One of the truly arduous tasks of running a successful job-hunting campaign is consistently writing effective cover letters. For most people, this proves a difficult and ever-present challenge. Unlike a resume, where the job seeker can commit several hours to its perfection, cover letters must often be written "on the run," be tailored to specific circumstances, and still have a highly positive impact on the reader. For most people, this presents a difficult challenge. Unfortunately, in many cases, a hurried, sloppily-prepared cover letter can lead to disastrous results!
The cover letter is far too important to be left to chance or hurriedly written at the last minute. Instead, the job seeker needs to be equipped ahead of time with an arsenal of highly effective, professional cover letter models that, with only minor modification, can be rapidly deployed as needed.
If well written and informative, the cover letter can grab the reader's attention, raise his curiosity, and stimulate immediate interest in your employment candidacy. In fact, if particularly well written, it can sometimes raise sufficient interest to compel the reader to extend an interview invitation without reading the resume document to which it is attached.
