Author of the new, Amazing Cover Letter Creator
Want to grab a hiring manager's attention like a magnet? Then lean a little closer because I have the secret for doing just that--a smashing title or headline that practically forces him or her to read your cover letter from the first line to the last without a breath.
This amazing technique is the 'gold nugget in the sand' that puts a cover letter over the top--that special something everyone is looking for. Now it is yours to use and you don't have to comb the beach to find it.
How can this 'bit of gold' distinguish your cover letter from others?
Read on. First create a powerful headline and place it at the top of your cover letter just above the greeting (Dear Ms. Jones). Use boldface print and center it on the page. (Two lines maximum.)
Following are THREE examples of fabulous gold-nugget cover letter headlines--the--secret to landing more quality job interviews:
Why I believe I'm the job candidate you're looking for regarding the [insert job opening title here].
After visiting [company name] website I feel certain I'm a solid match for the [insert job opening title here].
May I please have an opportunity to speak to you in person regarding the position of [insert job opening title here]?
By creating a first-class headline you are showing the hiring manager that you are confident, professional, and polite and that you know how to bring attention to what is important--landing a position that he or she is trying to fill with a high-quality candidate.
Opening your cover letter with an attention-grabbing headline is a most effective means to garner the attention you want and need in order to get an interview. But remember, it's a secret--so don't whisper it to anyone! Put it into practice today and then be ready to accept invitations to interview for the job you want.
