RESUME COVER LETTER
A note about the
cover letter... YOUR MAGIC DOOR OPENER!
You only have a few seconds to impress your next boss.
If you are applying for a job you really want and are highly
qualified for, you must understand how critical a cover
letter is in determining your future with that organization.
All it takes is 10 to 30 seconds for the average employer
to decide whether to contact you for an interview or throw
your cover letter and resume into the circular file. Not
much time considering how long it took you to prepare them.
At least 90% of all job applicants are rejected during this

yours on a clean sheet of paper (from scratch). It takes
a lot of time to address the critical needs that each employer

will be made up of carefully chosen words, phrases and sentences
that clearly establish you as a leading contender based
on your strengths and achievements. Our goal is to create
a clear, concise and enticing document that distinguishes
you from the other job candidates and motivates the employer
to read your resume.
This is why you should include a cover letter with each resume
you submit. It's your Magic Door Opener which makes the employer
want to read your resume and invite you in for an interview.
It's the Magic Door Opener that takes the reader from the
headline (your cover letter), to the story (your resume),
to being offered your next job (your interview). When well-documented
and written correctly it's a natural and seamless progression,
which will produce absolutely superb results.
