What is my #1 Cover Letter Writing Tip? Use story telling!
You have a rich career narrative… If you tell it right!
Your cover letter doesn’t need to be boring to read or write. You just have to tell the right and relevant story.
When you write a cover letter, I implore you to not make the most common mistake that job seekers make when writing their cover letters. Don’t repeat your resume! Your cover letter is the place where you can really highlight your narrative, tie it to the employer’s, and show your culture fit to the company. 4 paragraphs of blah can be avoided!
You just have to tell your story! Watch the video for more on my #1 cover letter writing tip!
