How to write a good cover letter for voiceover jobs

HOW TO WRITE A GOOD COVER LETTER FOR VOICEOVER JOBS.

THE MOST IMPORTANT RULES:

1) KEEP IT SHORT...

Most job will have hundreds, potentially thousands of applications. If you want to get noticed, keep your cover letter well written; short and to the point. Casting directors do NOT have time for long winded or rambling cover letters.

2) KEEP IT SPECIFIC TO THE JOB ROLE...

Only attach ONE example of what you deem to be your strongest most specific VO to the cover letter. Take the job role title; company title; job details from THEIR advertisement of the job and USE them in your cover letter to demonstrate that you have been paying attention!

3) PUNCTUATE, PARAGRAPH'S & SPELLING...

Use punctuation wisely and keep your cover letter spaced out between sentences, so that it gives the allusion that there is less to read. Check, double check and triple check the spelling - if you cover letter contains mistakes, employees may get the impression that you'll make mistakes in their Voiceover project too!

4) RESEARCH THE COMPANY YOU ARE APPLYING TO WORK FOR...

If you wanted to put in that little bit extra effort, with the research & knowledge of that company, you could even mention that you recognise some of there past work.

5) THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE...

Be confident with the language that you use! Instead of, "I want to apply for your Voiceover thingy" - you say, "I am extremely interested in the job role for (JOB TITLE). Be concise and professional about the language that you use.

6)POLITE

It does no harm in being polite. Start your letter with the traditional "To (COMPANY)" and end it with "Regards, (YOUR NAME.)And if you really want to come across polite, stick in, "Thank you for your time."
