Upwex AI, implemented on OpenAI’s GPT-4 Turbo, is an assistant capable of writing a very good Cover Letter for you. All the sentences created by Upwex AI are adapted to job posts. Our AI understands job titles and descriptions, so the right prompt will help you create an attractive proposal for your client. It’s important to understand that a perfect Cover Letter doesn’t guarantee a response from the client, but you will definitely have a better chance of being noticed by the client than other candidates with a mediocre Cover Letter. Also, the ideal structure of a cover letter may differ from your needs such as skills, specialization, and your stack.

What does the client see in your Cover Letter?

The client sees the first two lines that you write in your Cover Letter.
Here is an example:

What does the client see in your Cover Letter

Therefore, it’s very important that the cover letter is written in a single line without line breaks in the first two sentences. This will give you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd. Show your value to the client. The client wants to solve their problem, help them with that. Write only relevant information, avoid messages like “How are you?” or “Hope everything is well”. Upwex AI will assist you in this.

Why are prompts needed?

Upwex AI will identify the client’s problem and present you in the best light. For instance, if you are looking for job posts for UX/UI tasks and the client asks whether you work with WordPress, it will answer: Yes. For such tasks, prompts are needed that help Upwex AI understand you and create an updated Cover Letter for your client.

How does the Upwex AI Cover Letter Generator work?

The Upwex AI generator, built on the OpenAI GPT-4 Turbo platform, operates as a template system with predefined tasks. We call these tasks placeholders. These are tasks enclosed in square brackets.
For example:
[Write a personalized greeting composed in the client's language]
As a result, Upwex AI will provide you with a greeting at the beginning of the Cover Letter in the client’s language. Placeholders are not a static element; you can always create them yourself. The priority of these mini-tasks works from top to bottom. It’s important to understand that if the prompts are not formulated correctly, AI might not understand the desired outcome and will produce a result it interprets. Expand the placeholders with tasks you need, for example in the placeholder:
[Highlight my qualifications and unique selling point]
we can add use Ukrainian language and get the final placeholder in this form:
[Highlight my qualifications and unique selling point use the Ukrainian language].
All other placeholders will default to English except for this one. This will distinguish you from competitors, but this is just an example of how you can use placeholders and expand them. Next, we will look at the interface of the generator and all its default prompts that Upwex provides so that you can understand how to build the structure for your ideal prompt that will make you an excellent Cover Letter.
