Great Cover Letters ...
By Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy and Author of the new, Amazing Cover Letter Creator
Searching for a job? Moving in a new direction? Changing professions? Take this step to win that interview for your dream job. Spend more time and energy writing cover letters that are job-specific.
Go the Extra Mile
Having a degree or work experience in business administration or accounting or nursing is not enough. You must show the hiring manager your specific job-related abilities, leadership strengths, and communication skills across the board.
Being able to work with a variety of people, respond to crises, and meet unexpected challenges are now more important than ever. Because if you can't, someone else will. In today's tight job market, hiring managers have the advantage. So you must show them why they need you!
Use Proven Methods
How can you do this? "By using tried and true professional job-search tools," says California-based Karen P. O'Connor, professional writer and career expert.
Take seriously the importance of writing what she calls "a sizzling cover letter--one that captures the hiring manager's imagination with a great headline [THREE-TIME CUSTOMER SERVICE AWARD WINNER SEEKING A POSITION AS A CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER], job-specific details [trained and retained more customer service representatives in my first five years than at any time in the company's history], a clear understanding of the company's objectives [I am eager to show by my actions your objective that customers come first] and how you can fill those needs competently and with commitment [I welcome the opportunity to prove myself to you.]"
Be Sure to ASK For What You Want
Close the letter, O'Connor suggests, "by asking for what you want. 'May I come in for an interview?' or 'I'd appreciate meeting you in person to talk further.'"
Searching for a job may be more challenging now than it was even two or three years ago but every day men and women are interviewed and hired to fill the openings that exist. You can be one of them. "Start with a great cover letter, keep an open mind, and focus on gratitude," says O'Connor, "as you anticipate your new job. It will come."
