It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing! And you can—with a terrific cover letter that will bring that dream job into reality with an offer that is exactly what you want and qualify for.

Even during hard times employers are advertising positions and hiring qualified people every single day. You can be one of them. If you are a trained individual, experienced, eager to work, and someone who can carry responsibility and leadership without buckling under pressure, then you are among those men and women that hiring managers are looking for and eager to hire. A wide range of jobs from entry level positions to executive management positions are available for the right men and women who are willing to step up and fill them.

How can you stand out in the storm of competition during this challenging economy? Write a unique and compelling cover letter that will grab an employer’s attention and win you an interview that could lead to the job you want.

Winner Take All

A winning job search cover letter includes three simple steps that you can take right now. You don’t have to read a book, take a class, or do a search online. They are as easy as ABC.

A         Acknowledge the employer with a warm greeting and opening paragraph.

Thank you for posting your need for a clothing store manager on With six years of experience managing the Seaside branch of GlamourGarb for my previous employer, I feel well qualified to fill the position you listed. I love fashion and I thoroughly enjoy interacting with customers and employees to make each person’s experience the best it can be.

B         Balance your information with both personal and professional details.

While employed at GlamourGarb I received two Favorite Employee awards and one Outstanding Performance Award for handling a difficult situation on the job. I understand the importance of taking responsibility for the tasks assigned, being accountable to the storeowner, and holding the staff together as a team.

C         Conclude your cover letter with a friendly thank you and request for an interview.

Thank you for considering what I have to offer. May I come in for a brief interview? I want to learn more about your excellent company and to show you how I can participate in helping you achieve your product and financial goals. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Put your name and your experience in front of the people who can help you win the job you are best suited for. By doing so you’ll also be helping them to do their job of hiring a responsible and professional individual that can enhance their company.

Practice Perfects!

Write your cover letter and then review it out loud—preferably with a supportive friend. Ask for honest feedback. Accept it and make the changes necessary to achieve a first-class result. Then look forward with expectation and excitement. A new job is waiting for you. And all because you took the time to write a fabulous new job search cover letter that will inspire a hiring manager to call you for an interview that leads to a wonderful new job and a promising future.
