A business proposal is a request by a business or individual to complete a specific job or project, to supply a service: or in some instances to be the vendor of a certain product. It is not a business plan. While you might use your business plan to help inform your business proposal when you are writing it, these documents are not one and the same. In its simplest form, a business plan is a guide for your business, a roadmap that outlines goals and details how you plan to achieve those goals. It is used to keep you on track (internal use) and to support any applications you might make when seeking investors, or when applying for commercial loans (external use). A business proposal on the other hand is used to try to attract and acquire business. It pitches your business, product, or service to a potential client, vendor, or supplier. A client, vendor, or supplier might also request a business proposal from you when trying to evaluate whether or not you are someone they want to work with, or whether or not you can provide the services or products they require. Write a good proposal and you might snag business: write a poor one, and you may lose out, even if you are offering the best service out there.
You use it to quickly tell a prospective employer who you are and why you are writing to them. You can include information here about things like your areas of expertise and your career goals and how they align with the company. This is also where you let them know what position you are specifically applying for as well as how you heard about it. Are all about what skills and knowledge you have that is specific to the job you are applying for and will be bringing with you should they offer you the position. Make sure you highlight your qualifications and how they fit in with the open position. Use words directly from the job description. Again, this is not the time to just repeat your resume, use this space as an opportunity to really show them how you are the employee they have been looking for all along and how you are perfect for the job they are currently hiring for. When a company posts a job opening, they are posting what they need. What skills, abilities, knowledge and experiences are they looking for? Use this paragraph to highlight how you fill that need. This is also where you can fill in any information that might not be on your resume but which will help show why you be perfect for the position. Wrap up your letter by thanking them for taking the time to read your letter and considering you for the position. Do not forget to include how they can contact you as well as your plans to follow-up with them.
A cover letter is a quick way for you to summarize who you are, what position you are applying for and what skills and knowledge you have. But can not they just get the majority of that information from my resume? Yes, but at the same time, a cover letter is a great opportunity for you to introduce information that is not in your resume! Most people fail to realize this and just use the cover letter as an opportunity to regurgitate everything that is in their resume. Not only are they just doubling up useless information, they are missing out on a huge opportunity to engage a potential employer as well as showcase other skills or outside experiences that might not be on their resume but which are perfect for the position. You do not need to include every skill you possess in your cover letter, rather you use your cover letter to specifically target both the job and employer. Using the cover letter as a way to express to your potential employer what it is about the position that appeals to you and why you want to work for them is a great way to both introduce yourself and get them curious enough about who you are to keep reading.
