Executive Cover Letter Writing

Executive level professionals need to include more information on their cover letter. Where we usually would suggest 3-4 statements defining their career in the body of the paragraph, an executive should have at 6-8 statements. In many cases, it would be appropriate to use two paragraphs to outline the entirety of your experience. For example, someone that had a 20 year sales career with the most recent 5 years working in operations may need to spend more time defining their career.

There is no question that an executive needs quantified achievements in their cover letter. A bulleted list of accomplishments should be incorporated into the document so those achievements stand out. Identify your top 6-10 actions that resulted in multi-million dollar cost savings or high percentage revenue growth. Any time that you improved innovation, technology or productivity do not be afraid to list that on the cover letter.
