What’s wrong?” Or, “I’m giving up. No offers after a month of applications. Maybe there are no good jobs out there.” We can’t blame anyone who has had these experiences to feel frustrated, to become disappointed, and to...

How To Create A Winning Cover Letter

Work from home jobseekers often ask us if a cover letter is necessary when submitting applications to job. There are three answers: Yes, definitely if the employer requests a cover letter as part of the application Yes, hopefully, if the employer provides the means to include it in the application, even if the cover letter is not requested No, but only when there is no request or way to include it with the application The reason to include a carefully crafted cover letter whenever you can is that it can be the single best way for you, the applicant to:  (1) Express your deep interest in the offer; (2) Quickly hit the high points of your qualifications; and (3) Serve up a sense of your unique personality and qualities. Let’s tackle each of these, and then I’ll show you how to write an effective one-page cover letter. Before getting into the specifics, though, let’s first understand the difference between a cover letter and a resume. The cover letter should not be a duplicate of the resume; instead, it should provide brief highlights and bring out how you are, as a person. As you may read in my recent blog “Your Resume Is An Advertisement For You” the resume is a one-two page summary of your job objective, your experience, your accomplishments and education, with some personal detail as appropriate. But the cover letter is different: It lets “you be you” to the employer, and get a few words in that show your interest, commitment and qualifications. The trick is to do all that on a single page. Let me show you how:   Top Of Page Contact Info & Addressee At the top of the letter, place your name and contact information, and if you have the name of the employer, insert “Dear (name).” If no name is available,...
