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

It's a fact. A well written cover letter can land you many more job interview requests. And while most of your competition doesn't realize it, a truly "amazing" cover letter is not a cover letter at's a SALES letter.

As such, it needs to be visually pleasing, easy to read and attention grabbing.

Here are 7 easy steps to adding a little "salesmanship" to your cover letter:

1. Put three paragraphs on one page.

Paragraph 1: State the job you want.
Paragraph2: Summarize your qualifications.
Paragraph 3: ASK for the job interview clearly and directly.

2. Write only three or four sentences in each paragraph.

3. Create generous margins, leaving plenty of white space. Be sure to double space between paragraphs.

4. Capture the reader's attention by putting the first sentence of each paragraph in bold face.

5. Use numbers or bullets to make the letter easy to read.

6. Read your letter carefully to catch errors, then print it out for one final edit.

7. Keep your cover letter to ONE PAGE, no exceptions.

Picture the employer opening your cover letter--and finding a friendly, well-written page that contains only what is necessary to evaluate you for the job. Make it easy for the employer to say "yes."

There you have it! SEVEN SIMPLE STEPS to an amazing cover letter that will inspire any employer to read yours from the first word to the last, and then reach for the phone and offer you an interview that could lead to the job of your dreams.
