My Cover Letter Critiques Turn an Average CoverLetter into a Great Cover Letter!

Great cover letters win interviews - fact.

Faced with 100 or more resumes or CVs for every job, employers look first at cover letters because they are shorter. If your cover letter is good, chances are your resume or CV will be read. If your cover letter is poor, chances are your resume or CV will be passed over. It really is that simple these days.

I've helped many jobseekers write great cover letters and win job interviews. I can help you too as part of my cover letter critiques service.

Here are some examples of my work. It's important for you to see just what a difference I can make to your cover letter and ultimately your chances of getting hired for the job you want!

Here's the first example showing the difference I made to a client's cover letter who used my cover letter critique service.

Cover Letter Critique Service

Albert sent me his cover letter to review and revise. It's here in its original version if you'd like to look.

Albert had over 20 years experience in the area of Antarctic research and appeared well suited to the advertised position of Executive Secretary. But his cover letter failed to show just how his experience, knowledge, qualifications, skills and attributes specifically matched the job requirements.

Instead, Albert had written a cover letter which simply described his experience. He left it to his interviewers to work out if his experience meant he could do the job.

Below is my revised cover letter, with only minor details changed for privacy reasons.

Here's what Albert said in my LinkedIn profile after I helped him: "A highly valuable and reliable service provider, with great professionalism, pleasant attitude and experimental thoroughness that ensured a very efficient and well done job as requested at full satisfaction of the requester".

Dear Mr Monroe

Re COMNAP Executive Secretary Vacancy

I was delighted to learn that COMNAP is inviting applications for the position of Executive Secretary. This is a great opportunity for me to not only make a significant contribution in an area I am passionate about, but also to gain more exposure to COMNAP's operations. Having read the role description, I am confident in my ability to carry out the job to a high standard as I have already successfully performed similar functions in my current and past positions.

My resume shows how much I have accomplished in the 22 years I've been involved with National Antarctic Programs, as well as the breadth of my experience, including the specialist knowledge I have acquired in relevant areas. It's this, together with my passion for the Antarctic, which has driven the many successes I have had on COMNAP's behalf.

Over the years I have built a solid network of contacts and an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally, within COMNAP and the wider Antarctic community. This means that I can quickly gain credibility in the role and use my productive working relationships with stakeholders to the benefit of COMNAP and the ATS.

To help you better assess my application, I have focused my resume on the aspects of my experience which relate directly to the position of Executive Secretary. Appendices 1 and 2 give further details if required and I can talk more about past roles and achievements at interview if necessary.

Also attached are two letters and a certificate from Antoine G, COMNAP Executive Secretary, which support the contribution I have made to COMNAP's work in the last 6 years.

I am available for interview at your convenience and am more than willing to answer any additional questions you have beforehand.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Albert L
