Give Your Cover Letter a JOB!

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

When it comes to writing a cover letter, the experts advise you to make it short—using fewer rather than more words, succinct––clear and focused on your key points, and sincere––writing from your heart and mind.

Good advice! But how are you to accomplish this task? By giving your cover letter a job, that's how. Make it work for you. Your cover letter should:

Call For Overtime If Needed

As soon as the cover letter is complete, review it once or twice to see if it did the job. If not, call for overtime. Go through it again step by step, making sure that every word, every sentence, every paragraph and every point is written in the clearest way possible so that when the letter reaches a hiring manager, he or she will know at a glance that you are the person most fit to fill the job opening.

A cover letter that does its job will help you do your job when the call comes in with the words you're eager to here. "You're hired!"
