Two Words That Will Put Your Resume On The Top Of The Pile

I have two litle words that can transform your job search. Two words that can land you more job interviews. Two words that can bring you more job offers...

Those two magical words are, "Follow up."

Follow up every single lead, e-mail, contact, phone call, letter, or interview with a powerful and positive post-interview cover letter that puts you head and shoulders above the mob of job-seekers who want the same position you do. Remember, few people stop to put their appreciation on paper. A simple 'thank you,' 'I appreciated the chance of meeting you,' or 'I'm grateful for you took the time today,' can make the difference between landing a job and landing a disappointment.

Write a thank you note directly to the appropriate person. He or she, just like you or anyone else, likes to be acknowledged and appreciated. A follow-up letter also shows the individual who you really are -- a person who is aware, attentive, and ready to be of service. And following up mathematically doubles your odds for success.

Make a good first impression - TWICE!

Well-written follow-up cover letters land more first-rate job interviews.

Well-written post-interview cover letters practically guarantee an increase in the number of job offers you receive.It's your choice. Follow up with a phone call, e-mail, or a Fax. BUT, a brief personal-style letter is the best choice and the most effective post-interview cover letter of all. Keep in mind that every man and woman enjoys receiving mail with his or her name on the envelope. This practice not only makes a great first impression but it makes a lasting one, as well.

Here's a example of a short and post-interview cover letter that really delivers!

Dear Mrs. Jones:

Thank you so much for your time today. I really appreciated meeting you in person, touring your facility, and taking a look at the position you plan to fill with the best-qualified person. I'm especially grateful for the opportunity you gave me to tell you why I believe I'm so qualified to fill the position of (insert job title here). If you'd like to meet or speak again to go over any additional details, please call and I'll be there at a time and date that work's for you. Again, thank you for the opportunity.

Sincerely yours,

Your Name

There you have it. Follow up to land more job interviews and top off every job interview with a follow-up, post-interview cover letter. Then listen for the phone to ring as your name springs to the top of the 'must hire' list.
