Crafting the perfect E-Mail Cover Letter is a science.
Your cover letter is everything! It sets the tone for you as you introduce yourself. I’ve watched many amazing artist’s VFX or motion graphics demo reels get completely overlooked because they failed to write a captivating cover letter. No matter how great your reel is, without a strong introduction to WHO you are, and WHY they should look at your reel, it’s very easy to click over your application and never even be considered.
Writing the email that sets the tone of who you are and summarizes what you can do for them. Gives insight into how much effort you’ve put into presenting yourself, your skill set and your job history. Whether you use 3DS Max, Maya, Houdini, Thinking Particles, After Effects, Nuke, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, all the key words that will help make you more favorable as well as your visual effects, design or art skill sets.
This video we dive into the psychology of building an irresistible cover letter.
I will also be releasing tutorials on writing custom ones soon. Stay tuned.
