Cover Letter Secret that Grabs the Eyeballs

By Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy and Author of the new, Amazing Cover Letter Creator

Have you ever written a letter or email and after you signed off, suddenly realized you have one more thing to say?

Or you wanted to remind your reader of something already stated? It's easy to remedy. Just add a P.S. (short for postscript).

This powerful little addition is also an effective tool to use in your job search cover letters. Oftentimes the P.S. will be the first line to grab the hiring manager's attention. These two letters of the alphabet strategically placed at the end of your cover letter can be more powerful than all the paragraphs that precede them.

Decide now to add a P.S. intentionally. Why? Because it's impossible not to read it and it's your chance to call your reader to action once again--namely to make an appointment with you for a job interview.

Saying Something Again in a New and Fresh Way

Add a bit of pizazz to all your cover letters by using the P.S. to restate what you've already said in a way that will attract attention, motivate action, and promote connection between you and the hiring manager. Here are two examples to follow. Use your own wording, of course, so your reminder is unique.

P.S. On June 10 I will follow up with a phone call to be sure you received my application. I look forward to meeting with you in person and interviewing for this position. Feel free to call me at 555-555-555.

P.S. Thank you for taking the time to read my cover letter. I honestly believe I'm the perfect fit for this position. I'd welcome the opportunity to schedule an interview at your convenience. Please call me at 555-555-5555.

P.S. Keep in mind that people will never skip a P.S. so be sure to include one in your next cover letter.
