Should I focus on my needs or the employer needs in a cover letter?

Cover Letter Focus

You should focus on the employer's needs, not your needs, when writing resume cover letters. The employer is hiring you; you're not hiring the employer.

Target the employer's needs and focus on specific skills and qualities that will fulfill those needs. Highlight specific instances, skills and tools that you bring to the table to solve their problems.
