Quick Cover Letter Writing Tip: Cover letters written to help you with your networking activities need to be very personalized. Often, the body of the letter can remain essentially the same, but the opening and closing paragraphs will need to be rewritten for every recipient based on your relationship with that person. Most importantly, remember that your goal in reaching out to people in your professional and personal network isn’t to ask for job openings. If you ask someone if they know of a suitable job opening, the answer will be yes or no, and most of the time it will be no. Instead, you should ask for referrals, introductions, and advice. Your goal of every networking contact should be to come away with the name of someone else you should speak with–ideally with a personal introduction. Word of mouth is the most effective job search technique and is likely to be where you’ll find your next job. Expand the number of people you speak to and you’ll expand your chances that someone will eventually provide you with the introduction and/or lead that turns into a job offer.

I believe the resume Lisa wrote for me is absolutely great. She took all the information I put into the questionnaire and put it into exactly what I was looking. The only test now is, is to see how hiring managers receive it. I would recommend the services simply because I did my own research to find out what the market was looking for in terms of writing resumes and everything I saw was exactly what I got and then some.

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.
