To write a transportation cover letter or any other cover letter, it is necessary that you first understand what a cover letter is, and how to write an effective one.

A cover letter is a document sent along with your resume while applying for a job. Your resume presents a summarized detail of all qualifications, skills and career experiences. This letter on the other hand makes your resume ( Transportation Manager) more relevant to a specific job application. It thus presents facts and information that would help an employer make a better decision about your candidature.

To write an effective cover letter you need to keep following points in mind.


Never make your cover letter look like your resume. It should be relevant. Relevance in terms of answering an employer's query - 'Why should I choose you or how do you suit the requirements of the job?' This means that you need to stress on the skills and qualifications that make you look like the most suitable candidate.


If you jot down the points that make you the best choice for the particular job, you can write a precise letter. Precise means To the point. This letter should be only a page long.


The language of the letter should be simple yet powerful. When you write a letter that presents you as the best applicant, you automatically write in a confident language. Another important point is 'Grammar', 'Sentence structure' and 'Spelling'. Grammatically incorrect sentences, very long sentences and incorrect spellings make your letter weak.


A cover letter should always be customized. A generic letter fails in its purpose of creating a positive impression on an employer and making him feel that you are very much interested in being part of his organization. Moreover, it should also be addressed to a specific person. Writing generalized addresses like 'To Whomsoever it may concern' or 'Dear Sir/Madam' would hamper the purpose of a letter.

The content of a letter is thus very important. Think carefully and jot down the points/skills that you think are in sync with an employer's requirements. Write a rough draft, read it thoroughly, and modify the content accordingly. After writing a final copy, proofread it twice to make sure it is free of errors.
