What Should Write On A Cover Letter?

Here I'm introducing myself as a Freelancer Help person. I'm working different freelance marketplace as a Graphic Designer and Flash Animator since 2009. I registered my account as a freelancer in February 2009 and started bidding on different projects which of them matched with my skill.

But unfortunately I was not getting any job. I asked from experienced freelancer to help me. They gave me some tips. I tried to apply those tips but it was not working. I was frustrated.

On May 11, 2009 I saw a project "animation of logo d-s-c.ch" in odesk.com. It was a logo animation project.

I read the job description properly and I thought I can do the job according to the clients requirements. So I wished to apply on the project. Now I need a cover letter to apply the job. I decided to write the cover letter something different. And it worked. I was so exited. It was my first freelancing jobs. Finally I completed the project successfully and got very good feedback from my client.

Today I'll share how to write an amazing cover letter.

Body of Cover Letter:
The body of your cover letter lets the employer know what position you are applying for, why the employer should select you for an interview, and how you will follow-up.

Middle Paragraph:
The next section of your cover letter should describe what you have to offer the employer. Mention specifically how your qualifications match the job you are applying for. Ask some questions if you have related to the project. So that client understand that you read job description.

Final Paragraph:
Conclude your cover letter by thanking the employer for considering you for the position.

Complimentary Close:
Best Regards,
Mohammad Solaiman

[Important: Never write your contact information on cover letter.]

I hope it will help you to get more projects.
Best of luck.
