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.

I wanted to thank you for your efforts with my resume and mailing. Several days after the Internet mailing was sent, I received a call from a fantastic company. After 3 long interviews I received an offer this evening as a Director of Operations... I will be a Vice President within a year! It's public and offered a +90K salary plus with Equity. Thank you for doing a fantastic job. Keep in touch! I will update my background with you every so often.

I wanted to get back with you and let you know that on Friday, I accepted a job for which I am very excited. I will start December 2, 2002 as the Vice President, Sales and Marketing for a company called XXXXXXX. They provide full service packages for XXXXXXXXX. I will also be the business unit manager for a new business they will launch in the coming months. Their services are based on providing the very best and comprehensive service at very competitive prices. It is a great opportunity to leverage my last 10 years in college and university relations and youth marketing. It is also located right here in XXXXX, about four miles from my house! There will be some international travel (very exciting) but there won't be the heavy domestic travel that I've had for the last 7+ years. And so I am now embarking on my first extended vacation since college. This feels like such a luxury. I want to sincerely thank you for all of your help through this process. The resume that you created was absolutely critical in my landing this position. I had more than a half a dozen interviews within weeks of circulating my resume, was a finalist for three positions and was offered two positions. The one that I accepted is without a doubt the best fit. I am truly thankful and feel very blessed to have had my search turn out this way. I hope all is well with you and I will continue to recommend your services very highly.

Thanks for the early delivery. I'll take it with me to Singapore. Based on a quick read I would say you are a magician. Thanks again.

Lisa, I LOVE IT!!!! Anyone who is considering a career move should be directing their resume needs to Distinctive. This is absolutely perfect! This kind of resume is exactly what I need, but lack the experience, knowledge and time to create. I am very good at what I do, but my knowledge and my abilities have their limitiations. Acceptance of my limitations is precisely what makes me very good. However, finding the people with the knowledge and abilities that I lack, is what makes me great. Thank you for building my resume with greatness!
