Heres a tip for cover letters to get more interviews. Use a bulleted format cover letter rather than a standard letter in paragraphs. The bulleted format is more eye catching, and is more likely to be glanced at by the hiring manager or other person assigned to sort through resumes. This format will help you get your resume seen by more people and as a result get more interviews and more job offers.
If you follow this advice and decide to use the bulleted format, make sure that each bullet point specifies a reason for the hiring manager to talk with you. This reason can be your number of years experience, your education, a personality trait that you have, or an accomplishment.
Examples of bulleted points would be:
Over 20 years experience in Human Resource Management.
Outstanding work ethic. Lead by example.
Master of Science in Education. Currently enrolled in Doctorate program.
Saved last employer $30,000 in revenue through modernization of accounting system.
Increased sales by 25% last quarter.
This bulleted format allows you to toot your own horn, but in a way that does not seem...
