a cover letter is perhaps one of the most important pieces of real estate that the candidate can sell about himself
(Vocus/PRWEB) March 17, 2011
Cover Letter Template Secrets are finally revealed by Leading Human Resource expert. Jessica Miller-Merrell does it again, wowing over the Human Resource Community with her secrets to extraordinary cover letter writing. Employment seekers need no longer worry because Merrell describes what the critical elements are that must encompass a letter.
In this job market economy, a cover letter is perhaps one of the most important pieces of real estate that the candidate can sell about himself. In an interview, Merrell states “Think of your marketing materials as tools to showcase your home. Walls are painted, selling features like the fireplace and kitchen are showcased, and curb appeal is maximized with pretty flowers and a well maintained yard”.
A generic cover letter is no longer good enough. In the not so distant past, a potential employment candidate would use a cover letter template to produce a nicely written letter. All this required was pulling up a sample letter, than making a few changes to it. Today, it is critical to put some serious time and effort into producing a thought provoking and original cover letter.
Merrell covers some of the finer points of cover letter writing on her blog, Blogging4Jobs.com:
- The cover letter is a hook for the resume.
- Include important information that is not covered in the resume.
- Address employment relocation and job hopping.
- Resume and cover letter should work in conjunction presenting you effectively to a potential employer.
