What is a Motivation Letter

motivation lettermotivational letter or a letter of motivation is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as a résumé or curriculum vitae. The main purpose of a cover (motivational) letter is to persuade an HR specialist that you are the most suitable candidate for a given position.

Cover or Motivation Letter requires a great set of skills. You are different, so do not copy other’s experiences. B what you are, even if they may deny you.

  1. Make your goal clear; provide a short preview of the rest of the letter;
  2. Why do you think that the university and the Master’s program are interesting and suitable for you? ;
  3. Focus on some of your strongest qualifications, past experiences (international experiences are always relevant) and qualities; organise the middle paragraphs in terms of the qualifications most relevant to the programme, you can also refer to your CV for more details;
  4. Conclude by restating your interest and show appreciation for the chance to prove yourself in the letter (in some cases you can ask for a personal interview)
  5. Write as if your life is an interesting story, even if not beautiful.

 

What is the difference between a motivation and a cover letter?

The motivation letter is usually used when applying for something e.g. for acceptance to a university, to a student programme, to a non-profit organization for voluntary work

etc.

 

You have to explain why you are interested in the specific activity, your motives, why you want to study or attend the programme, why you choose the specific university or programme etc.

The cover letter is used when you apply for a job. You send both

a letter and your detailed CV.

In the cover letter, you must state clearly the position you are applying for and explain why your profile matches the position. To put it simply, it must answer the question ‘’Why you?’’

You may find more information about the cover letter on CVs & Cover Letter. However, you must keep in mind that the cover letter should highlight you relevant skills and experience to relative to the position. Leave the details in your resume and take the chance to say things that cannot be expressed through your CV.

Always finish your cover letter by asking for an interview, and by saying how you can be contacted (e.g. by phone).
