Writing a Cover Letter – Get It Right First Time!

So you’ve seen the ad and you are getting your resume tidied up and made unique for this potential job right? Well obviously you aren’t just going to post it without writing a covering letter are you? Are you nuts?

No way! You are going to write a unique covering letter, using the ad that you are responding to as your guide, in a way the cover letter is a mini-sell to get them to read the attached resume.

  • No cover letter = rude ( and smacks of your sending out your resume willy nilly!)
  • Bad cover letter? Your resume is filed in the waste-paper basket!

In Hollywood parlance; your cover letter is the ‘pitch‘ for the cool ‘screenplay‘ that’s attached.

Do it right and your audience should be hooked!
