Most people don’t know how to write a cover letter, so let’s learn!
Or maybe your last boss told you that you were the most accurate data processor she’d ever seen, or came to rely on you as her go-to person whenever a lightning-fast rewrite was needed.
Maybe your co-workers called you “the client whisperer” because of your skill in calming upset clients.
If you squander one of those pages by just repeating the content of the others, you’re doing yourself an enormous disservice.
Instead, your cover letter should go beyond your basic work history to talk about things that make you especially well-suited for the job.
