I though writing a series will be a good idea and it is good idea, since it helps people that are currently looking for jobs but I also want to keep writing about other things, therefore I will limit all the current and coming series to two weeks. The next series will be to help students that are currently applying to college and graduate school. I will finish the GYH series this or next week. Therefore, you guys will have all that you need for job application and negotiation faster. I already have new ideas of what I will like to write about for the next weeks. Again, if you will like me to cover a specific topic please let me know.
So for GYH3: is Cover letter!
Things to know about cover letters:
- It is only one page
- You need to check for grammar errors
- It need to be to the point
This is the format that I used for my cover letters. I obviously delete my information and put what I write in each sentence so you can use it as well. I actually always had good luck with my cover letters and people had also commented in a good form when I go for interview in the past.
