Modern-day cover letter is your introduction—of any kind—to the employer.
There are essentially three ways this occurs:
- Cover Letter
- Email (with attached resume)
- Applicant Tracking System (ATS)
Your “cover letter” has three goals:
- Explain why you’ve contacted the employer.
- Provide insight on who you are and what you offer.
- Show enthusiasm and interest in hearing (back) from the employer.
You can accomplish these three goals in four sentences, which I discuss in the video. You can also grab this FREE 4 SENTENCE COVER LETTER DOWNLOAD to see the exact format!
