Hard Selling Cover Letter

Priming the Pump

Many job seekers today are tempted to skip the cover letter. Think twice before doing so.

The cover letter is just as important as the resume.

For first time entry-level applicants, individuals seeking a career change or seasoned professionals with years of experience, a well written cover letter is a must.

Of the many resumes we critique every week applying for offshore oil rig jobs, only a small number include a cover letter, and most of those leave a lot to be desired. Including a well written cover letter is a very easy way to get ahead of your competition. When employers look at resumes, this is the process they use:

• They look to see if your experience, abilities, skills and education match their job requirements.

• If so, they look to see if you are a reliable person with a good work history.

The main ingredient of the cover letter is "SELL". When you apply for a job you are "selling yourself" as to why your skills, abilities, education and experience should be considered above all others. I've found most people work better than they write. Because I have many years of experience in writing job getting cover letters and resumes, I can "SELL YOU" to an employer better than you can.

bad at writing

Having an outstanding, professionally written cover letter...

is the best way known to put serious distance between you and your competition.

Finally, a cover letter is...

a little window into your personality that provides the offshore job recruiter a better look as to what you are all about.

A good cover letter will suggest to an employer, "I'm going to interview this person; they sound like just the kind of person we are looking for."
