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 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!

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!

I wanted to let you know that in an interview today (large project management/consulting firm), I was complemented on the quality of my resume. The interviewer said it was one of the best he's seen. I followed up with the "thank you for the interview letter" which, is excellent as well. I thought you should know what an impact your work is making in my career search and I'm grateful that out of all the choices that I had, I selected your firm (and you). Anyway, it appears that I'm on my way, thanks to your ability to put my career and value proposition on 2 sheets of paper!

Michelle, A quick note from a VERY happy client...Just had an opportunity to go through the first draft of Sharon's work. I am so impressed. She has done a wonderful job. And mine is not one that is copy and paste from others like me. My current job, in particular, is pretty esoteric. And, Sharon NAILED it! Look forward to wrapping this up. In the meantime, thank you for pairing me with such a great professional! Happy to help on referrals. Great product, great value and great experience so far.
