What is a cover letter? Or what should I include in the cover letter? We always get these and similar questions. Let us answer what we expect in your cover letter when you apply for a job at Shimbi Labs.
The first question is a little awkward for a candidate applying for a job, but we are glad people ask.
A cover letter is a kind of essay that is a window into a candidate's ability to imagine, think, and clarity of thoughts about their own carrier. They are better than any resume and most full interview packets.
This is primarily the reason why all our job openings put such weight on the cover letter. A compelling essay reveals so much so quickly about a candidate. Any investment you make into becoming a better writer is worth it.
Second question, what should I include in the cover letter?
Well, tell us more about you. Your cover letter should include -
What can you do?
How can you help Shimbi Labs?
Why do you need this job?
Why should we hire you?
There's no benefit of writing cover letter early or writing a novel. Keep it sharp, short, and get across what matters to you. We value great writers, so take your time with the application. We're giving you our full attention to you.
