The Secret Formula to Cover Letter Success

The Secret Formula to Cover Letter Success

Nina Kim

Ah, the dreaded cover letter. You may know what you should do and shouldn’t do, but when it comes to sitting down and actually writing it — where to even begin? Should you even bother?

If the job listing specifically says to submit a cover letter, then you must! You don’t want to penalize yourself immediately by not following directions. Unless there is a specified name in the job listing, always address it to “Dear Hiring Manager.” Okay, so you open with Dear Hiring Manager, — now what?

Lucky for you, AllHealthcare has spoken to a cover letter expert, and we’re here to guide you step-by-step through her secret formula to cover letter success. This formula has gotten her interviews for all of the positions she’s ever applied for, and she was offered a job for all but one of them.

Now, obviously you’re not going to get the interview if you’re totally unqualified for the job; however, this secret formula can help you properly organize your thoughts, highlight your best assets, and (most importantly) grab the hiring manager’s attention.
