I’ve had been looking for a better way of putting a cover letter for resumes together. I found that to make your cover letter stand out you really have to put some work into it and it will generate results for you. I sent out about 15 resumes and got one job interview is that time. What I was wondering was should I continue to send out my cover letter and resume or stop until I had an answer on that interview. Here’s what I decided to do.
I felt that I had finally made enough improvement to my cover letter for resumes so I continued to send it out. That and I figured that simply having an interview doesn’t signify that I have a job. I didn’t want to lose out on other possible opportunities. The worst would be me passing up other companies that might take me if this one didn’t. At best I would just have to say I’ve already taken a position. In this job market, I think would be hard accomplish but why not try.
My cover letter for resumes is simple but in well spoken professional language. I was applying in the educational field, with just a little of experience. What I found really useful to incorporate into my cover letter for resumes was the use of my cover letter generator. I had trouble putting together a custom cover letter for every company. To get out 25 letters in a few days it really helped me out. It also used language that was common in the educational field. I think that also presented me in a more professional manner. Though I was limited in experience, it didn’t sound like it.
I’m glad I didn’t stop sending out my cover letter for resumes to potential employers. It turns out I didn’t get the job I got the initial interview with and I would have felt like I had to start over if I wouldn’t have continued. I finally got a job offer on the third appointment I went on. It was a good thing also. The job I took is closer to home than the first one. It doesn’t pay more but I’ll save on the commute.
