Understand the reason behind an attention getting cover letter. You have seen the " I read with interest your job posting for a ..." Since many people use this beginning, it is no wonder that Hiring Managers and Recruiters say that 99% of all cover letters are NOT attention getting and almost 90% GET IGNORED.
Once you complete this course you will know how to be attention getting. This skill can put you ahead of virtually everyone who is applying.
Here's an idea of what is covered in this course.
Part 1. Research - How I do it and why it works
Part 2. Writing - Don't be afraid, you can do this,too.
Part 3. Review and Focus - What to think about as you go through the process (and why)
Part 4. What You Learned - How to put it into practice
With 35+ years of "other side of the desk" experience, I know what you need to do to be successful in your job search.
In my career, I have read over 5,000 resumes and/or applications, interviewed thousands of applicants and promoted and mentored hundreds of employees. Many have gone from entry level positions to senior management and beyond. I know what works in the hiring process and I know what doesn't.
I began my Six Second Resumes Business in 2010. I have three certifications and have offered programs for the NJDOL, colleges and open workshops. I have reviewed resumes at National Career Fair Events in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Maryland.
My hiring experience has been on the operations side. My career includes seven years as a store manager for Best Products, and 27 1/2 years as a Senior Manager for Costco Wholesale. I recently retired from Costco to spend more time helping people learn the skills they need to land their dream job.
