Use a Simple 'Bullet' List!

Writing a job search cover letter on a single page can be a challenge. There are so many items you may consider including. But, there is one powerful and easy-to-read technique for doing just that--put your best points in a bulleted list! Like this...

During my five years as Customer Service Manager at ABC Corporation in Any City, USA I was responsible for:

  • Training new representatives
  • Overseeing the customer sales department
  • Handling customer complaints
  • Updating our IT
  • Introducing new service strategies
Therefore, I feel qualified to bring my skills and experience to your organization and would welcome an opportunity to meet you for an in-person interview. I feel I'd be a great match to carry out the requirements you've posted online.

Before writing your letter, jot down the things you want to include. Then condense them into short, punchy statements and list them with bullets. Your cover letter will rise to the top of the pile when you communicate in this clear and concise way. A bulleted list can help you stand out from the competition and land you more job interviews.
