Marshall Brown: Cover letters that work
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Q: Can you give me some quick tips on how to write an effective cover letter?
A: I want to caution you though that each cover letter needs to be tailored to the specific job that you are applying for. You can't just have one template anymore and use that for every position. If you can, take the time to find out what the unique problems, challenges, etc., of the organization might be. Show them how you have the qualifications to help them solve their problems. And YES, even though you might have some of this in your resume, be sure to key in on some of the main issues in the cover letter as well.

"Dad, can I borrow a quarter?" I asked. I was 8 years old at the time and in a rush. My father handed me a quarter and I was off, spending it on something I thought was extremely important. A week or so passed and I was in my bedroom working on something I thought was really pressing, when my father came to my door and asked if he could come in. He had something to ask me. "Sure, Dad. What's up?" I asked. Although my father was quite formal with me, I had adopted a fairly casual style with him. It seemed like a good idea at the time. More

Susan Adams: Use the holidays to find a job
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When my friend Matthew turned down an offer for a lucrative marketing position two weeks ago (it conflicted with the non-compete agreement from his old employer), he told me he couldn't find another job until the new year. That's just the way it is in his business, he said. When the holidays hit, no one hires. That's how most job-seekers see it: November and December are lousy months to look. Plus, if you've been hunting for a long time, it's a tempting time to take a break. More

Adrienne Graham: Stop applying for jobs; get tactical, creative
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I recently stumbled across a post in one of the LinkedIn forums I frequent where a young lady was asking for help. She said: I have a Bachelor of Science in accounting and an MBA in finance, and I've applied for more than 1,500 jobs and nobody will hire me. Would you like to know what I told her? Stop applying for jobs. Period. You might be saying that's harsh, but it really isn't. Everyone else is doing the same thing she's doing (and probably you, too, if you're on the market), and very few people are getting their desired results. More
