The good news is that they are all using examples of good cover letters from the web. Your first opportunity to come alive is how you go beyond your resume cover letter format to make your letter better. With these tips, your letter can breathe life into you, make you memorable to the employer.
Imagine a recruiter opening your cover letter to discover a title that addresses his top problem. How much more attractive will your packet seem? Go do two things right away: 1. Google "Johnson box for business letters" and learn about this terrific device, then 2. Brainstorm 7 headlines you could use for your cover letter format.
