Is it your resume? Nope.

Salary requirements? Nope.

Employment Gap? Nope.

Education? Nope. Skills? Still no!!

It's your Cover Letter!!!! Yes, that's right…

And more accurately it is NOT having a Cover Letter.

The vast majority of candidates don't even have a cover letter.

Then when they do it's an after thought.

And WOW they are bare bones and shabby.

Your Cover Letter is your VOICE and your opportunity to advocate and shine as a candidate. Your Cover Letter is your statement about you and why you're a perfect fit for the job and the organization.

Why are you forfeiting that opportunity?

Especially when you're 1,000 miles ahead of the competition just for attempting to submit a Cover Letter when so many candidates are too lazy to even bother.

If you're looking for competitive edge…you've now found it.

Give some love to your friend the Cover Letter.

It pays massive dividends.

Why are you skipping the Cover Letter?
