How To Write a Cover Letter For an Account Manager Job?

Writing Tips For Account Managers

Before you start writing your own cover letter, I’d highly advise you to go through these writing tips for account managers:

  • Use the appropriate font and font size: Calibri, Arial or Times New Roman with a 10 to 12 point size for easy reading will do. Do not use novelty style fonts like: Comic-sans, Script Style or handwriting fonts. Furthermore, keep it a one page document with around 300 to 400 words and 4 paragraphs.
  • Thoroughly read the job description and pay attention to keywords that are used more than once. Be sure to reference the requirements listed in the job description, and elaborate why your skills and experience match these requirements.
  • Make sure to understand the skill set of account managers. The soft skills include, among others: interpersonal and communication skills, both written and verbal. Common hard skills are, for instance, someone’s proficiency with CRM software or social media channels like LinkedIn. If you want to process these skills in your cover letter then you need to make sure you provide context to each achievement. What did you achieve in numbers, percentages or awards you’ve been granted.
  • Do research on LinkedIn and the company’s ‘about us’ page. Not only so you know to whom you need to address your letter to, but also to find similar interests between you, the hiring manager and organization. If you highlight these in your cover letter or interview, your chances of getting the account manager position increases.
  • Keep your cover letter short, concise and to the point. Avoid jargon, so don’t use generic business terms and long complicated sentences but write in ‘Simple English’. In addition, proofread your letter and use the Word spelling check.
