A Great Reference Guide for Job Seekers
This has just got to be one of the best cover letter reference guides I have come across. This book features 600 cover letters, all classified under different sections like 'Response to Classified Advertisement', 'Response to Blind Advertisement', 'Letter to Employment Agency' just to name a few. The best thing about this book is that under the different sections, letters are then classified under different kind of jobs (i.e Analyst, Business Consultant, Hotel Manager etc etc), making this a really comprehensive guide that gives you samples of things to write to your prospective employers in the different industries. Not only that, the book also provides ideas on how to personalize your letters, what kind of style should you write in as well as the really useful 'Twenty Cover Letter Blunders to Avoid'. I myself styled my cover letters using a few of the samples across industries, by selecting the phrases that best suit my needs to create my own personalized cover letter; and the frequency of my letters getting a reply has indeed increased. Special thanks to Adams Media for publishing this book, because I have since found a job using it! For all of you job seekers out there, why not give this book a try. This book also comes with a diskette that allows you to create a cover letter in a jiffy, but I found that it could look quite impersonal and the wordings in the paragraphs may not be suit your needs entirely. One thing to note here is that much of the content is used in the American context, but if you overlook this, it's quite a good guide.
