An All New Type Of Cover Letter

Heres The Latest And Most Effective Cover Letter I Was Able To Find

1) You just wrote a concise cover letter. Check.

2) You let them know you were available for an interview. Check.

3) You attached your resume. Check.

4) You stamped, addressed, sealed and mailed the resume. Check. Check. Check. Check.

Now you sit by the phone waiting for the calls to come in -- the calls you were sure would flood your line setting up your schedule full of job interviews. But the phone doesn't ring and now your frustrated... again.

Put an end to that cycle. Worry no more. Take a deep breath. Relax. Here are three sure-fire ways to take back control and win more interview opportunities immediately.

1. Write a NEW kind of cover letter. ASK for the job interview and mean it. No polite suggestions or innuendos. Be upfront, clear and direct.

"I would appreciate meeting in person to discuss the position of [fill in job title here]. I will adjust my schedule to meet yours. What time and date work best for you? I welcome the opportunity for a personal interview." (Now THAT'S a statement that all but demands a response.)

"May we schedule an interview when it works best for you? [Insert company name here], is at the top of my list of companies I'd like to work for and I'd love to meet with you in person to discuss the position of [fill in job title here]." (Another nice, clear and direct statement to be called for the job interview).

2. Dial an interview. Wait for several days after you mail your cover letter. Then pick up the phone and call the person in charge and ASK for an interview person-to-person. Don't sound pushy, just eager to get together. Your enthusiasm will impress him/her. Example: "Are you free for thirty minutes on Wednesday afternoon? I would love to interview for the position of [fill in job title here] and feel I'm a great fit for this job."

3. Send an e-mail. Professionals today rely on e-mail for quick messages. Use this effective means of communicating to your advantage. Follow up your original cover letter with an e-mail reminder. Something like this will work.

Dear Mr./Ms. Smith:

On September 12th I sent a cover letter and resume to apply for the position of sales manager at Sunshine Corporation. I'm sure you have many applications to sort through but I feel confident that I'm just what you're looking for. I would welcome the chance to interview for this position and am asking for that opportunity when your schedule permits. Thank you for taking a moment to read my request. I look forward to meeting with you in person shortly. Now that's the Cover Letter That Will Get You Hired...Staying ahead of the competition.
