I need help with cover letters

So the title is pretty self-explanatory. I suffer from bad cover letter writing skills. It’s never been something I’ve been very good at but need to get better at.

What’s an article/video/ book/talk/podcast/advice that you’d recommend for someone trying to get better at this? The generic results on the web have been no help so I hope that maybe having design talk over it would prove better.

I’m currently starting the book Propaganda by Edward Bernays but haven’t gotten very far yet. Has anyone read that and if so what are your thoughts?

Well, I have not read the book you mentioned. Sorry to say that.

Anyway, as for writing a good cover letter, I always make it a point to make the receiver the center of attention in the letter. Make sure that the information you use are up-to-date and correct. Lastly, make them want you by telling them what they need to hear from you.

Hoping these tips would help!

Just make sure that when you’re telling me what I need to hear, that you are telling the truth. Been doing this too long. The truth always happens in the interview whether you mean it to or not.
