We all know what a professional resume is and how it can be a powerful tool to leverage you ahead of your competition but let’s talk about targeted cover letters and how when combined with your resume, can catapult you leaps and bounds. While it is simple to create a general cover letter, adding a targeted cover letter that is error free and precise- matching the qualifications an employer is looking for will enable your resume to be considered.

Tip for writing a targeted cover letter: View your job selections and create a list of their criteria and match it up with your qualifications.

Take some time to create a paragraph or two that specifically states why the potential employer should not only look at your resume but should call you and offer the interview and job.
