Quick Cover Letter Writing Tip: As you can see in the sample cover letter above, your cover letter should be written to focus on the needs of the employer. What can you learn from the ad? Go through the job announcement with a highlighter pen and mark all the key requirements and needs that the employer mentions. Your cover letter should address all of these and show how you are the perfect match to the employer’s needs. “Parrot” back keywords and phrases that the employer has used in the advertisement. Make sure that you mention all of the relevant experience and qualifications but also provide examples of how your past accomplishments will translate into results and benefits for the past employer. Can you make them money? Save them money? Solve some pressing problem? These are items that you should highlight. Is there something that differentiates you and really sets you apart from other applicants? Make certain that your letter showcases that. End your letter with a call to action.

Very good service!!! Nancy was very responsive and available to answer my questions. She also reached out to me in order to have a better understanding of my career experiences and what I wanted to highlight! This is my first professional resume and I am very happy with the final product. I think that it represents my accomplishments and highlights my strengths. I have already recommended you to a couple of my friends!!!

S.N., Illinois

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.
