Take Care on Cover Letters

December 17, 2018

They say you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. That certainly applies to cover letters. If you’re unemployed or under employed, staff at The Work Place can help your job search documents shine (see contact information below).

Some managers and recruiters are putting less importance on these career overviews nowadays and going straight to checking out resumes.

However, for many, cover letters remain your ticket to advancing to the rest of the application process.

When you’re into a full-blown job hunt, there’s a tendency to cut and paste details for similar jobs.
That’s okay but don’t be in so much of a hurry you make simple mistakes.

For example, don’t forget to change the job title each time to the position for which you are applying to. If a manager is hiring for position Y, and your cover letter/resume addresses position X, this is confusing and potentially costly.

You can also reduce your work by keeping it simple.
This article demonstrates how you can reduce your cover letter to one to two paragraphs!
