Conveying Enthusiasm without Sounding Like a Phony

Ryan: I've read that you should try to express your enthusiasm for a position through your cover letter. But how do you do that in one paragraph without coming across as a phony?

A good point. The key is not to say that you are enthusiastic; that can sound phony. Instead, let your enthusiasm show through your description of past achievements.

Phony: "I would really love to work for your company. I know that I will excel in its fast pace environment, and if given the chance, I will do a great job".

Genuine: "During my summer internship, I very much enjoyed answering calls and helping solve customer problems. The experience was fascinating; it honed my communication skills and taught me to think on my feet."
