"What are your greatest strengths?"
• Don't: Limit your explanation to short answers like "I'm very hard working" or "I am a team player."
• Do: Convince the interviewer. Tell her or him a personality trait, then immediately provide a 1-2 minute "real world" example to demonstrate. Have two or three scenarios prepared in advance. A lot of people having a hard time writing a good resume, but resume services can help you.
"Where do you see yourself in five years?"
• Don't: Mention your plans about going back to school or starting your own scuba-lesson business on a desert island.
• Do: Show that you have ambition and a structured way of setting goals. But you don't have to be specific. Instead, explain how at this point in time you look forward to advancing your career, and that you realize other opportunities may crop up as the company learns more about you and vice versa.

First paragraph: express your interest
The first paragraph is extremely important to impress a recruiter. It should contain the reason for applying for the job advertised and your professional motivation. It is also a good practice to mention one or two defining professional skills and highlight that you would like to apply them to benefit the company. Some career experts also recommend showing the knowledge of corporative culture and history of the organization you want to work in. However, this approach is not always relevant because recruiters usually prefer to read about your skills, not about their companies.
The introductory paragraph should not contain more than 5 rows. Usually, it has three or four rows and is easy to read.
Second paragraph: tell, what you do
Briefly describing your current work responsibilities in the second paragraph of your cover letter is a good practice. As already mentioned above, you should focus on the combination of relevant skills with the work you do. Try to include two or three such combinations in the second paragraph of your cover letter and you will succeed.
If you don’t have a job at the moment, write about your previous role in this paragraph. The main idea is to show what you did in your previous position and how this experience can help you in the intended role.
Third paragraph: highlight the most important parts of your career
The third paragraph is often used in cover letters to describe the applicant’s skills. However, it is much better do display main highlights of your career in it. If a candidate is applying for a position in a field where he or she has a lot of experience, this experience is worth mentioning in a cover letter. We recommend you to write the third paragraph of your cover letter in accordance with the scheme used for its 2-nd paragraph. Combine descriptions of your previous job duties with skills. Such combinations will allow you to better explain the recruiter how you can benefit the company.
Fourth paragraph: invite the employer to contact you
The closing paragraph of the cover letter is rather formal than informative. However, it is a rule of business etiquette. Invite the employer or hiring manager to contact you and tell that you are open both for emails and phone conversations, as well as for personal interviews.
