Every so often, someone will ask me:
“Why even bother with a cover letter?” or “Jenny, seriously. Does anyone even read these things…?“
Or, they go right to my all-time favorite cover letter pushback –
“I heard that the cover letter is dead.”
And to this one, I will categorically respond:
“The cover letter is not dead. If you believe that, you’re probably doing it wrong.”
And if you are doing it wrong, don’t feel bad. You’re definitely not alone. Plenty of people are doing cover letters wrong.
Writing a cover letter that grabs the attention of decision makers, draws them into your story, and swiftly spells out what you can walk through their doors and deliver is really challenging, even for natural born writers.
That's why I created this free course -- to teach you not only how to construct a cover letter, but to construct one that stops them in their tracks and helps you land the interview. (And then the job!)
Our cover letter formula has -- time and time again -- landed our clients' interviews, often very quickly.
Step right up. We'll show you exactly how we do it.
I’m Jenny. I also answer to Jen, J-Fo, JobJenny and “Pssst … Hey lady, how’d you like to play a round of Scrabble?” (Please note: I will win.)
A Detroit girl turned Portlander (the one on the left coast), I've been helping people navigate and grow their careers -- and matching them up with great jobs -- for more than a decade. Originally a journalist and corporate marketing director, I jumped into the world of recruiting, resume writing and career advising in 2003, and I haven't looked back.
JobJenny.com, was born from a belief that it shouldn't be so
stinking hard, overwhelming and confusing to navigate job search, land a
promotion or venture off into a new career field. Since 2010, we've been giving
job seekers and those in career transition the tools, the guidance and the
high-fives you both need and deserve.
We also insist that it's OK to have a little fun along the way. (So, if you hate fun, we will be glad to point you toward a really boring alternate resource to get you through this. Seriously.) (No, not seriously.)
