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 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 am a very satisfied customer as result of the resume writing that Laura completed for me. The content for the two versions of my resume was excellent. I think she emphasized all the best elements of my professional experience. I particularly like her style of writing! THANK YOU Laura!

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.

Outstanding quality and professionalism. The writer was excellent (hope to again work with her on future updates, focus resumes, thank you letters, etc.) She was creative, thought provoking and openly shared her knowledge and experience. I could not be more satisfied with the end result. Great investment and will certainly recommend your services to others.
