Another important aspect of the cover letter is that it should be constructed in the correct sequence i.e. it should start with the details of the job seeker (name, address, email id and telephone number), followed by the date on which the cover letter is posted, then comes the details of the employer (name, designation, company's name and company's address), then the subject of the cover letter (i.e. the purpose of writing the cover letter) followed by the reference part (the source from which you came to know about the job opening). After that the body of the cover letter which highlights the professional details in a positive manner and at the end of the cover letter, put your signature followed by your name. Do remember to attach the resume with the cover letter.
