This Thursday (7/21): The Customized Cover Letter
I’ve seen plenty of letters that seem like they were lifted right off the Internet and don’t address very well the requirements to whatever job position the candidate is applying. Responding to an ad? Before whisking off our resume and letter, we need to make sure we’ve studied the ad to determine how our qualifications match the employer's requirements. Armed with this information, you can craft a cover letter that positions you as the ideal candidate.
There’s a great method afloat and I’ll show you what it’s about!
We’ll go through a near perfect example of a customized cover letter and discover what those who are selected for interviews are doing, what they aren’t, and why.
Bring your letter on a thumb drive, or email it to me, and we’ll project a few and go through them.
