Do You Still Need a Cover Letter?

A targeted cover letter sets you apart from the competition by highlighting how your unique capabilities directly relate to the prospective employer’s specific needs. Think of your cover letter as a powerful introduction to your resume, helping the hiring authority quickly identify your abilities and skills that are most relevant to the position they are seeking to fill.

Get That Interview!

An effective cover letter captures the reader’s attention and creates strong interest in learning more about you by reading your resume, ultimately leading to an interview. When ResumeSOS writes your resume, included in the basic service is either a prototype (example) of how your cover letter should be structured, or we can write a letter targeting a specific position that you wish to pursue.

Is a Thank-You Letter / Email Really Necessary?

Yes! Assuming you want to keep your name in front of hiring decision-makers...

A compelling, thoughtfully crafted thank-you letter is a vital component of creating a positive impression. This powerful follow-up message integrates what you have learned during the interview process and includes a more refined, informed statement of specifically how you see your strengths contributing to the prospective employer’s success.

Promptly sending a meaningful thank-you letter to each individual with whom you spoke during the interview process will distinguish you from the competition and set the stage for next steps in the hiring process. Depending on the corporate culture of the prospective employer, your thank you can either be a typed letter, an e-mail message, or even (in some circumstances) a handwritten note. Contact ResumeSOS as soon as you leave the interview and we can help you craft your thank you message.
