The ABC of Writing Business Letters
We often wonder whether writing business letters correctly is as important as it is made out to be. Communication, written or verbal has always been significant to civilization. The method of communication is often dictated by various factors such as who is addressing whom, why, and when. Business letters are generally used to communicate formally with various players regarding business matters. Unlike informal letters, these need to conform to certain rules so they could be read and processed speedily and at the same time provide you with the relief you are seeking. Fortunately, the basics of writing business letters are easy to master. 1. The beginning - you begin with the name, designation and address of the person you want to communicate. In case you do not know the name, the designation would often suffice, though personalization always provides better results. 2. The subject - you should keep in mind that the person who would read your letter has limited time and therefore needs to know what the letter is all about at a glance. The subject line serves to this purpose. 3. Reference - next, is your reference. This pertains to the source that influenced you to write this letter. For example, the advertisement in the newspaper if you are applying for a job; a


previous letter, a recent development, your own preceding letters and so on. 4. The opening address - you start the letter with a "Dear Sir or Madam" depending on the gender of the person. It is important that you address a woman as Ms unless she makes it obvious she wants to be addressed as mrs or miss. 5. Body of the letter - the matter you want to be said should be put in simple and crisp language, avoiding wordiness. The tone should be polite, even when the letter is a complaint or gives negative feedback. 6. Closing statement - try your best to end the letter on a point of action. This is what the person would read last and therefore carry it in his or her mind. What you want the person to do? What do you expect from him or her? What you want them to remember about the letter? 7. Ending - the letter generally ends formally with, "yours faithfully", "yours sincerely", "warm regards", or "best wishes" depending on how well you know the person you are writing to. As you can see, writing business letters is not a difficult task. All it needs is a little practice and the basic know-how.

How to Write a Cover Letter For a Resume
You have compiled all of your information together and created the perfect resume. Now all you need to go along with it is a well constructed cover letter. Make sure that you choose white or ivory colored paper to showcase everything you have to offer to your future employer. Be sure that as you go along in creating your cover letter, you keep your information simplified, and to the point. It is a must that you keep your cover letter confined to one page. Always be aware of sticking to traditional typefaces, be sure to steer away from 'cutsie' and fancy fonts. By keeping things simple you are making it easier on the employers eye. The more traditional fonts are Times, Bookman, Arial, Palatino, and Souvenir. The largest size point type for the actual body of your cover letter should be no higher than twelve points, and of course use nothing smaller than ten points. Although, your header can be larger, usually up to one or two points higher than your body type.


Try resisting the urge to play around with typefaces and styles; pick one and stay with it. You may highlight certain important elements of your cover letter with bold face type. Bold face always is darker and heavier, and leads off of the entries of the page. Don't over-do the bold face, and absolutely do not over use or get carried away with it or you will lose the effectiveness of emphasizing certain points and highlights of your cover letter. If you are using all caps and underlining, make sure this is for section heads only. If you decide to do so, use very sparingly. Researchers have proved underlining and capitalizing whole words, can slow or even stop the eye while reading. You don't want this, you want the employer to be intrigued by what you have written, not wanting to throw the cover letter immediately in the trash. It is always wise to avoid italic type. Italic is most often used in publications to focus on a word or phrase. It isn't wise to do this on your cover letter. Use generous margins, because these tend to break up the cover letter, giving it a clean, uncluttered appearance. It is important to avoid hyphens at all costs, hyphens tend to break up words, resulting in breaking up the flow. The employer's eyes will be interrupted if you use too many hyphens in the cover letter. Be sure to single space between each line, and double space between paragraphs and sections. In conclusion, the way to achieve top notch results, is to keep it simple, maintain one style and stick with it. Find the look that is right for you, and that reflects your personality without overdoing it. Sample Resumes <http://sampleresume.net> Free Resume Examples <http://www.free-resumeexample.net>
