In this article, the reader will find what needs to be included in your cover letter to an employer regarding your past work experience and educational background.

It is important to tailor a cover letter to the need of the job position and keep it as short as possible unless it is the kind of position that needs a lot of details.

Still, recruiters are inundated with CVs and Cover Letters, so try to keep them as concise and easy to read as possible, depending on the country you are born in or working in.

The national reading age in the USA is 12 to 14 years old. In the UK, the reading age is nine years old, with The Guardian UK reading age at 14 years old people who read for a living tend to have better reading ability than the national average.

Still, again it depends on the position you are hoping to work in.

Dear Sir or Madam, I have been working as a writer since November 2020. I have gained experience in several writing niches, including News Writing, Protech, Entertainment Writing, UX writing, Art and Culture Writing and several other niches.

I also have experience using Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) when creating articles for online publications.

Furthermore, with the nature of writing, I have fantastic research skills and the ability to be a generalist when it comes to gaining new information and writing as an expert.

I have also worked as a copywriter; this is predominantly sales by print which is the ability to create content that can generate revenue online.

My predominant philosophy regarding content creation and marketing strategies has predominantly been the philosophy of Seth Godin and Inbound Marketing Strategies.

Paragraph One Work Experience

During my time in the writing profession, I have had to develop many skill sets, such as cold emailing to get information from different companies to verify that any articles I have written are correct or if they wish to give any statements.

One great experience I had was during my time at Successful Mindset, working on a temporary contract where I had to create online content, social media content, and documents for the CEO and others that are high earners earning with income of a least £50,000 a year as well as organisations to improve the in-work efficiency, mental stresses and hidden disabilities such as autism and its spectrum of conditions.

I also worked on improving the interview process for people who are particularly vulnerable or lack the developed social skills to succeed.

What I took from my time at this organisation was an understanding of disabilities, mental health and other facets related to understanding the workforce and improving companies’ abilities to cater to the diverse needs of their staff.

As a side note, during my time at Successful Mindset, I also covered work related to integrating immigrants into the United Kingdom’s society and a greater understanding of the problems in the U.K.’s National Health Service.

Also, when doing work for clients, I had to be aware of what they could and could not do due to the organisation’s culture that was unable to change or willing to make any changes due to funding or other reasons.

Pargarphe Two Work Experience

Most recently, I have worked at the leading provider of online professional courses, The Training Hub, where I have worked as a copywriter, proofreader and assistant editor.

In this role, they have to create lecture slides on mental health, hidden disabilities, the disabled, care for the elderly and issues related to tackling abuse in young children.

In this position, I had to use my keen eyes for details and use the appropriate language so that the readers could easily understand the content, so no passive voice in writing and no academic language unless it was reasonable and necessary for the lecture slides.

I have also, since January 2022, been working as a freelance magazine writer and ghostwriter for several publications, such as History On The Net, Author Publishing Magazine, History Is Know, Embrace The Suck, 087 Recovery Diaries, The Sybarite and others. During that time, I have written for financial-related topics, mental health, physical health and topic related to geopolitics, culture and History topics.

I have also learned to use APA referencing, Associated Press Style and have worked using academic journals and gathering information to write on different topics.

The overall degree was focused on the political economy of the globe, different cultures and histories that make up other nations, different civilisations and governments all around the world.

The degree also included understanding supply chains and how this affects international politics and the geopolitics of the globe.

For example, most of the world’s cobalt comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

My other educational attainment since 2021 has been primarily focused on digital marketing, where I did a little seven cars by the courses for professional development online platform studying social media, inbound marketing strategies and how to use the Internet to build and monetise online audience to generate a revenue stream.

Other courses I did during this time were on copywriting and understanding writing not from the writer’s point of view but from the person reading my writing to create better-written content that sells products or services.
