Help with how to write a good cover letter?

Hello everyone!

I am looking for help with how to write cover letters when applying for roles.
I understand I need to keep it short, but I am applying mostly for non-speaking adverts, so I am not sure what to say about myself or how to stand out as the roles do not usually require any unique skills etc what do companies like to see in a cover letter?

Any help or example of a cover letter would be much appreciated!

Hi Nix,

I find that highlighting strong facial expressions and a good level of energy is really useful when applying for non-speaking roles. It's also good to mention that you take direction well - perhaps even mention an example of non-speaking roles you have previously taken on? Experience can boost the application for a role with no dialogue.

I hope this helps!

Hi Nix,

In my experience - just be yourself when writing cover letters. Give them a quick introduction, any experience you have relating to the project/casting and any other necessary information that might help you get casted! Most of the time, I don't think they even read the cover letters. So, something short and snappy will do. If they like the look of you, they'll contact you and ask for more details.

Hope this helps.

I tell them I’m punctual, reliable, available on the required day, my age, location and a little about my job history and anything related to performances in any way.

Hi Nix,

Just keep it brief, it’s more about your look rather than what you write.

Writing a good cover letter is very important otherwise it will make a bad impression on hiring managers. If you are preparing your resume then you should hire a Cover letter writing service to make it look more professional. Your resume & cover letter will be accurate then there is a chance to get a job.
