A cover letter is one of the best opportunities to create a standout statement from your peers in the job application process. While your resume follows a somewhat strict structure, your cover letter offers much more space for you to let your personality and experience shine. Let this be the letter that drives the message home – you are the best candidate and your enthusiasm for this role is unrivaled. Give them a taste of what you have to offer, show off previous accomplishments, and craft it in a way that is unique to you. That’s where Adobe Spark Page comes in.

Address the person or employer to whom you are applying and be sure to specify the role you are interested in. Describe your relevant experience along with an explanation of your interest or a relevant anecdote. It’s always good to write up a rough draft ahead of time to spell check and re-work any grammar if you need to, that way when you begin to design your cover letter page you can focus on dragging and dropping in your info and laying it out as desired.
There are endless customization options with Adobe Spark Page. Choose a theme that matches the mood of your application. Themes will change the font styles as well as some of the formatting and headers, so play around until you find the right fit.
If you have photos that are examples of your work or accomplishments, upload them and drop them into your cover letter. Adobe Spark Page also gives you access to stock photos and graphics that you can use to make your cover letter dynamic and captivating. Explore the multiple layout options to optimize your media presentation and get creative by adding your personal touch.
Once you’ve put the last touch on it, your cover letter will be ready to share immediately. Create a link to send to friends, family, or prospective employers. If details change, you can always go back and make edits to your letter.
Your cover letter is your chance to stand out and what better way to do it than with a compelling design. A sleek and streamlined presentation is easy to make regardless of your design experience.
