For the majority of professionals, writing something longer than an email or a PowerPoint slide/deck is not a routine practice. So, here are a few tips on how to start putting together your cover letter. Each person's unique experiences in combination with each position should also be taken into consideration when putting together the cover letter. This is just a generic format for getting your first draft started:
You can do this in two main ways...
Summarize your education/certifications, any relevant coursework specific to the position. Then close it off with one or two sentences about how your experience and/or coursework is relevant to the specific position. This is also a good place (or the intro) to talk about how your personal passions align with the position if applicable.
Then add a sentence before the closing that conveys confidence and eagerness to move forward such as: "Thank you so much for considering me for the ZZZZ position at YYYY, I look forward to speaking with you soon.
