Start powerfully

If you are starting it like:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for job openings for freshers with respect to your walk in interview jobs
Then it will appear like this

Dear Whomsoever,

I am well aware that I need to submit a cover letter so here it is. I don’t know whether I am OK for this job but please consider me too. I will study about the field once I am shortlisted for the interview.

Don’t be so lazy in writing thereby making the reader bored. Make it short and sweet and at the same time express yourself in a confident, and charismatic way.

2) Echo the job description
Hiring managers are very keen in selecting the candidates and they don’t provide detailed job description always. Express the same language of the advertisement and is good to show the skills as it will show the experience aligned with the role at hand. So if your earlier job description had copy writing in it and the new job includes blogging then mention it as blogging.

3) Don’t change your originality

People are more preferred and selected than their skills. If you provide a friendly and conversational cover letter then it will reveal that you are not a robot. This will show that you are an awesome person to work with and not some mechanical machine but a creative human being.

4) Make them wanting to meet yourself

Write a cover letter in such a way that they will want you to meet them. Express your passion without using the passion. For example: I am really good at data entry and have good professional experience with it rather than I am passionate about data entry jobs.

Sandeshbukate, please can you be more aware that CV conventions vary greatly from country to country. You, and the website you keep linking to, seem to be based in India and TSR is a mainly UK forum. Much of your advice is completely incorrect for the UK market.

Well many employers require cover letters as part of the job application process. However, even when an employer does not explicitly ask for a cover letter, you should send one. A strong cover letter can make your application stand out from the crowd. Review these tips for writing and sending a cover letter. Then, use the cover letter sample below as a guide for when you write your own cover letter.

Doesn't really make any difference what name you use, your website is still just repeating generalist mantras that often aren't appropriate to anything but the Indian job market.
