Default Cover Letter Makeover

Too many job seekers use their cover letters to express what they want; however, a truly effective letter speaks to the employer’s needs. If your cover letter seems like it's just not doing the job, revamp it by showcasing your accomplishments and focusing on the employer’s requirements. For inspiration, take a look at our “before and after” cover letter makeover.

Sample Cover Letter: Before


The “before” cover letter sample is OK, but to stand out in today’s job market, there has to be more substance. The job seeker explains that she has a strong work ethic and a successful career, but doesn’t provide any evidence of her accomplishments.

Sample Cover Letter: After

The “after” cover letter example is a strong statement of the job seeker’s value proposition. She includes examples of her accomplishments so the employer can see exactly how she would be an asset to the company if hired
