Career Ninja Series Step 3: The No-Fail Cover Letter Formula

4 paragraphs that make your phone ring!

If you’re like most people, you hate writing a cover letter.  And it’s no wonder: writing a truly effective cover letter – one that’s sure to make your phone ring – demands a delicate balance of eloquence and brevity, detail and persuasion.

Unfortunately, I see a lot of smart people avoid cover letters altogether, doing a poor job, or choosing to submit their application without one, which is a really bad idea.

First, it shows a lack of effort and commitment to the process.  Employers wonder, if you’re not willing to put in the work to provide a decent cover letter, where else will you slack off?  Second, it shows a lack of skill.  Much of business success hinges on being an effective communicator.  Poor/absent cover letter = Poor/absent communicator.

But producing a smokin’ hot cover letter doesn’t have to be painful!

In fact, over the past 16 years of helping clients draft theirs, I’ve come up with a no-fail, 4-part formula to writing a cover letter that makes your phone ring.

I want you to have it.

In keeping with last week’s post on resumes, I’ll share my best Career Ninja tips with you using a cover letter I wrote for a recent client.

Here it is!
