During our monthly Girls Night Out night we came across the topic of cover letters when one of the girls asked me what I blogged about that day. We went on to discuss resume writing and key words. But we came back to wondering, does anyone really read cover letters? When I offered my advice of looking at a job description and then putting the words from the description into my cover letter so it gets picked up my keyword readers a friend shared something I had never considered.
She said that she writes ABOUT the company and not about herself. When a recruiter or hiring managers sees you are writing about them they’ll at least wonder “well what does she know about us?” and keep reading!
What do you think of this advice?
