对于求职者来说，一份好的简历如同叩开外企大门的“敲门砖”，其重要性不言而喻。但是，仅凭简历就想获得面试机会也并非易事，因为简历通常只是列表式地罗列求职者的相关信息，内容常常显得单薄或缺乏生气，不够吸引人。为了弥补简历的这一不足之处，求职者可以在投递简历的同时，附上一封声情并茂的cover letter (求职信)，这样不仅能增强求职者的竞争力，还能显示出求职者应聘的诚意与认真的态度。本期笔者就具体介绍一下cover letter的撰写框架和注意事项，并提供几篇范例，供求职者参考。 撰写框架
对求职者来说，cover letter不同于其他普通信函，它可能直接关系到求职者能否最终获得面试机会。所以，求职者在写cover letter时一定要小心、谨慎，需特别注意以下五个方面。
1. 礼貌得体。在写cover letter时，求职者可首先通过致电招聘公司等方式，尽可能地获得将来读cover letter的人的姓名，这样在信的开头，便可用“Dear +名字”的形式称呼对方。若实在无法了解到对方姓名，也要尽可能地询问到对方的商务头衔，用“Dear +头衔”的方式称呼对方，例如“Dear Recruitment Manager”或“Dear Human Resources Manager”等，这些称呼要比“Dear Sir”或“Dear Madam”更恰当。
2. 态度诚恳。求职者应针对应聘公司的特点和职位要求有针对性地写cover letter，信的字里行间要透露出你想为应聘公司服务的意愿，多表述自己能为公司做什么，少讲述自己通过该应聘职位能获得什么好处。求职者在写信的过程中，一定要杜绝出现错字连篇的现象，否则不但会给人轻率和缺乏诚意的印象，还会使对方对求职者的能力产生怀疑。
3. 实事求是、恰如其分地介绍自己的能力和特长。适度的谦虚是美德，但过分的谦虚是缺乏自信的表现，只会让自己错失良机。因此，求职者在写cover letter时，应对自己的能力有个准确的估量，然后实事求是地予以陈述。只有自己树立了信心，才能获得别人的认同和赞赏。但同时，求职者也要注意，信中切忌出现过分吹嘘的话，例如“我能适应各种工作”“听说贵公司最近效益不太好，我完全有能力改变这种状况”以及“我做过几项课题，贵公司遇到的此类技术问题，我一定能够解决”等。刚出校门的大学生尤其要注意这一点，虽然大学生有一定的理论基础，但尚缺乏实践经验，所以在cover letter中要尽量避免使用“一定” “肯定” “第一”“绝对”“完全可以”“保证能做到”等大话。
4. 篇幅适当。如果cover letter太短的话，可能无法清晰表达出求职者的想法，也会使求职者显得诚意不足；但如果cover letter过长，又会有冗繁之嫌，可能引起读信者的反感。一般来说，cover letter以A4纸的半页至一页篇幅为宜。如果求职者确实有重要的.内容需要详加阐述，也不宜超过两页。
5. 切忌一信多投。“一信多投”是cover letter的大忌。求职者要针对不同的应聘公司和职位要求写不同内容的cover letter。如果求职者抱着“以不变应万变”的态度，将一封cover letter重复地投递到不同公司，可能会让招聘公司认为你偷懒且诚心不够，极易被拒。
下面笔者列举了四篇典型的应聘外企的cover letter，求职者可以根据自身情况进行比较学习。Cover Letter 1 (应聘职位：系统分析员)
