The perfect tone for a cover letter is professional and business-like, with a note of friendliness to it. It should enhance the impression you make with your resume and provide additional details, but it should not restate it completely. Ideally, use a high-quality cover letter template to write it properly.

If you are wondering how to write a cover letter, adopt a professional but positive tone. You don’t want to sound casual and careless, but try not to make it too serious and impersonal as well. Your goal is to find the fine line. And don’t forget to proofread it carefully!

It has to be friendly and show a positive attitude. At the same time, it has to remain business-like. However, many applicants make the same mistake and write a casual or too personal cover letter. It’s recommended to check some cover letter examples before writing yours to get it right!
