Want to write the perfect cover letter in only 30 minutes?
The perfect cover letter formula can be written in three 10-minute slots:
👉🏽 Your Why
👉🏽 Add in Examples
👉🏽 Polish It
In this video you’ll learn:
• Is it important to send a cover letter when applying for a job?
• What is fundamental in a cover letter.
• How to write the perfect cover letter.
• How to keep the recruiter reading your cover letter.
• Example of a perfect cover letter.
• Usually, the first thoughts crossing your mind by the time you’re reading a job post are the key to this part: this is THE HOOK
• Ask yourself what are the reasons you want to join that company
• Pull out a unique story that underlies your reasons
• Match your motivation to the company’s values and mission
Add in Examples
• Now it’s time to highlight the hard skills listed on the job requirement
• Tie the ones you have with your measurable results – things you did in the past that can be repeated in the future
• Work on the concept of the skill and open it up by approaching your past experience. For example: if the job calls for people skills, add a line that explains how in previous roles you’ve managed relationships with board members, which taught you about working with opinionated stakeholders.
• Your cover letter is the hiring manager’s first impression of what kind of communicator you are.
• Leave them a call to action
• Run this simple check list:
✅ skim the letter
✅ sentences are complete
✅ the letter is organized in paragraphs
✅ general spellcheck
✅ double check the names (manager / company)
✅ ask a friend to review it (if you have time)
Thanks for connecting! You know, last year before the pandemic hit, | had big plans of working for (Company), but you didn't even know about it....
I came across (Company) after I was made let go from a job at a multinational. That occasion was probably my worst professional nightmare since it was my first day back from my second maternity leave.
In that terrible corporate context, | eventually asked for feedback for the HR manager that gave me the bad news. I wanted to understand how I could improve, and what was missing in my qualifications.
It came as a surprise, but she told me I needed to choose between the technical and managerial paths. Moreover, if I wanted the managerial one, I
should work on my leadership skills.
It felt like a bomb over my head. However, after recovering from that situation, the first thing I did was to look for a Leadership course, and this is how I
found the (Company).
I enjoyed the methodology and company culture: agility, passion, and modern educational approaches. Those resonate fairly well with my professional
I'm a slash professional... I have more than 10-year-experience in Corporate Finance, and my life purpose is to be in movement, learning, and
unlearning, impacting people on the path.
I believe that sharing the knowledge | have is a fantastic way to live my life and help one person at a time that can impact a whole organization and,
consequently, many other people's lives.
In every company I worked for, I made a difference by adding value to the financial reporting practices and creating work instructions and methodologies.
| also had the chance - and pleasure - to create several workshops for internal audiences, including the "Finance for Non-Finance People", which had
more than 100 attendees.
Please receive my CV, and I'm available for a call at short notice.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Let’s rock 🤘🏽
