Best Cover Letters - The difference between success and failure often lies in tiny details. All things being equal, the difference between getting an interview and not getting an interview very often is the cover letter. Consider this quote from Max Messmer, Chairman and CEO of Robert Half International,Inc., the world's largest specialized staffing firm:"I would be lying if I told you that I read every resume that crossed my desk. But I have almost never not looked at a resume that was accompanied by a solid, well-written cover letter." The lesson here is: Learn how to write a strong letter. This book is intended to help you do just that.


Keep your letters focused on what you can do for employers and their needs. Nearly every letter received by most hiring managers focuses on how great the applicant is, but few demonstrate a clear understanding of the company's current situation.


Don't get too stiff in your writing style. In most cases you will notice that the higher the management level, the more relaxed the writing style. Use this opportunity to show a little flair because your resume, in general, will provide you with less opportunity to show your true colors.
