You have to be exceptionally talented in impressing a hiring manager.
But if you have the right resources, and some good advice, you can actually write a cover letter that a hiring manager will want to read, even if it is the 100th one that he or she is reading since the start of the day.
This is not because they hate job applications – it is only because reading one more cover letter that says the same thing over and over again is hardly fun. As an applicant, it is your duty to make sure that your cover letter is not boring or run of the mill.

When you write your letter, always focus on the needs of the employer (i.e., what they are looking for, how you fill their needs, etc…).
To stand out and avoid a generic letter, be specific in tailoring your cover letter and consider the following: Just as you would have someone review your resume, it is essential to have someone look over your cover letter to ensure it best demonstrates how you fit their position.
BACKGROUND CHECK: A background check (including a criminal records check) must be completed satisfactorily before any candidate can be offered a position with the ASC.
Failure to satisfactorily complete the background check may affect the application status of applicants or continued employment of current ASC employees who apply for the position.
