Tips On Creating The Perfect Cover Letter

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

The best cover letters are 'one-page wonders.' Why? Because they suit today's busy employers who are already overloaded and often overwhelmed.

The best way to catch their attention is to 'be brief-and be gone.' Leave them wanting more-so they'll call you for an interview-which is just what you hope for. Write a letter that makes your point about the job you want, displays your enthusiasm, and clearly asks for the opportunity to meet in person.

Put these "Seven Secrets" of a 'Short and Sweet' Cover Letter into practice and get your phone ringing next week:

  • Write a cover letter that fits on one page - MAX - three paragraphs total!

  • Give your letter plenty of 'white space' by creating generous margins and double spacing between paragraphs.

  • Use bullets and numbered lists when appropriate. This allows for easy scanning.

  • Start the first sentence of each paragraph with bold-faced type to draw in the reader.

  • Create paragraphs with three to four well-written sentences each. Convey your passion and enthusiasm to be interviewed for the position being offered.

  • Print out the completed letter and scan it for that 'easy on the eyes' appearance. Remember, less is more.

  • Clearly and directly ask for the opportunity to be interviewed!
  • There you have it! Seven Cover Letter Secrets that will land you more job interviews and hopefully the job you've been searching for.

    These cover letter tips can be the difference-maker in your job search. Remember, it all starts with getting your foot in the company door and a well crafted cover letter will get noticed. So make sure yours packs an interview-landing punch!

    Your job search is all about results. Try this one cool, cover letter strategy for yourself and see how many job interviews you land!
