  • “Kevin took my very unexciting resume and turned it into a thrilling read. The reason I chose ResumeEdge was because your writers made a personal phone call. That was the key to making my resume look and sound like me.”
  • “My writer is a real pro. She knows the hiring process and has the gift of being able to write crisp bullets that make my career experience look excellent. She communicates well and offered excellent suggestions and tips that really improved my resume and LinkedIn profile.”
  • “I would like to say a big thank you for Emily's help - the quality of work is brilliant and my resume looks much better now, and I'm very impressed by the cover letter as well. Emily understood my needs and did a terrific job consolidating the info I provided in a clear and concise way. Last but not least Emily is responsive (always replied to my emails very quickly even though we live in different time zones), friendly and helpful, and the turnaround time in finishing up the work was impressive. In the future if I need assistance with my resume I would like to get Emily's help again.”
  • “Thank you for your help with my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn Profile. I submitted the resume Sunday, was called in for an interview on Wednesday and received an offer today!”
  • “I really liked that my editor gave me a call, and that she was so personable. After speaking with her, I felt much more comfortable about paying for this service, and I am sure after reading my resume and cover letter that I will have no trouble getting interviews!”
  • “My resume writer was fantastic. If I ever need to use this service again I will be working with her. She took care and highlighted my talents and turned my weakness into assets. I absolutely love her work.”
  • “I loved that that my writer recommended things to me according to my background and field. I was pushed to really dig deep to find eye-catching information. I feel much more confident venturing out into the job market then I did a week ago.”
  • “Great news! I accepted a position as the Director of the Program Management Office with Dignity Health. Thank you so much for all of your guidance. Without your help on my resume and cover letter, I would have never gotten the interview. Because of your fabulous work, they called me within two days of my application!”
  • “My writer took the time to get to know me and was able to provide input in areas I had not thought of. It was tough because I had to let go of some of my old identities to start in a new career, but she took me over the hump and captured who I am--and what I can give.”
  • “You did wonders with my resume. In fact, I am certain my "new and improved" resume (thanks to you) is what landed me my current job. I got a great job with Zurich Financial Services! A Zurich (on-site) Recruiter called me within hours after posting my resume on Monster.com! So, thank you very, very much.”

A weak cover letter can land your resume in the “rejected” pile

As a job seeker, you might want to hit the submit button for a job application after perfecting your resume, but you still have some work to do if an employer has requested a cover letter! Writing a cover letter can take just as much time as updating your resume, and cover letters offer the perfect opportunity to further explain your interest in a position and potential fit with the organization.

While there are two common types of cover letters (broadcast and targeted), if you really make an effort, both can show genuine interest in the position, employer, industry, and more. Remember, the cover letter should support your candidacy, not distract from it. If your cover letter does not demonstrate your understanding of your audience (the employer and their organization) and specify your unique ability to fill the position, it may come across as generic, or insincere. Therefore, it is very important that the cover letters you write are tailored to the job and company. It’s extremely easy for an employer or recruiter to spot a generic cover letter. Here are some common mistakes to avoid that are hints to an employer that you did not put much thought, energy, or time into your cover letter:

  • The letter doesn’t mention anything specific about the employer and their organization – an effective cover letter would connect personal qualifications to the employer’s needs.

  • The letter goes on about qualifications that do not match the requirements of the job posting – this tells employers that you aren’t tailoring the cover letter to the requirements of the job.

  • The letter is addressed to the wrong person or organization – a sure sign that this job seeker has been carelessly sending their cover letter for multiple positions and can’t keep them straight.

  • The letter isn’t addressed to a specific person – most job postings provide contact information for whom to send the application or job seekers can call the organization to inquire about it! Check the organization’s website for a staff directory and address it to top leadership – it will look better, show you did some research, and be less generic than “to whom it may concern”.

  • The letter includes too many common phrases – employers might think you pulled a sample from the Internet and just plugged in your information which doesn’t show much effort on your part. Be cautious about making statements or phrases of your abilities without providing evidence in your writing.

  • The length of the letter – a generic/template cover letter is often very short and provides limited details about why you are applying, whereas a particularly long cover letter is one that an applicant has created to meet the needs of all types of employers across various industries. Both as examples of a cover letter that has not been crafted with uniqueness in mind, but rather, cutting corners to save time!

Before you hit the submit button, think about the first impression it will send to that specific employer or recruiter. Strategic candidates will leverage their cover letter to demonstrate worth ethic and level of commitment through the job application – it could make or break your chances for an interview!
