JOB SEARCH TIP: Cover Letter Magic—Connecting Dots.

19 Jul

The most important thing you can do with a cover letter is begin to connect the dots between your skills, interests and experiences and the job that is being offered. It’s easy to do:

  • Make a list of each of the key job requirements. You can get this information directly from the job posting.
  • For each of the key job requirements, connect how your background fits these requirements.

If you have a number of key requirements for which you don’t have a response, that may an indication your success in getting an interview is limited.

But if you can connect the dots between your background and the job requirements you are far more likely to improve your chances of getting called for an interview.

Want to make a difference with your cover letter? Connect the dots.
