CLEAR SUMMARY

How to use this Cover Letter Builder

Start at the 'Contact Details' tab on the left and work you way across to the 'Closer' Tab on the right.

Just fill out the contact details that you need and copy and paste them into the textarea on the right as you need them. Take a look at the example cover letter in the 'Example' Tab. I have made this builder so that when you click into a text box it selects the text within that text box. Then just use (Control + C) to copy your selection and (Control + v) to paste your selection into the text box on the right. Just look at the picture below.


Details Tab

When you have all the details complete just select the text and copy and paste it into the textarea in the 'Cover Letter' tab.


Cover Letter Tab

Also, if you click on the label to the right of the 'Company Name', 'Position Title' and 'Advertised on' fields on the bottom of the following tabs will be pre-filled with the corresponding details 'Subject', 'Opener', 'Body'


Details Tab


Details text boxes

Once you have finished the 'Contact Details' tab move along to the next one. Keep moving along the tabs to the right until your cover letter is complete. The 'Gaps' tab and 'Availability' tab are optional.

When you open a Tab press the text input buttons and different text/paragraps will be displayed in the textarea. In the example below the 'Subject 01' button has been clicked and the corresponding text has appeared in the textarea. Now just edit the text in the [] square brackets, and any other text you wish to edit. Once edited just select the text and copy and paste it into the cover letter in the'Cover Letter' tab textarea.


Details text boxes

Click on the 'Clear' Button underneath each textarea to clear it.



Changing Fonts and Font Sizes

You can make your cover letters in either Arial or Times fonts with 10pt to 13pt sizes.

Use the buttons provided in the 'Cover Letter' tab. The default font is Arial and the default size is 11pt. If you need to use another font you can just paste your cover letter into and office program and do it that way.

Saving Cover Letters

There are three ways that you can save your cover letter:

  1. Save it into a word type document/PDF file with an office program.
  2. Save it to PDF with the provided buttons.
  3. Save it to PDF with the same header that you used on your single page resume.

Saving your cover letter with an office program

To save your cover letter into an office program just copy your cover letter text into your office program.

You can also copy it into a website like SEEK, just copy it into the textarea provided and it should retain the correct formatting.

Save to PDF



Saving to PDF with your Resume Header

To save your cover letter to a PDF with the same header as your single page resume just copy your cover letter and paste it into the textarea on the 'Cover Letter' tab on the 'Resume Builder' page. It might be worth opening the resume builder page in a second window.

Once you have pasted your cover letter into the textarea delete your name, address phone number and email address. Then go to the 'Personal Details' tab and fill them in there so that they appear in the header the same as your resume. Then use the appropriate buttons to choose the resume/font style for your PDF file.
