Professional Resume and Cover Letter Help

Get Yourself in the Top 5%!

I offer resume and cover letter help to jobseekers wishing to maximise their chances of getting hired. And since only 5% of candidates (on average) get invited for interview these days, you need to impress.

A great cover letter can get you in this 5%.

A bad cover letter can mean your resume isn't even read.

What Makes A Great Covering Letter?

A great cover letter needs to be:

  • Short -- a page at most
  • Clear -- easy to understand
  • Relevant -- to the job you're applying for
  • Grammatically correct -- no spelling mistakes and proper use of grammar
  • Compelling -- it must persuade the interviewers you're right for the job

It's a shame that so few cover letters meet these requirements because as interviewers, it's cover letters we read first. It really is a good way to make a great first impression.

Can You Help Me Write A Great Cover Letter?

Yes. I've helped many jobseekers write excellent covering letters and win interviewers and on these pages you'll find example cover letters and resumes 'before' and 'after' my resume and cover letter help.

Here one 'before' example, sent to me by Jon (reproduced with his permission). Although it's not a bad covering letter, it's no different from the 20 or so I read every day.

A Cover Letter 'Before' My Resume and Cover Letter Help

Jon was applying for a job as a Service Sales Consultant, selling IT solutions and services to worldwide clients.

What Did You Make Of That Cover Letter?

As I said, it's not a bad cover letter, but it doesn't grab your interest much either.

Jon used my resume and cover letter help services and here's his amended cover letter, which won him an interview.

I asked Jon if he'd give a testimonial and he said:

"I used Catherine's resume and cover letter services recently. She reviewed my resume and cover letter and made suggestions which really improved them. I couldn't believe what a difference she made. I would recommend using her if you want to increase your chances of getting an interview. I got one! Then I got the job!"

If you'd like me to review, rewrite or even write your cover letter from scratch, please contact me for details or read more about my services here.

And if you'd like to see more examples of my work here's another sample cover letter. There's also a cover letter I wrote from scratch, here.
