Cover Letters & Personal Statements

The need to communicate effectively in writing will be a daily necessity throughout your job search. We provide assistance in the development of personalized cover letters, targeted to specific employers, recruiters, or industries, that highlight your key competencies and qualifications. Cover letters require as much care and attention in preparation as your resume, and are needed for the following purposes:

  • Ad Response - Responding to advertised job listings
  • Employer Direct Mail - Contacting employers who you believe may have a need for your services, targeting an individual with the authority to hire you
  • Recruiter Email - Broadcasting to recruiters specializing in your functional area or industry
  • Networking - Contacting your professional and personal network to inform them of your search

To facilitate the process of marketing yourself to recruiters and employers, we will help you to develop "master" cover letters: (1) A Recruiter Letter that can be mail-merged with a national retained recruiter database, or any other recruiter databases you choose, (2) An Employer Direct Mail Letter for broadcast postal mailings targeted employers, and (3) An Ad Response Letter that can be used to apply for advertised job listings - all in postal and e-mail (electronic) formats.

Cover letter development services include a personal consultation, either in person or by phone, and creation of a "master" cover letter in MS Word .doc(x) and plain text formats.
