Here’s the one critical mistake 99 out of 100 job seekers make in their job search:
They send a basic "cookie cutter" type of cover letter attached with their resume. Next, they wait and hope the phone will ring for that elusive job interview... it rarely does.
You are about to discover the BIG 3 secrets 99% of all job seekers will never know.
Secret 1 - Attach a conversationally written, attention-grabbing cover letter to your resume directly ASKING for the interview. Ask and you shall receive. This will instantly give you a big advantage to getting noticed and interviewed. Whenever possible, address it to a specific person. Keep your letter brief and lively, with the focus on landing the job interview.
Secret 2 – Send a FOLLOW-UP cover letter to the same person if the phone doesn't ring within two weeks. This gives you a second chance at getting noticed and interviewed! Simple, powerful, and gives you almost an "unfair" advantage over the competition.
Secret 3 – After you've completed any job interview, automatically send this person a follow-up, THANK YOU cover letter. This can put you at the top of the "job offer" list.
Use this 3-step cover letter formula it works like a charm.
Bonus tip: Pick up the good "old-fashioned" telephone to follow up or say thank you to a prospective employer. The telephone is highly effective and completely overlooked in today’s market. Use it!
Words that describe the greatest jobseekers: Consistent, persistent, action, follow up, telephone, networking, positive, follow up, and of course...follow up!
