  Knock, knock: How to Write An Effective COVER LETTER that Opens Doors
by John Crant - Jun, 2012
Cover Letters are one of the most perplexing challenges for the Job Seeker. The Job Ads ask for one. The guides all suggest we send one. Why is it that so many resumes go out without a proper cover letter? (most of them may never be read, but they will be… for the right candidates) Careful taking license with what I just said: Yes, most cover letters will never be read. In a world where there are often 3–5,000 resumes se...
 
  Can’t all my cover letters be the same?
by Julie Walraven - May, 2012
NO! You can’t write the same cover letter for every job. It then is just an extra document, extra page, with no extra information. Almost every day I get this question from a client or inquirer: Can I use the same cover letter for all of them? or “Just write me a cover letter” (and some of those people don’t even bother to find a job they are targeting first. The confusion about what a cover letter is and is not never...
 
  Cover Letters versus E-Notes
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2012
Some things get super-sized, like fast-food portions. Others get minimized…like cover letters? Just when I thought I knew everything there was to know about writing cover letters (not really), I started seeing references to e-notes. Apparently, we now have to start thinking in terms of the old quote about “less is more” with regard to cover letters. So, hello, e-notes! Difference between a Cover Letter and an E-Note As...

by Kimberly Schneiderman - Apr, 2012
One of the reasons writing can be so hard is that we often dive into the writing part without a lot of thought to the strategy and purpose of our message. By giving yourself a slower start and working a bit on the overall picture of what you want to accomplish in your writing, you will likely finish with a much better message! Tip 1: It is all about ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! Actually, that is a joke. It is not all about you....

  Cover Letters–Not Your Life Story
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2012
Some job seekers start to write a cover letter and don’t seem to know when to stop–or how to focus, for that matter. If that description fits you, I suggest you think seriously about what it is that you want and need your cover letter to accomplish. If it’s to bore the reader (employer) to tears or motivate him/her to turn the letter into a paper airplane, no problem. Your over-long, poorly focused cover letter will do the tri...

Write a hook in the opening paragraph. ¡Start your letter with a startling fact or industry trend. ¡Congratulate the company o...

  How Twitter Hashtags Can Help You Find a Position
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Nov, 2011
Everyone probably remembers the first time they heard about Twitter and about how young people were throwing around their one-liners about sitting on the porch, walking to the mailbox, walking back to the porch, sitting down …well, you get the picture.
