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.

Your work is incredible. I thought I had a pretty good resume to start. But after reading these, I want to hire me because I know this guy can change the world. But based on his qualifications and achievements, I probably can't afford him!

Marie: A few months ago you rewrote my resume for me. I can't say how grateful and thankful I am that I chose to let Distinctive Documents assist with my new resume. I accepted a position with Xxxxxx and I leave for Xxxxx on 4 Sept. Now I will be able to pay my home off in a couple of months and get one of my rental properties paid off within the year. Thanks again & GOD BLESS!

I am extremely pleased and impressed with Michelle Dumas from Distinctive Documents. Michelle and her team merged all of my background documents, old resumes, and completed forms into an outstanding resume. However, she did much more. While absorbing all of my background information, she summarized all of my experience into one word, intrapreneur. That's impressive! Over the years, I have worked with some of the best writers, marketing, sales, and practice executives around the world. Michelle is definitely the best professional writer, I have ever engaged.

My overall impression of your service is outstanding. Your staff was friendly, the service prompt, and the resume quality was excellent. I mailed out four resumes and was invited for four interviews. One of my interviewers, the one whose offer I did accept, said that this was the best put together resume that he had ever seen...
