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 am extremely pleased with the cover letter and resume you produced for me. I have a very complex multi-faceted background that you were able to consolidate into a concise and very effective salable presentation of my skills. The documents you produced were far better than my originals and I feel were more than worth the price I paid for them. It was a pleasure working with you and I will be recommending you to my friends and associates.

Your team was responsive to me at the start of the process and even more responsive when I picked this back up 6 months later. The quality of my interactions with your team has been second to none and I will happily recommend you and your team to my colleagues. I am blown away by the quality of these documents. These are exactly what I need to move to the next stage in my career and I know they will help me get where I want to be. I will happily recommend your company to friends and colleagues. I couldn't be happier and I thank you again for your help.

I am very pleased indeed with the results you've produced on my behalf, Michelle. One of my former business associates, whose judgment I generally regard as excellent, said that the resume "hits a home run"! I am in fact in the process of scheduling an interview with a large Wall Street firm that, after reviewing my resume, apparently concurs with this assessment.

G.O., New Jersey

A truly top-notch organization! From start to finish, each phone contact, e-mail reminder, ease-of-use worksheets....a absolute pleasure to work with such professionals. It really puts your mind to ease as the customer. The job search and interview process is stressful enough....your team takes so much of that away knowing that I can present a resume represents me and my accomplishments. In this way, my first impression will shine!!

Nancy was a pleasure to work with. I was very impressed with the level of dedication that she had put into my project. She was very well versed on "my industry", and asked very specific questions toward our collaborative process. The end result....my resume will get the attention it deserves...the format and content are all first-class.

I will highly recommend your services to all that I know.

J.F., New Jersey

Thank you so much for sending me the email with all finalized project files. I have opened them and saved them on my laptop. I will also save a backup copy. Michelle S. did a great job with my resume and cover letter and I am very happy... I will be sure to refer any friends and thanks.
